Live Mini Mealworms are the larvae of the vegetarian Tenebrio Molitor Beetle which makes them completely safe to feed to your wild birds. They are packed full of protein which makes them ideal for feeding young birds, fledglings and nestlings.

Order your mini mealworms in a bag, or in a lidded tub from which you can use a few at a time - without having to touch them if you are squeamish! With a little care they will last for weeks (instructions accompany every order).

The mini mealworms in round tubs come with a breathable lid and a small amount of bran which has been added for the worms whilst in transit, and these ventilated tubs can be used for storage but must be kept in a cool environment. The larger bags of live mini mealworms are packed in a woven polypropylene sack - so please ensure you unpack them once received as the sacks are not suitable for storage. On arrival unpack the worms and transfer them into a shallow, smooth sided container and add some bran or porridge oats (we recommend that you do not keep the worms more than 1” deep). 

If you’ve not used live mealworms before, then we suggest you start with smaller quantities in plastic tubs which can safely be stored at between 8-10°C in a cool, dark and well ventilated place. Mealworms can also be stored in the fridge. The reason for these conditions is because it causes the mini mealworms hormones to go dormant and keeps them from potentially morphing into a beetle, a well ventilated lid will also prevent your mealworms from becoming damp.

Simply store them in a cool dry place and not below 5°C. if you have a suitable shed or outdoor store, you may prefer to use these locations, but wherever you store, make sure that your live mini mealworms don’t freeze and are protected from frost, they must also not get too warm.  If you need any more advice on how to use or store these mealworms please do get in touch.
