Composting Worms

  If you already have a worm farm or compost bin and need some worms to get it all started, I can supply 250g (thats a lot of worms) for $40 which includes courier charge (rural delivery will be $7 extra) or if you need a larger quantity - more likely for a new compost bin or Hungry Bin, 500g is $72.  When I send worms via courier, they are surrounded by lots of vermicompost and there will also be lots of worm capsules in the mix, this will be the next generation

If you’d like to know more about looking after your worms, we suggest you read the information under Worm Farming.

Worms for Composting toilets

I can make up a mix more suitable for the conditions of a composting toilet. The mix will contain a lot of Enchytaeids, which I have found to be an excellent companion to tiger worms. Generally 500g  worms is an ideal amount to start with. You can order the composting toilet mix simply by using the 500g product buttom, but make sure you let me know in the special instructions box that you require this mix. 

 

Worms can increase their population very quickly when conditions are right, so don't be tempted to purchase more than you actually need.  A stacking worm farm, such as the can o worms or worm cafe, really only needs 250g as a starter. the worms will breed freely and their number will increase to fit the space and food available. If you start with 500g, the worms will be less likely to breed as the population will self regulate and there is a higher possibility they will try to escape.
