Almost all birds eat insects when they are available to them. It is especially important for nesting birds to have a reliable source of insects to feed their growing young. We carry live and dried mealworms for those who feed them to their birds and, in some cases, their pet turtles, lizards and frogs. Dried mealworms can be mixed in with your favorite seed mix or fed in their own feeder. Live mealworms require a "slick" sided feeder to keep them from crawling out.
