Red Wigglers King of Compost Worm

Composting worm

The Red Wiggler is definitely the most common composting worm choice due to its tolerance to wide range of temperatures and PH. This worm will tolerate temperatures as low as 40°F and as high as 100°F. The ideal temperature is 68°F to 76°F. The ideal PH level is 7 but it is not as sensitive to PH levels as other composting worms.

The Red Wiggler grows to 1 1/2 to 4 inches making it a superb food choice for fish, chickens, pet turtles and lizards. They are also used as fishing bait. They can survive in water temperatures between 40°F and 100°F. Red Wigglers are very active on the hook, and last longer under water than other fishing baits. Also these worms don’t need to be refrigerated.

The Red Wiggler breeds by lying next to another worm but in opposite direction. They secrete thru the clitella and this secretion is collected in storage sacs. After the worms separate, the clitellum secrete albumin which forms a cocoon. The Red Wiggler is able to lay 3.3 cocoons a week. These cocoons are round in shape and change color during the development cycle, first white, then yellow and lastly brown. The cocoon can produce 3 to 4 baby worms.

These Red Wigglers King of Compost Worm are sensitive to vibrations so its best to feed worms once or twice a week. Make sure not to over feed worms, by alternating locations of food within the bins. Make sure to cover food with bedding after feeding. The use of egg shells sprinkled on top of bedding helps control PH level.

You can feed worms non citrus fruits, vegetables, tea bags, coffee grounds, coffee filters and crushed egg shells. Manure from horses, cows and rabbits are good as long as they have been composted a little so they don’t heat up worm bin. Grass clipping and other yard debris are good also. Paper products such as paper towels, newspaper and cardboard are acceptable. Some notable exceptions: Citrus Fruits, meat dairy, human and pet feces, oils and oily food.
