Acadiana Worm Farm also offers the most commonly known composting worm red wigglers ,( Eisenia Foetida).These are thought by many to be the best composting worm available and for most, the easiest to raise.
The wigglers that we sell are bed run, which means they are a mix of mature adults, young wigglers and cocoons. The Red Wiggler Worm is a prized composting worm. Most people raise them for composting food scraps, outdoor composting and fishing bait for small panfish.
The red wigglers can eat half its body weight per day or 3 1/2 pounds of food scraps per week per pound of worms. Red wigglers eat many types of nitrogen based food scraps such as vegetables, fruits, melons... They should not be fed lemons, oranges etc. due to the acidic levels within them nor meat or milk by products.Red wiggler worms can be fed Purina Worm Chow as a primary diet if you prefer or used as a supplement due to the nutritional value which is loaded with assorted grains, minerals and vitamins to help raise fatter healthier worms.They are easily raised indoors or outdoors in worm bins at a temperature range of 55 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
