Mealworms

Mealworms are the larvae of the beetle Tenebrio molitor. Birds such as chickadees, bluebirds, wrens and woodpeckers will eat mealworms, if they are placed in a feeder accessible to the birds. Because mealworms can crawl, it is best to place them in a feeder where they cannot crawl out.

Mealworms can be kept for weeks at 40 – 50° F. For longer storage they should be placed in bran flakes, wheat bran or corn meal in a container having air holes. A potato or apple slice should be kept in the container for the worms to use as a moisture source.

Oriole Feeder

Dimensions: 9″ x 10¾” diameter

Orioles eat many types of food. They crave citrus when they arrive in the spring, eating orange halves and grape jelly. Then they quickly turn to eating nectar, and then switch almost exclusively to insects after nesting. Our oriole feeder offers nectar with several feeding stations, includes jelly wells in the lid and a place for an orange half. It’s easy to hang and dishwasher safe. It also comes with a lifetime guarantee.

(Bird food not included.)

EcoClean Dinner Bell Feeder

Capacity: 1 qt
Dimensions: 16″ x 12″ diameter

Our most versatile feeder is now available with antimicrobial product protection built into the tray. Though the tray now features a smoky look, the clear roof still allows birds to easily find food. The Dinner Bell™ tray prevents food from falling to the ground, and its dome raises and lowers, allowing you to feed smaller birds while deterring larger birds, such as starlings, grackles and doves. The dome also provides birds and food protection from the elements. Backed with a lifetime guarantee, the Dinner Bell is easy to fill and hang, and its tray is top rack, dishwasher safe.

Available exclusively at Wild Birds Unlimited, our EcoClean® feeders and accessories are the most advanced bird feeding products available on the market. EcoClean products feature a patented technology that inhibits the surface growth of damaging bacteria, mold and other microbes. This protection won’t wash or wear away, and it uses environmentally friendly technology.
