Mealworms are the dried larval form of the mealworm beetle, which means they are a fantastic food source for any birds or animals who would naturally have an insectivorous diet. As well as wild birds, they can be fed to most reptiles and fish, and can be used in fishing baits. Our mealworms are frozen and then roast-dried, meaning they maintain as many of their natural nutrients as possible. They are also 100% natural, with no added colours, flavours or preservatives.
Many wild birds rely on the natural protein of insects to supplement their diet, keeping them healthy and helping them to maintain and repair muscle mass. Because dried mealworms give just the right type of protein birds need, they are a fantastically versatile feed for a huge range of wild bird species, including blackbirds, robins, bullfinches, greenfinches, starlings, dunnocks, tree sparrows, house sparrows, song thrushes, wrens and yellowhammers.
Mealworms can be fed to wild birds all year round, either as a ground or table feed, or in mealworm feeders. They are particularly great for wild birds in winter, as the cold weather will likely have killed off most insect life. If you are using mealworms as a wild bird feed in the spring, we would recommend soaking them in lukewarm water for around 20-30 minutes beforehand. This makes them more attractive to the birds, and makes them softer and more palatable for smaller birds and fledglings.

Available Sizes: 500g, 1kg, 2kg, 5kg, 10kg, 12.5kg, 15kg

LOVED BY MANY - At Maltbys’, we understand that feeding wild birds is both a highly rewarding and entertaining pastime. Also, with many bird species sadly in decline, feeding wild birds is now more vital than ever in aiding conservation efforts.

TAILOR-MADE NUTRITION - We work closely with our suppliers to find the best quality wild bird foods we can source, and because we understand that different bird species have different dietary requirements, we sell a wide range of wild bird seeds and mixes to suit all avian dietary needs.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – We source only the best quality foods we can find at the fairest possible prices, which means that our wild bird foods will keep your feathered friends returning to your feeding station again and again!

ONE OF THE UK’S BIGGEST SUPPLIERS - We receive new stock on average every 3 weeks or less, which means that we always provide the freshest possible product we can to our customers. This helps the product to retain its essential natural oils and nutrients, and reduces the risk of mould.
