1 pound of Red Wigglers
My worms are shipped bed run, which means that you receive worms (all ages plus cocoons) along with worm compost and bedding. Worms shipped this way are quite happy and are most successful at colonizing a new bin. Note: you will not receive one pound of worms in a small amount of soil like you would from a bait shop. Worms are shipped in as dense a population as naturally occurs in an active worm bin. This ensures that they will be healthy when they arrive. Bedrun contains worms in as dense a population as will be healthy. Depending on the mixture of worms in the scoop (adults, juveniles, and cocoons) the actual number varies greatly. Typically those orders with fewer adults will have more cocoons. The most important thing to remember is that it is vital to receive your worms in good health so that they can colonize your bin. Worm populations typically double every 10-12 weeks, so you want a healthy population to start breeding right away.
