Live foods will be irresistible to a wide range of species such as Robins, thrushes, Blackbirds and even hedgehogs. During the breeding season your garden birds will benefit from the additional energy that the protein in live foods can offer. We recommend you serve live foods in the morning (when they are less active), in a deep container with smooth sides to minimise their ability to escape!
This combination pack allows you to test a selection of live foods. It contains 15g of Waxworms (approx. 50 Waxworms), 100g Live Mealworms (750-900 worms) and 40 Earthworms.
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 live mealworms.
