About our Red Wigglers
Red Wigglers for Composting
Red Wigglers are considered the most popular composting worm world wide. These earthworms are smaller than many other worm species and will grow up to 3" long. Don't let their small size fool you. These worms are voracious eaters and are known to consistently consume 1/2 of their body weight per day.
These worms reproduce much more rapidly than other earthworms. Mature Red Wigglers can produce 2-3 cocoons per week and each cocoon can contain 4-6 baby worms. The Average lifespan for each worm is 1-2 years.
Their fast breeding cycle is perfect for establishing a colony of worms in gardens, compost piles, and lawns. They enrich soil with micro-organisms that improve plant growth, germination, and crop yield.
Red Wigglers for Fishing Bait
Red Wigglers are a great bait for catching Bluegill, Sunfish, Perch, Crappie, and other types of Panfish. These worms can be used to catch fish year round. Some days fish will hit nothing else!
Caring for Red Wigglers
All orders are guaranteed to have at least the quantity listed in the description. Please be sure to remove the worms from their packaging upon delivery, to ensure the worms have sufficient food, moisture, and oxygen. Red Wigglers are easy to keep alive. They can be stored in compost/ worm bins at room temperature.
Worm Chow Directions
Sprinkle worm chow lightly over bedding surface, and lightly mist with water. Make sure that the worm chow is entirely consumed before adding more chow. Over feeding can result in mold and death of worms.
