The worm mix is only available for local pickup in Ottawa, Ontario and preference is given to our customers who buy the Worm Studio.

 

The earthworm mix contains hundreds of red wigglers of all ages along with cocoons contained in microbe-rich bedding. It weighs about 3 pounds and is created to kick-start your composting adventure.

Whom is the Red Wiggler Worm Mix for?

Our worm mix is for new worm parents looking to start a worm bin. Any experienced worm composter will tell you that the secret to a successful bin are the essential microbes as they are the first to break down your food scraps so the wormies can eat the smaller pieces. If you are starting new, our worm mix approach provides you with microbe-rich material from our mature bins so you can have a stable system right from the start. Since the worms are not separated from their original microbe-rich environment, they get less stressed during transport and are unlikely to escape from their new home (aka your worm bin). On the other hand, we've noticed that worms shipped in sterile bedding like peat moss or coco coir are quite the escape artists! 

That said, if you already have an established worm bin and simply want to add more worms, you're better off buying worms from someone who sells it by the count or weight.

About our wormies

Our wormies are fed a diet of spent beer grain from our neighbourhood brewery (getting them nice and tipsy for procreation *wink wink*) and flourish in a temperature controlled environment. We do not use processed bedding like coco coir or peat moss as they are energy intensive and environmentally destructive. Instead, we use shredded cardboard from discarded shipping boxes that were probably headed to landfill.


 

All our packaging is 100% compostable (including our paper tape) and should be torn up and added to your worm bin as bedding.

FAQ


Can I use worms from my backyard?

Probably not unless you know for sure they are one of the few species of composting earthworms. Common backyard earthworms are not good at composting and don't like living in confined spaces.


What do I feed the wormies and how much?

Your worms should be fed a vegetarian diet and the amount you feed them depends on how many worms you have. A pound of red wigglers can realistically eat 1/4 a pound of scraps a day.
Once your Worm Studio is mature and operational for a few months, you can feed between 3-5 kg a week.


So....what about smells?

Apart from the lovely smell of cedar, properly balanced contents in a Worm Studio will have a faint aroma resembling the forest floor. But if your bin has some funky smells, then you know that something's wrong inside. It's most likely due to overfeeding so just mix in a bunch of fresh bedding, and skip the next feeding. The smell should go away.
