Ditch the chemicals and get with Nature's Hidden Gems - Pure Red Wiggler Composting Worms - Eisenia Fetida (Reds Only).

Red Wiggler worms are celebrated for their ability to effectively break down organic waste, resulting in the creation of a nutrient-rich vermicompost called worm castings, also known as Black Gold 🏆 in the world of gardening and farming. They easily adapt to different environments, can survive very cold and hot weather, and reproduce rapidly - making them super efficient waste processing machines!

The castings produced are the most potent natural plant food & fertilizer Earth has to offer. Use them on anything you are growing in soil:

  • Your Garden
  • Plants of All Types
  • Fruits & Veggies
  • Seedlings, Trees
  • Indoor Plants and more

It improves both soil fertility and structure, fostering the flourishing growth of plants. They are widely favored for composting of all types, thanks to their effectiveness, convenient size, no order, and low maintenance level (easy to care for).

You can put the worms in your garden directly too as long as you provide them with organic matter to eat, in your compost pile, lawn, and practically anywhere you have soil, food, and moisture they can thrive!

Their waste management abilities are on another level! Provide them with organic matter and they will convert it into worm castings. Instead of throwing your garbage away give it to your worms and save money, save time, and save the earth! Their diets are very diverse

Here is our more in depth guide on Getting Started.

How do I use my red wigglers to produce worm castings?

First understand that red wigglers are composting worms, meaning they feed on organic matter and create compost naturally.

  1. Put them in their environment and feed them kitchen scraps, grains, paper products, and much more. The worms eat this food and over time produce worm castings!
  2. Collect the worm castings and put them in your garden, plants, soil, and more. Watch as your plants thrive and grow healthy from this super effective organic fertilizer.

    Viable composting environments:
  • Worm bin
  • Worm composter
  • Worm bucket
  • Worm tower
  • Compost pile
  • Garden - provide organic waste on top or make vermicomposting trenches for your worms.
  • Garden bed
  • Lawn - if there are many leaves and organic waste for them to eat.

Will my red wigglers survive shipping time?

Worms may be small and soft, but don't let that fool you - these little wigglers can survive up to a week during transit! Our normal transit time is 2-3 days for all locations inside the USA, so you can bet on them arriving ready to work hard 💪.

Can red wigglers survive in extreme cold/hot weather?

Absolutely. Throughout the entire year the worms can survive and thrive provided that the soil's temperature falls within the 32 to 90-degree range. If it gets even colder than that don't worry the worm eggs survive and will hatch once the weather heats up again! They are super adapters. Also, If you possess an outdoor compost bin, the insulation can be taken care of using materials like mulch, hay, Styrofoam, or any substance capable of preserving warmth.

And of course you also have the great option of moving your worm bin/farm inside your house, garage, or underground. And guess what? They are odorless! Perfect for any indoor setting.

What do I feed my red wigglers?

Good Food

  • Fruit and Vegetable Scraps: apple cores, carrot peelings, wilted lettuce, etc.
  • Paper Products: Browns such as newspaper, brown paper bags, pizza boxes, and egg cartons.
  • Coffee Grounds and Filters
  • Tea Bags: Remember to eliminate any staples they might contain.
  • Crushed Eggshells: Maintain an optimal pH level in your worm habitat by supplementing with crushed eggshells.
