Aves mealworm feed

In practice, mealworms are often grown on wheat bran. They are often offered without food by pet shops. The enthusiast then feeds the mealworms all kinds of concentrated preparations or feeds them chicken feed, bird rearing feed, etc. in the expectation of improving the nutritional value of the mealworms.
With the first method, feeding concentrated products, there is a danger that the mealworms absorb such high concentrations of nutrients that they die or that they can become a danger to birds or reptiles. Particularly high levels of vitamins A, D and iron and other minerals can cause poisoning symptoms. Feeding mealworms with calcium-rich ingredients has its limits in terms of acceptance. Digestion of different calcium sources varies widely. In addition to calcium, they can also contain unwanted phosphorus, fluorine and high levels of iron.
With the second method, feeding chicken feed, rearing feed, etc. to mealworms, the desired levels of nutrients in the mealworms are never achieved because the feed intake of mealworms is low and the concentrations of nutritional components in these feeds are much too low. It is therefore not easy to bring the nutritional value of mealworms to the ideal level.
Aves meal-worm food provides the necessary amounts of extra calcium and all vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
Aves mealworm food is given to mealworms that have first fasted for 2 days and have an empty digestive tract. Aves meal-worm food is then provided for 1 day. The remaining feed, which is obtained after sifting out the mealworms, contains hardly any mealworm manure and can therefore be reused many times. The mealworms fed with Aves mealworm food contain 0.8% calcium and 0.3% available phosphorus; the right amount of calcium and phosphorus with the most ideal calcium:phosphorus ratio. They also contain all the necessary vitamins, minerals and trace elements for birds and reptiles.
