Dried mealworms are a delicious treat that is high in calories and protein, which makes it appealing to a variety of wild birds such as Robins and Blackbirds. Soaking the mealworms in water overnight can enhance their juiciness, making them even more enjoyable for the birds that visit your garden. One benefit of using dried mealworms as a treat is that they can be stored for extended periods compared to live mealworms.
When feeding Hedgehogs, it's crucial to keep in mind that they should consume dried mealworms in moderation, with a limit of four per week. As an alternative, Calci Worms are a rich source of calcium, protein, and essential fats, making them an excellent option for feeding Hedgehogs.
To cater to your frequent feathered guests, you can add the mealworms to your regular feeding station. To attract new bird species to your garden, it's advisable to place a second bird feeder close to their perching location. This helps them to adjust to receiving food from you.
