Frequently asked questions when ordering:bird_and_worm

1.       I live in California, and you ship out of Pennsylvania. Will the worms survive in transit?

  No worries! We ship nationwide with USPS 2-3 Day priority mail, so your worms will not be in transit for very long. We ship out every Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, so you will receive them on a weekday. 99% of our orders reach their destination without fail. We ALWAYS guarantee a live delivery, so if there are any delays or other issues while in transit, we have you covered with a free reshipment of worms.

2.       I live in the Northeast, can I still compost during the winter?

      Yes, you most certainly can. You can compost year round as long as the soil can be maintained between 40 and 80 degrees. If you have an outdoor compost bin, you can insulate the bin with mulch, hay, Styrofoam or anything that will retain heat. If you have a smaller bin, it is recommended to bring it indoors if at all possible. A garage or a basement will work perfectly.

3.    I work during the day and will not be home to accept my package, is this ok?

      Yes and no. Because the worms are a live product, if they are left in a mail box or a parcel locker for too long, they will not survive. If you cannot be home to accept your worms, we recommend having them held at your local Post Office or delivered to your door. You can leave delivery instructions before placing your order.

4. Why should I order from you over the other guys?

We always put our customer’s first! We will answer any questions that you might have before ordering, when your worms are delivered, and long after you have your worms growing.

    Why won’t this “add to cart” and let me order anything? I’ve been trying for two days to get in on this sale and the 250 free, but when I click to add and then check the cart, the cart says it’s empty.

Fantastic service

Always great service & fast shipping. I've been ordering for awhile now and every shipment my worms have been very active. The website blogs are also very useful and informative. Thanks Jim & family!

Green With Envy

It was pretty easy. I wished there was a way to measure their effectiveness. I'm hoping that my lawn will be so green that people will be green with envy.


Really great

My army of night crawlers are working hard. My compost is coming along beautifully.



I found my worms all over the garage when I woke up in the morning. They are strong escapees and I had to have a light over the bin to keep them in place. I suffered quite a bit of loss and hoping that they will multiple and be strong in numbers again!



Yes I was happy with both of my orders 1000 European big nightcrawlers. Second batch was a little bigger or a lot bigger than the first and I ain’t complaining. I was disappointed that I didn’t notice so I could have received whatever it was 20% off on my second order and I hadn’t requested that. Of course I did request consideration of that fact on a separate phone call to the young lady and wondered whether she’d give me 20+20 or whatever the percentage was on my third order. She said sorry worm. Well as I say said I was happy with the orders and as my garden opens up all will be ordering another thousand European nightcrawlers from someone and it’s a good chance it will be you guys, no guarantee but I am telling everyone you delivered them to me flawlessly and they were all wiggling. I have a car a day control group in a 5 gallon bucket that’s eating up the garbage as we speak.all the other ones I put into the garden have crawled around it away. No I await delivery from Amazon of a professional from a culture warmer stackable box. Think it’s also one that you recommend. Comes Monday then we will expand. Meanwhile I’ve got to start digging in disrupting and tearing out existing bulbs and plants and replacing open up garden soil so that’ll allow me to enter the innards of some of my private spaces and at that point I’ll be buying more worms. Want to consider giving me 20+20%. Ha ha ha thanks again. Highly recommend you guys bye. Don
