Worms and Supplies
We supply compost worms as a combination of Tiger worms and Dendrobaena to create a superior worm composting mix, which we call the "Tiger Worm Mix". The Tiger worms are genuine Tiger worms (Brandlings). This mix provides a better overall composting performance than Dendrobaena alone.
The mix is available loose or supplied in our "Boxa Worms!"
This product is based on the Worm Colony as developed by a University. The principle is the same but applied to composting worms, a population of the composting worm mix is set up in the "Boxa Worms" living in a specially prepared bedding material the worms have been raised in this means they are happy and at home in this bedding, the whole, unopened box is put into your composting bin, wormery or compost heap about 6 inches below the surface and watered well, the box will start to rot down and the worms can move out into the waste in their own time, unlike tipping in loose worms this means that the worms are not suddenly introduced into a new environment that could possibly be harmful or is at least upsetting to the worms, when this happens the worms will often attempt to crawl away from the waste they have been introduced into, with the "Boxa Worms" this does not happen, it also means that you do not have to handle the worms.
Additionally, our prepared bedding material provides an ideal solution to the problems of establishing composting worms, as well as saving you time sourcing and preparing your own materials. The prepared bedding is made from material already processed by worms and refined. It contains an abundance of micro life that immediately inoculates freshly added waste, allowing the worms to start feeding straight away.
Finally, our specially designed worm bedding kits include both composting worms and prepared bedding material combined. Ideal for making a wormery or compost bin. Simply place the combined mix straight into your wormery or compost bin, thus eliminating problems with establishing composting worms in fresh materials.
To get an idea of the number of worms in each kit there are roughly 1000 worms to a kilo.
