Worm composting helps you get rid of food waste, and gives you good quality compost for your garden.
Red wigglers are known to be the best all round composting worm - especially suitable for beginners. They are easy to care for and can survive Vancouver winter outdoors if given a large system that does not freeze over (needs to be sheltered from rain).
Worms by Weight*:
The worms (adults and juveniles) are weighed BEFORE bedding is added. Worms comes with approximately 4 L of inoculated bedding.
*1 LB of red wigglers consists of approx. 1000-1200 adult and juvenile worms. Count may vary depending on size of worms.
Worms by Count:
Adult worms are worms with a fully developed reproductive organ (the clitellum). The adult worms are hand counted every order. By default, the worms are packed in a small jute bag with small amounts of bedding.
You will often see guides for starting a new worm bin includes a step to add garden soil, manure, or finished compost to your system - this is the inoculation process that introduces beneficial microbes to your worm composter to aid with the organic matter decomposition process. TriCity Worm's Inculcated Bedding is comprised of the pre-existing bedding from the worms' current home that are already "inoculated" with such microbes and contains baby worms and worm cocoons. Purchasing the worms with inoculated bedding gives your worms a stress-free transition to their new home and eliminates the two-week recommended waiting time before your first feeding.
