Red Worms (Eisenia foetida)
Red worms are a great beginner worm! Red worms can double in population in ~90 days and once established have the ability to eat about half of their weight per day!
Red worms are cleaned before being weighted so that you get the weight in worms rather than in dirt.
2 pounds of worms will contain approximately 2000-3000 worms
1 pound of worms will contain approximately 1000-1500 worms
1/2 pound of worms will contain approximately 500-750 worms
1/4 pound of worms will contain approximately 250-350 worms
1/8 pound of worms will contain approximately 125-175 worms
1 oz of worms will contain approximately 75-125 worms
1 pound has the ability to eat 3.5 pounds of waste EACH WEEK!
Red worms are ideal for indoor composting systems as they require a temperature between 50-80 degrees fahrenheit.
A vegan diet is the best diet! Tomatoes and citrus DON’T do well though! If your system is indoors you may want to avoid foods from the Brassicaceae group (broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, etc.) because they will STINK! If you run out of veggie scraps then oatmeal, cornmeal, and cooked rice will work in small quantities, just be aware that these foods rot quickly and can sour your bin.
*There is a very small ratio of Indian Red worms that may be mixed in.
RETURN & REFUND POLICY
Worms are GARUENTEED* a live delivery! If worms do not arrive alive, it there is a 12 HOUR window in which I will accept a "dead delivery" return. The reason that the window for returns is so short is that these are live animals. If left in the wrong conditions, the worms will die quickly. IF YOU DO NOT THINK YOU WILL BE HOME TO RECIEVE YOUR ORDER, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR ORDER HELD AT THE POST OFFICE. This will allow you and the worms extra time for pick up.
