Dried Mealworms are welcomed by a variety of species in your garden and contain all the protein without the wriggle - perfect if you find handling live foods difficult. One species that will be really appreciative (and could be renamed the 'mealworm gourmet') is the Robin.
Protein is an important nutrient for garden birds throughout the year. In spring, they will be busy finding a home, building a nest, laying eggs and caring for young, which all put tremendous demands on parent birds. And in winter, it is more difficult for them to actually find natural sources of protein-rich caterpillars, bugs and worms. You can do your bit to help by providing a reliable source of protein-rich food such as dried mealworms.
As well as being important to the survival of birds (particularly young chicks), protein-rich foods, such as mealworms, will benefit a wide range of species. They are attractive and nutritious to many other garden visitors such as hedgehogs, badgers and squirrels.
