Most people start out with one pound of worms for one composting unit. If you want to get up to full production quickly get 2 lb of worms. Red Wiggler, Eisenia Fotida, worms are approximately 900-1000 to the pound. Each pound of worms ships with one pound of worm bedding.
Worm shipments go out on Mondays to ensure they arrive via Priority Mail before the weekend. Worms ship every Monday unless there’s a Holiday. Worm orders must be received by Wednesday evening in order to be shipped the following Monday.
