Fact of the Day
Mealworms have a healthy appetite and can grow rapidly in good conditions.

 

FEEDING SUGGESTIONS


Chickens

Chickens will go crazy for mealworms. As a high protein treat, this can aid in healthy egg laying and strong shells.
Quantity: 10-12 per chicken / per day
Method: Throw mealworms on the round around chickens and the pecking will begin!
Notes: Never feed mealworms at sub-zero temperatures.

Lizards & Other Reptiles

Mealworms are like chocolate to many lizards and reptiles, including Snakes, Bearded Dragons, Skinks, Blue Tongues and Geckos.
Quantity: 3-4 per day
Method: Use a small feeder container and place on a dry and secure part of the enclosure.
Notes: We don't recommend feeding mealworms every day, due to the high protein and fat content. Keep them as a special treat. Never feed mealworms at sub-zero temperatures.

Aviary Birds

Mealworms are like chocolate to many birds, including finches & parrots.
Quantity: 4-6 per bird / per day
Method: Place mealworms in a feeder container (plastic bowl, tuna fish can, margarine tub) and leave inside aviary
Notes: Ideal for breeding season during spring or as special treat all year round. Never feed mealworms at sub-zero temperatures.

Turtles

Feed mealworms to Box Turtles, Sliders, Mud Turtles & Painted Turtles.
Quantity: 3-4 per day
Method: Mealworms will drown quickly. We suggest hand feeding your turtle(s) using tweezers and ensuring each gets an equal amount. Alternatively use a small feeder container and place on a dry and secure part of the enclosure.
Notes: Remove drowned mealworms if they enter the water. Never feed mealworms at sub-zero temperatures.

Pet Fish or Bait

Use as bait for fishing or feeding to pet fish at home.
Quantity: 1-2 per fish per day / use bait as needed
Method: Ensure you buy the appropiate sized mealworms. For example, small mealworms are right for goldfish. Drop mealworms into water near fish. Remove any drowned mealworms the fish ignore.
Notes: Never feed mealworms at sub-zero temperatures.

Wild Birds

Attract wild birds to the garden or window! Using a home made feeder, or commerical variety, you can have beautiful wild birds coming to the garden for bird watching.
Notes: Never feed mealworms at sub-zero temperatures.
