Now that I’ve been putting out mealworms in my yard, I’ve been getting some Rock Wrens hopping around. I was putting the worms into a little hanging dish, but I wasn’t getting many takers. I started sprinkling the mealworms around in the mulch and they disappear quickly. I also now have a fat lizard hanging out in the yard who is probably excited about the new location of the mealworms too.
I feel once I started putting the mealworms in the raised beds, I’ve seen an increase in both Rock Wrens and Northern Mockingbirds. So, as much as I hate the mealworms, they do seem to be bringing more birds to my yard.
