Live Mini Mealworms are ideal for feeding young birds, fledglings and nestlings. 

The mini mealworms are packed full of protein, which are supplied in either a handy tub or a resealable bag. The mealworms in lidded tubs allow you to tip out a few at a time - without having to touch them if you are squeamish! With a little care they will last for weeks (instructions accompany every order).

The live mealworms packed in round tubs come with breathable lids with a small amount of bran added for them whilst in transit, the larger bags of mini mealworms are packed in a woven polypropylene sack - so please ensure you unpack them once received, as the sacks are not for storage.

These mini mealworms can be kept for several weeks under the correct conditions. For bulk sacks of worms, on arrival unpack them and transfer the mealworms to a shallow, smooth sided container and add some bran or porridge oats (we recommend that you do not keep the worms more than 1” deep). For the tubs of mealworms all you need to do is ensure they are kept in a cool environment as they come with food. Live mealworms can also be stored in the fridge

If you’ve not bought live mini mealworms before, then we suggest you start with smaller quantities in plastic tubs which can safely be stored at between 8-10°C in a cool, dark and well ventilated place. The reason for these conditions is because it causes the mealworms hormones to go dormant and keeps them from potentially morphing into a beetle, a well ventilated lid will also prevent your mealworms from becoming damp.

Simply store them in a cool dry place and not below 5°C. if you have a suitable shed or outdoor store, you may prefer to use these locations, but wherever you store, make sure that your live mealworms don’t freeze and are protected from frost and are also not too warm.

Live foods are shipped separately to the rest of your order as they come directly from the supplier.
