SINCE 1981!

The level of available worm will be restricted to 500g maximum purchase, our website platform will not allow us to fix the drop down, which will allow people to buy more. However, customers will only be sent 1 500g bag and refunded the outstanding balance.

This has been a very devastating year for our company, but with hard work and focus we will forge forward and endeavour to get production levels back on track. We are breeding living organisms that take a certain time to grow in this case it’s 15 weeks, things cannot be rushed, once you lose 3 weeks of production there is no way to get it back unfortunately.

I’m sorry for the problems that this may cause you all, but we are trying to make sure that all customers get something to feed their animals.

Mealworms - Live & Dried

During the weekend of 12th May one of our cabins went up to 38 degrees and wiped out 2-3 weeks of our smaller worm production.  Unfortunately this will affect our ability to supply our normal levels regular mealworms for the next 2 – 3 weeks so we have had to remove 2kg, 4kg 6kg and 10kg quantities for this period

Great food for Reptiles, Wild Birds, Cage Birds and Small Mammals.

Mealworms are the larvae of the Tenebrio Molitar Beetle. Their diet is vegetarian which means they are safe to feed to animals and birds without passing on potentially fatal diseases which may be present in offal-fed larvae such as maggots. They are a clean odourless and relatively inexpensive livefood, rich in protein and easy to store. Mealworms are popular as livefood for many species of aviary and garden birds.

Mealworms Uses and Application

Mealworms are an extremely popular livefood for cage birds and wild birds. They consist of 50.4% crude protein and because of their pure cereal/vegetable diet they are an extremely safe livefood to use.

Mealworms are suitable for Soft bills, insectivorous birds and Finches above Siskin size. The movement of Mealworms has the effect of bringing Lizards to the feeder and stimulates feeding.

As fishing bait, Mealworms can be used to catch course fish and are particularly popular for fishing Trout. Mealworms may also be fed to small carnivorous mammals.
