Spring Mealworm Sale


Mealworms are an indispensable ingredient of a diverse feeder array but are most popular in breeding season. While adult birds are feeding hungry mouths in the nest or teaching fledglings how to forage on their own, local breeding species will eat as many mealworms as you put in the feeders. Live mealworms are more likely to bring immediate results and are by far the better option during nesting season. Roasted mealworms can be mixed with seed blends and don't require special handling. If you haven't used mealworms in your feeders before, breeding season in the time to give it a try. See our mealworm video for a little taste of what it means to the Carolina Chickadees and Carolina Wrens in our yard.
