The Compost Worm Mix
The Compost Worm Mix is worm-rich (Red Wigglers), cocoon-rich living material full of micro-organisms. They can be used to stock a new system. When a new system is stocked with this material the population in the new system tends to explode very quickly. Remember, this habitat is the material that has been their home and where they have already been thriving. There is almost never a tendency to roam as there is when stocking systems with worms that have been bought by the pound and shipped in a dry, non-living material. The shipping process is much less stressful on them as a result. It has been proven that younger worms and especially cocoons that have been placed in a new environment adapt much better than adult worms.
Species disclaimer –
It is impossible to guarantee 100% pure worm species with any type of composting worms. We have not received any complaints of cross contamination. But there is always a chance of receiving a few “other” species in your order. These “other” species are usually also great composters. Once again, to date, we have not received any complaints on this issue but it does happen in the worm industry. While we raise both Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawler worms here at our own farm, we will occasionally drop ship the worms to you from one of our partner worm farms.
