Birds love eating mealworms which are packed with protein and energy and make a nutritious treat when combined with other bird food. You can have them delivered direct to your door either fresh and wriggling or dried for the more squeamish.
Although you can feed live and dried mealworms to your garden birds all year round they are especially important in the breeding season when parent birds will feed them to their baby chicks.
