The NEW dried insect taking the world of bird feeding by storm! Calci Worms, also known as Calcium Worms, are a similar grub insect to Mealworms but are much fatter and contain up to 50 times more calcium!
Calci Worms are the larvae of the Black Soldier Fly. With their extremely high calcium content, they're a healthy delicious meal for many garden birds. They help your garden birds gain bone strength, produce healthy strong eggshells to aid their young, and, in some particular species of garden birds, even lay more eggs.
Calci Worms are also the perfect enticing meal for hedgehogs! With their high calcium, fat, and protein content they're a much healthier and safe alternative to feeding dried mealworms which are now regarded as being a very unhealthy food source for hedgehogs.
Calci Worms can be fed in a very similar way to dried mealworms. Either place them in a small dish or on a bird table as a special treat for your garden birds alongside other foods like seed mixes and fat products. Another great way to feed Calci Worms is to mix them with your seed mixes and feed them from a bird feeder, helping to prevent larger birds from devouring them all.
