MEALWORMS - ANOTHER TREAT TO ATTRACT WILD BIRDS
Feeding live mealworms (Tenebrio monitor), as a special treat to attract Bluebirds, songbirds, and many other species of wild birds has become a very popular addition to seed feeders at bird feeding stations.
If you haven't used mealworms before, they are the larvae of a beetle with a high protein level. Because their diet consists of fresh cereal and vegetables, they are extremely palatable to birds and a safe food source.
Many birders believe the mealworms are used solely for attracting Bluebirds. This is definitely not the case as many other species enjoy these little treats. A few known species to feast on mealworms include: Robins, Bluebirds, Blue Jays, Sparrows, Finches, Cardinals, Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Titmice, Wrens, Chickadees, and even Purple Martins. Mealworms can be offered from just about any feeder, and there are some feeders on the market especially made for feeding mealworms. Most birds will eat them right from a dish on the ground. Woodpeckers, however, are more temperamental and to attract them to mealworms will require a feeding place of their own. We now provide the best Woodpecker feeders available, check them out on this site. Many non-seed-eating songbirds are declining in number because of the loss of breeding habitats and lack of food. Making food readily available is vital to ensure their survival. Bluebirds are an excellent example of how a species has been re-established in areas from which they had disappeared. Enthusiasts have been quite successful in attracting Bluebirds to nest box trails, as well as backyards, by feeding our mealworms. We have available Bluebird nest boxes and feeders on this site.
