Hungry Composting Worms

Charles Darwin said, "All the fertile areas of this planet have at least once passed through the bodies of earthworms."

Redworms, Eisenia foetida, will eat half their body weight daily in organic matter and convert it into dark, soil-enriching castings full of live microorganisms, growth hormones and nutrients. They can tolerate considerable heat but prefer an outdoor temperature range of 32°F- 84°F. They are most active at temperatures between 60°F- 70°F.

Redworms absolutely require a moist, friable, pesticide-free environment with plenty of organic matter. Although this species of worm is intended for composting, you may "plant" 4 worms/square foot in lawns and gardens, 100 or more worms/square foot in compost piles, and 20 worms/square foot of dripline in orchards.

Price includes delivery via Priority Mail (US Postal Service) either to your mailbox, or to a Post Office box.

Worms are sent out Mondays only. Place your order by Wednesday for a following Monday shipment (Monday holidays will delay shipment to the following week). You can also request a delayed delivery in the Order-Specific Comments box.

These creatures will die if left in direct sunlight or in a rural mailbox on a hot afternoon, or in cold weather.

We only guarantee viability if someone accepts and inspects the insects immediately upon delivery. You must contact us immediately upon delivery if you suspect a viability problem. Because of this, often the best address to use is a work address. If the Post Office is instructed to leave the package in a cool, safe place and it’s for a short period of time, viability should not be compromised, but cannot be guaranteed. If no one is available and no instructions have been left, delivery may be re-attempted the next business day. However, viability may be compromised and will not be guaranteed.

Industrious little guys!

These guys arrived very fast -- the day after shipping -- and are happy to process my food scraps for me with little effort on my part! Much better than throwing away my food scraps!
