Everything you need to know before ordering is covered in this video. PLEASE NOTE: if you chose to order worms by the pound instead of the starter bag, you will NOT receive starter bedding.
Two choices, worm starter bag or worms by the pound:
Worm starter bags are worms (1 pound, around 600-1200 worms) PLUS pounds of active worm bedding. My worms are shipped in the same bedding they have been working for months. Reduces stress INCREASES success. (see below for more info on starter bags)
When you order the starter bag, All you have to do is dump the contents in your empty bin and you are ready to start composting! You add NO additional bedding initially.
If you order worms by the pound, you will need to prepare worm bedding for your worms.
Online Worm Composting Class
I am proud to be the ONLY seller of Red Wiggler worms offering a Online Worm Composting Course( free with purchase of worms or $14.99 by itself)to ensure your worm composting success.
This course is a combination of video and text and takes about 30 minutes to watch all videos.
Order the class without worms:
There is a steep learning curve with starting a worm farm but the online class and my availability to answer your questions will put you on the right path.
which are: 4-5 pound of active worm bedding including small worms and worm eggs PLUS a FULL pound of worms.
A HALF starter bag is 2-3 pounds of bedding plus 1/2 pound of worms.
Why do I recommend worm starter bag over worms by the pound? After selling worms by the pound for years, I was tired of having my customers fail at worm composting. So, I began making worm bins for them and realized the reason they were succeeding now was because of the active worm bedding in the established bins I prepared. The starter bag was born! Worms shipped in a few cups of dry peat moss, you receive worms VERY stressed out and must have the bin conditions perfect to keep them alive over the next few weeks. My starter bags give you little room for error.
CRITTER ALERT: BUGS ARE A NORMAL PART OF COMPOSTING ECOSYSTEM. THERE WILL BE OTHER BUGS IN YOUR STARTER BAG. NO CAUSE FOR CONCERN, THEY EAT TOO.
