When your food scraps pile up, don’t throw them out. Get yourself some Red Wrigglers! They are only 1 to 3 inches in length, and are about as thin as a pencil lead, but don’t call them little. When these guys group together, they become a voracious force, consuming anything in their path. Mountains of vegetable scraps wouldn’t stand a chance. The worms will break them one bite at a time. But don’t fear their powerful passion - encourage it! The food they consume gets digested and transformed into some of the most nutritious material that lawns and gardens could grow in: worm castings! These worm castings are 7 times richer in phosphates, 5 times richer in nitrogen, and 11 times richer in potash than the average lawn soil. This valuable substance is a result of your trash! Don’t supply local trash heaps with your waste; give it to some red wiggler worm! By far, these guys are the best gardeners on the
RED WIGGLER MIXES
planet, and will only help out your lawn or garden or both! Decrease waste, decrease the need for earth-destroying chemical, and increase organic production all at the same time!
Your worm order may contain several different compost worm species. (Eisenia fetida, Eisenia hortensis, and Perionyx excavatus.) Not to worry! Diversity in worm species is good because they work all layers of the compost, not just the top few inches. Giving you a better compost faster. This also gives an advantage in that as conditions change, certain species will multiply as conditions become unfavorable for another keeping you with a constantly healthy composter.
In addition to being the "kings of compost," Red Wigglers make great bait for trout fishing.
