Red Wiggler Worms (Eisenia fetida)
Composting with red wiggler is rewarding and easy. You will need:
- Food waste
A simple plastic container is all you need. A common size is one foot wide and two foot wide. An inexpensive ten gallon tote container makes a great worm bin. Add to the container a layer of bedding four to six inches deep. Coco coir peat is one of the best beddings available, but shredded newspaper, old leaves, old potting soil, and peat moss all will work. Make sure the bedding is moist but not saturated with water. Place the worms on top of the bedding and they will go down by themselves. Food and other organic waste can be burried into the bedding where the worms will compost them. To learn more read my vermiculture blog or order a copy of my book Red Wiggler Worm Composting Guide.
We also sell a complete worm composting kit that included everything you need to start composting.
Red wigglers are small worms, but even so are loved by fisherman and fish alike. If a larger worm is desired the European Red Worm is excellent for bait and also compost well.
