About the worms and transport
In this mixed pack of Indian Blue Worms, Tiger Worms and Red Worms you will find capsules (worm eggs), hatchlings and young worms, as well as adults. A mixture of species promotes a competitive environment and stimulates breeding and food consumption.
Worms are harvested fresh on the day they are sent out and sent by Express post and are guaranteed to arrive in excellent condition.
The worms are packed in biologically active and beneficial bedding, which will give your worm farm a great start. The safe bedding is a mix of eco-friendly coco-peat and vermicompost which allows the worms to live comfortably for prolonged periods during shipping. The worm bags and boxes can all be fed to your worms, and the post bags are recyclable and can be put in your recycling bin.
These worms are also suitable for composting toilets and Bioytix systems.
Re-housing your worms
If you are not going to re-house your worms immediately, you can leave them in the bag in a cool place for a day or two. However, it is recommended that you establish them in their worm habitat as soon as possible. The worms may take a little time to adapt to their new environment and you may find worms exploring the walls and lid. This is completely normal and they should settle in and become accustomed to their new food supply.
Remember the golden rule - DON’T OVERFEED! A good rule of thumb: if there is about 10 to 20% of the last feed left over each time you feed, the worms will know there is enough food to keep breeding, but there will not be enough to become smelly and anaerobic.
