FAQ

  1. What are the benefits of red wiggler composting worms?
    These hardy and easy to care for worms consume up to half their body weight in food scraps each day. They thrive on a diet of fruit, vegetable, bread, and paper scraps. They can withstand a wide range of temperatures, and reproduce more quickly than larger species. Because they live in colonies, they can withstand the high density of life in a worm bin.

  2. How much moisture should I give to red wiggler composting worms?
    The ideal moisture content for a worm's home is between 60 and 70 percent. You can check the moisture level of your worm's home by squeezing a handful of bedding. If water drips out, your worm home is too wet and you should add some dry bedding or newspaper. If the bedding feels crumbly and doesn't hold together, it's too dry and you should add some water.

  3. What should I feed my worms?
    Red wigglers prefer soft, decaying organic matter such as fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, and shredded newspaper. You can also add cooked grains, pasta, and rice to your worm bin, but avoid adding meat or dairy products as these will attract pests and produce odors. Although worms will eat citrus it's best to feed in moderation.
