Mealworms Are for the Birds

Many birds eat insects naturally, so feeding dried mealworms to the birds is a natural thing to do. Plus, you’ll enjoy watching birds such as bluebirds, chickadees, wrens, towhees, woodpeckers, robins, catbirds, nuthatches, thrashers and others devour these mouthwatering morsels! A Red-breasted Nuthatch was seen taking mealworms from a feeder and caching them at a rate of three per minute.

Mealworms are the larvae of the beetle Tenebrio molitor. Dried mealworms have a long shelf-life and are easy to serve and store.

Birds typically look for food around the same time each day, so you can place worms in a feeder or tray at the same time the birds regularly visit. Mealworms are a great way to attract birds that don’t ordinarily come to seed feeders.
