The most beneficial thing you can do for your soil as a natural fertilizer. Redworms will consume anything organic such as table scraps, yard and garden waste, leaves, grasses and manure and convert it into worm castings that are 5 to 11 times richer in nitrogen, phosphates, calcium and magnesium than any other organic matter available today. Place 20 or so redworms per sq./ft. in gardens, lawns, vineyards and around trees. They can tolerate a wide range of temperature but are most active between 60 and 70 degrees. It requires a moist, pesticide free soil. Two pounds of redworms can eat a pound or more of organic matter everyday. Available October-June, the worms will be shipped directly to you from the growers with a live guarantee. 1 lb. box contains approximately 1,000 worms. Sorry, we cannot ship redworms to Alaska or Hawaii.
