Live red wiggler composting worms
GUARANTEED alive or your money back!
Each worm order contains a balanced population of mature worms, juvenile worms, baby worms and cocoons all mixed in with worm castings. The worms are packaged in a breathable cloth bag with lots of bedding for comfort.
Red wiggler worms (Eisenia fetida) are voracious little critters perfectly suited for vermicomposting. These hard werkers can eat up to half their body weight in food waste per day! To begin, we recommend feeding them a handful of kitchen scraps once per week. The worms will chow down on the buffet and by the end of the week, nutrient rich worm castings will exist in their place.
What makes our worms special?
Contrary to popular belief, the worms cannot eat the food scraps directly, because they don't have any teeth! Instead, the worms feed on the mesophilic bacteria that break down and feed on the food waste. For this reason our worm orders contain a mix of fresh bedding and, the original worm castings. The castings will inoculate your new composting bin with the necessary mesophilic bacteria required to jump start the composting process. Without this inoculation, new worm bins can take weeks to build up the proper bacteria profile for efficient composting.
