Protein-rich foods, such as mealworms, are extremely beneficial to a wide range of species, not just birds. As well as being important for the survival of young birds, they are attractive and nutritious to many garden visitors such as hedgehogs, badgers and squirrels.
As well as being a rich source of protein, Oil Enriched Mealworms also have a high fat content to help give your garden birds those vital calories they often need.
Protein is an important nutrient for garden birds throughout the year. In spring, they will be busy finding a home, building a nest, laying eggs and caring for young, which all put tremendous demands on parent birds. And in winter, it is more difficult for them to actually find natural sources of protein-rich caterpillars, bugs and worms. You can do your bit to help by providing a reliable source of protein-rich food such as Oil Enriched Mealworms.
