Attract Robins, Thrushes and Blackbirds to your garden with their favourite snack! Feeding your flighty friends mealworms is a sure way to enjoy more wildlife in your garden, but the mess associated with live mealworms is a pain. These dried mealworms are an excellent alternative – all they have been carefully dried to retain all the goodness and nutrients our feathery neighbours deserve and yet are far less hassle to handle (and to clear up after) than live mealworms. 

Being particularly high in protein, they are widely used as food for a variety of house pets, including birds, fish and reptiles. They are also used as fishing bait and in bird feeders for attracting wild birds to the garden.


  • All the nutrients, none of the mess
  • Weight: 1kg
  • Perfect for birds, fish and reptiles

Please note: Mealworms are not suitable for consumption by hedgehogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My birdies love these Ordered online & received an email the same day to say they were ready to collect..great as I was on my way to the nearest Robert Dyas 15 miles away from where I live. Order was ready & waiting ...important when on an hourly bus service. Great value at R Dyas on various products but these were half price & I'm on a tight budget. These will keep the birds happy for weeks...robins, blackbirds, starlings all visit the feeder regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garden Birds Love Them I regularly purchase this 1kg bag of dried mealworms throughout the year, but always look out for when they are on offer at £9.99 which is excellent value. I usually soak them in water before I put them out for my garden birds and enjoy watching a good variety of birds feeding on them - robins and blackbirds are my favourite, but I also get frequent visits by a mob of starlings. (NB. When this bag is priced at £19.99 it may be cheaper to buy 4x250g bags at £3.99!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feathered Friends Feast These mealworms are good value bird food at the lower price and are gone very quickly each day. As soon as I am back indoors after filling the feeders, the starlings come swooping down. Other, smaller birds can be seen feasting after the starlings have left and even the parakeets have been spotted hanging upside down to get their share!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional value not only is this product exceptional value for the money but also, although this may sound somewhat bizarre, I have tried several different brands of mealworms but I can definately say the robins much prefer the J & J one, so of course I will continue to buy this one - must keep the robins happy !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mealworms I am in complete lockdown and have been from early March and likely to be until the end of August. I am a very regular custome at Dyas in north Street, CHICHESTER where I can get the products I use for the many birds in my garden. In lockdown and with stores shut I went to Dyas on line for mealworms. It was one of the places I trust utterly. I was satisfied with delivery and product. I would order again from Dyas for anything I need. Les Stewart

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best ever I am 88 years old and live alone. I really enjoy feeding the blackbirds in my garden each day. Over the years I have found these Mealworms to be their favourite. They are so fat and juicy. Robert Dyas is the best value for money. I was so pleased when my daughter ordered them for me online during COVID lockdown as I will not buy them from any other retailer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value for Money Bought online C n C from store. This is the best value( in the country, I reckon) for 1kg of mealworm. Superb product. I don't look anywhere else for this product because I know I have found the best. My chooks absolutely go barmy for them & the wild birds come in droves. Cannot recommend highly enough.
