Our old favourite, the Mealworm (Tenebrio molitor) is probably the original live food and the number one choice for feeding wild birds because they are a native British species of insect. Their 20-25mm bodies are made up of over 48% crude protein and 40% fat, making them an excellent, proven food for all insect eating garden birds.
Orders placed by 1pm Monday to Friday are despatched same day. Orders placed out of these times are despatched next working day by Royal Mail.
We do not recommend feeding mealworms to hedgehogs because they can be a cause of Metabolic Bone Disease, read how in our article here.
