The favorite food of bluebirds! Other visitors to feeders such as chickadees, bluebirds, wrens and woodpeckers will all also eat mealworms. Since mealworms can crawl, they should be offered at feeding stations in a bird feeder designed so that they can not crawl out. Mealworms may be purchased and kept for weeks at 40 - 50 degrees F, but if you wish to store them longer, place them in a container with bran flakes, wheat bran or corn meal. Be sure to put air holes in the top of your meal orm container! Also provide an apple or potato slice so that the mealworms may use it for a moisture source. Larvae can be held in a state of dormancy by refrigerating them at 40 to 50 degrees F but be aware that lower temperatures can kill the meal worm larvae.

Meal worms & Insects - Meal worms are popular schoolroom experimental insects but also a fantastic and easy food to offer wild birds. They are simple to obtain, and they go through complete metamorphosis. The four stages of total metamorphosis are egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Meal worms are the larval stage of darkling or flour beetles. They can be bought very inexpensively and are sold as food for fish, turtles, frogs, toads, lizards, and birds. Meal worms add protein to numerous birds' diets. For example, bluebirds might eat 85% insects. Providing these worms to birds contributes extra nutritious food during nesting season and feeds the baby birds a beneficial start on life, and may save a bird's life while it can not discover food during the winter or during a abrupt cold snap in spring. When early arriving migratory songbirds arrive in a garden, there may not be too many insects in time.
