Livefood - Mealworms
It isn’t just the breeding season that garden birds benefit from a supply of live foods, mealworms and waxworms can be fed at any time of year and will always be taken.
If you find the thought of feeding live foods a bit daunting, please don’t! There’s nothing to it and you’ll soon get used to the idea of feeding mealworms once you’ve given them a go (it’s really not that different to putting out a bird seed mix).

Mealworms are the larvae of the Tenebrio Molitar Beetle. Their diet is vegetarian which means they are safe to feed to animals and birds without passing on potentially fatal diseases which may be present in offal-fed larvae such as maggots. They are a clean odourless and relatively inexpensive livefood, rich in protein and easy to store. Mealworms are popular as live food for many species of aviary and garden birds.
Mealworms are very popular with wild birds. They consist of 50.4% crude protein and because of their pure cereal/vegetable diet they are an extremely safe livefood to use. Mealworms are suitable for Soft bills, insectivorous birds and Finches above Siskin size. British Bred Mealworms for sale direct from Haith's.
