Red Wigglers are composter champions! We guarantee healthy, good-looking live worms as we bred and harvest them with great care. We recommend starting with 1/2 to 1 pound of worms for the average customer.
1/2 pound- $45
1 pound- $65
In optimum conditions, one pound of worms can process up to one pound of kitchen scraps every 2 to 3 days. Most of our customers start with ½ to 1 pound and let the population grow on its own. In a classroom situation for quicker and more dramatic results, 1 to 2 lbs of worms will work.
Our Worms have been harvested for the year now.
Check back with us again in early Spring when they return to the store.
