The worms are shipped to you express post in a recycled container with a suitable medium for the worms to survive.
Express costs $16.00 for 3 kilos. This also varies depending on where you live so if the postage too excessive for us to cover the increase we will let you know so you can decide if you want to go ahead with the order.
This cost is included in the cost of the worms.
You need to fill in acustom quote form if you would like some worms.
The worms are harvested on a Sunday and posted on a Monday so they are not stuck in a post office somewhere and get to you in a matter of days still fresh and alive.
Your fresh worms will consist of a variety of composting worms that have been lovingly looked after by a diligent composter.
Some people say that you can’t put compost worms in the ground and they are only good for worm farms. This might be true, but I have not found this to be the case. I have put them in the ground in one spot in the garden and found them over the other side of the garden 6 months later.
What they do though is bring wildlife to your garden. Lizards, birds, frogs (if you have a pond or a rainforest setting) and other little critters that feed on worms. To me, this is a good thing. It increases the bio-diversity in your garden and produces a healthier garden.
Don’t be afraid of garden critters. Usually, they are more afraid of you than you are of them. Just prepare yourself when working in the garden with gloves and good shoes. And if you live in a mosquito-ridden area – a good natural mozzie repellent is a must.
I have heard that cooking up papaya leaves (paw paw) and drinking the juice will repel all mosquitoes. Though beware – it apparently stinks and you will repel all your friends also. 🙂 Great if you want to become a hermit.
