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 FedEx 2 Day Express, so your worms will not be in transit for very long. We ship out every Monday through Friday (holiday permitting). 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.

Red worm review

Surprised as to the box size when it arrived. Delivery came earlier than expected/scheduled. Puzzled as to how the worms are counted. They must come when their numbers are called. Placed them on the ground and wished them well as they buried themsleves.

Need worms?

Get them from Uncle Jim’s!! They come from Pennsylvania to California with no problems in a great little zippered bag that I have been passing along to friends and neighbors. I’m hoping try can aerate my adobe soul. My box turtles love his mealworms!! Thank you Uncle Jim!!
