Special Worms for Worm Compost?

Posted by admin on October 23, 2008

From all my research on worm compost, it seems that the Red Wigglers are the best worms for the job.  But, what about other types of worms?  Do you have to purchase Red Wigglers?  Can you simply use what you have in your soil, naturally?

I went to Yahoo Answers and found that I’m not the only one with these questions.

I want to set up a small worm compost to show the kids how it works and they want to have ‘pet worms’. Looking at a few various sites, they all say to use red wiggler worms. Will it work if we just use worms that the kids find in the garden? Do you really need a special type of worm?

I was a little surprised, yet quite pleased with some of the answers to those questions.  Read them in the comments to this blog post.
