Do you like to fish?
These worms are also an excellent choice for grabbing any fish's attention!
The "Eisenia Foetidas", often nicknamed "Red Wiggler", is a smaller red worm popular for composting. They are best known for “staying put” as long as the conditions are right. The average size is 2-3” long, they have a dark red sheen and a flat belly. Eisenias usually average 900-1000 worms per pound.
"Eudrillus eugeniae", African Nightcrawlers, can grow to 6-8" long, have a flat belly and a purplish sheen; usually averages 600-1000 worms per pound. When grown to full size they are an exceptional fishing worm!
Note: African Nightcrawlers are excellent composters, but may take 4 to 6 months under ideal conditions for them to mature into large fishing worms.
Hybrid Red Wiggler
"Pheretima Hawayanus", commonly known as the Hybrid Red Worm, Hybrid Red Wiggler, and some might refer to them as "Alabama Jumpers".
They are a round, light colored, tough skinned worm with white and pink rings near the head; they are hand picked to be fishin' ready and sold by the count. They are a hardy worm and reproduce easily. DO NOT REFRIGERATE these worms.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1. I live in California, and you ship out of Florida. Will the worms survive in transit?
Yes! We ship nationwide with USPS 2-3 Day priority mail, so your worms will not be in transit long at all. We ship out every Monday/Tuesday (Wednesday if we're busy!), so you will receive them on a weekday and they are not left on a loading dock over a weekend. 99% of our orders reach their destination without fail. We ALWAYS guarantee a live delivery, so if there are any delays or other issues while in transit, we have you covered with a free reshipment of worms. Simply contact us within 48 hours after receiving your worms with pictures.
Question 2. I live in the Northeast, can I still compost during the winter?
Yes, you most certainly can. You can compost year round as long as the soil can be maintained between 40 and 80 degrees. If you have an outdoor compost bin, you can insulate the bin with mulch, hay, Styrofoam or anything that will retain heat. If you have a smaller bin, it is recommended to bring it indoors if at all possible. A garage or a basement will work perfectly.
Question 3. I work during the day and will not be home to accept my package, is this ok?
Yes and no. Because the worms are a live product, if they are left in a mail box or a parcel locker for too long, they will not survive. If you cannot be home to accept your worms, we recommend having them held at your local Post Office or delivered to your door. You can leave delivery instructions before placing your order.
Question 4. How much Black Gold (Compost) will 1,000 composting worms create for me?
Our 1,000 count of composting worms can create between 8 and 16 ounces of compost per day! But wait, there’s more! These worms double in population every three months, so as your worm population grows, the amount of Black Gold that they can create will grow as well. A year from introducing your 1,000 composting worms into your bin, you should now have 16,000 composting worms, which will create 8-16 pounds of composter per day! If you start out with 5,000 composting worms, by the end of one year you should have 80,000 composting worms outputting 40 to 80 pounds of compost per day.
Question 5. Are there any shipping restrictions?
We are currently able to ship to all of the 48 continental United States as well as Alaska. We are also able to ship to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. We are unable to ship live worms to Hawaii due to strict laws regarding introducing non native worms into the soil. We are unable to ship to any country outside of the United States.
Question 6. Why should I order from you over the other guys?
We are a small, family-owned business and dedicated to ensuring all our customers are happy and satisfied. If you have any questions we are happy to answer them and make you a priority. We have an excellent relationship with USPS and always GUARANTEE a LIVE delivery! Shipping worms understandably carries a degree of risk of them ending up dead; however, such cases are extremely rare and if it does happen know we will stand by our guarantee and reship your order FREE of charge.
Note: Please do not refrigerate worms.
