One half pound of Red Wiggler Worms (Approx. 200-250 worms) are packaged in approx. 5 pounds of substrate, and full insctructions.

Housing and additional substrate not included - we recommend 40-60 L rubbermaid or other opaque plastic totes such as the "Blue Planet" Flip-top tote from Canadian Tire. Make sure your bin is not see-through.

Red Wiggler worms are one of the best indoor composters there are. Compact, efficient, and odorless, they make an excellent in-class addition to a vermiculture or Waste and our World unit. They are also popular for use in homes to efficiently recrcle your kitchen plant waste into a nutrient-rich organic fetilizer called vermicast, or worm castings. Worm fertilizer is a fantastic soil conditioner and proven to be lower in contaminants and higher in saturation of nutrients that plant compost alone -  and can be used in houselants or your garden. Woms are low-maintenance, cost effective, and environmentally friendly. All you need is an opaque box with ventilation to house your worms in, and a little bit of patience to get the castings out.

Do not release red wiggler worms outside. 


Sorry, no refunds. Remember: you are dealing with living animals. Nature is not perfect; in the wild, survival rates would naturally be very low, with only around 5% of butterflies surviving to adulthood. In captivity, you should expect a much higher rate of 70%-90% survival. Please incorporate these statistics into your lesson plan, and never assign a single caterpillar to a single participant, as some of them will not make it. It is always ideal to observe insects as a population.
