Great food for reptiles, wild birds, cage birds and small mammals.
Mealworms are the larvae of the Tenebrio Molitar Beetle. Their diet is vegetarian which means they are safe to feed to animals and birds without passing on potentially fatal diseases which may be present in offal-fed larvae such as maggots. They are a clean odourless and relatively inexpensive live food, rich in protein and easy to store. Mealworms are popular as live food for many species of aviary and garden birds.
