Red Wiggler Worms – Nature’s Wonder Workers

Red wiggler worms have been identified as one of nature’s wonder workers. Not only are they the best composters, they also produce the finest organic fertilizer known today. You will be able to experience a lot more great rewards when raising red wiggler worms as they’re also great at aerating the soil and as bait for fish.

Red Wiggler Worms as Composters

Composting with red wiggler worms can be a rewarding activity. It is through their involvement in the natural process that they are able to produce nutrient-packed castings out of your everyday garbage. Yes, you’ve read it right! Your collection of garbage can be turned into their bedding and can also be fed to these soil creatures; and they will be able to break these down at a much faster rate as opposed to other composting methods. But you’ll also have to note that you can only feed them those that are also organic based (avoid feeding them stuff that includes meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, spicy, oily, salty and citrusy materials as these have bad effects on them).

Red Wigglers provide the best material for the soil

Red wigglers composting worms produce the most valuable and cheapest resource for conditioning the soil. Their castings are typically composed of nutrients and trace minerals (those that they’ve absorbed from all the organic materials that they feed on). Those of which when used are also very beneficial to plants rooted beneath it. When the soil is healthy, it will be able to make its collection of water (its water retention property will also be enhanced) and nutrients readily available for the plants consumption. Healthy soil that has been nourished with red wigglers compost can also help fight off potential diseases (such as root and plant diseases), while keeping its root systems strong and protected as well.

Why the red wiggler worm is not just any ordinary compost worm

Red worms aren’t your typical earthworms. You won’t be able to find their specie buried and crawling just anywhere in your garden (unlike those garden worms). These worms have been particularly designed to survive in long confinements within a worm farm (they’re built for this). You can breed and raise them, sell them for a profit, or use them as bait for fish (they weren’t called wigglers for nothing). They are also heavy eaters (these worms can eat half as much as their own body weights), and are very prolific breeders (they mate more during warmer temperatures). So if you’re worried about having to buy more worms to keep your supply going, then need not worry. These crawlers, when given a proper care and maintenance, will be able to multiply very quickly.

Making a profit out of these wonder workers

Red wiggler worms can be sold for a number of things. These worms can be sold to commercial breeders, fishermen, and even dealers (typically sold for laboratory or aquarium use). Aside from that, worm compost can also be sold since gardeners and farmers today are already turning to using organic fertilizers and natural pest control instead of products that have harmful chemicals in them.

    What do I do with my worms if my worm farm has not arrived yet? Can I store them in my fridge? For how long?

      Hi Richard,

      The worms can stay in the bag that they are shipped for 3-4 days after delivery, as long as they are given about 1/2 cup of water every day, and are kept at temperatures between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. They should not be kept in the fridge – that would be too cold for them. If you do not anticipate the worm farm arriving in -4 days, you would likely need to set up a temporary home for the worms. Please let us know if you need guidance on how to do that.

      Thanks,
      Uncle Jim’s Worm Farm
