Red Wiggler Composting Worm Starter Bags includes:
- ~1000 red worms
- 4 lbs. of active bedding materials
- 1 - coco coir brick
You will receive worms in various stages of maturity known as a bed-run. This will include hatchlings, adolescents, mature breeders, and cocoon laying adults. Our red worms are of the species (Eisenia foetida and/or Eisenia andrei).
The included bedding materials will help inoculate your new worm composting system and ease their environmental transition. Coco coir works as an outstanding bedding material for use with vermicomposting.
Our Red Worm Starter Bag is a great way to start off a homemade vermicomposting bin or your new Worm Factory.
If you are new to vermicomposting, we encourage you to take a few moments and read our Advice for Vermicomposting. Prior to ordering your composting worms we recommend preparing bedding materials in advance of their arrival. It is always best to prepare the habitat for your worms 5-7 days prior to introducing worms. This will allow the microbial life within the bedding materials to develop and aid in a stress-free transition into their new environment.
Providing a healthy habitat for your worms with the proper amounts of air, water, temperature control, and food will reward you, your plants and soils with many benefits for years to come.
We ship worms throughout the lower 48 of the US, shipped thru UPS, FedEx or the USPS. Orders of worms are shipped Monday thru Wednesday depending upon your shipping location.
