Redworms are compost worms, with many different uses. Scroll down for more ideas.
Why Raise Redworms?
- Composting: The worm castings in Vermicompost provide natural fertilizer time-release nodules that are superior to the best potting soils (Keep it wet and they keep eating-no need to turn the pile)
- Fishing: Fish love home-raised redworms - hook sized too
- Container Garden: Worms will keep it tilled - you'll have the healthiest garden soil in your area
- Potted Plants: Just a few will do (sometimes they will crawl out)
- Raised Beds: (Heavy mulch), redworms fertilize by living on decaying mulch - grow healthy natural food that tastes so good because it is not grown from chemical fertilizers
- Pet food: Treats for birds, fish and other critters
- Sprouting: Use castings and seeds start fast
- Hobby: Great for all ages, easy and fun
- Business: Sell worms and castings or use them yourself for a commercial garden
- A great full- or part-time business
- Many people make the house payment with Redworm money
- Sales of 1000 cups a week is possible for 1-2 adults and/or kids that like to stay home and work.

Compost & Garden
- Vermicasts (worm poop) are the key ingredient of vermicompost (worm compost)
- Cast in the worms alimentary canal (worm gut), the casts contain practically everything a plant needs
- Worm gizzards grind down decaying plant matter and calciferous glands add carbonate of lime that neutralizes the acidity of the decaying mater
- The casts are encapsulated in a mucous membrane that slowly releases the nutrients over time as needed by the plants
- Fresh worm casts have in readily available-to-plant form five times the nitrogen, seven times the phosphates, and eleven times the potash as the best topsoil
- Worms process mineral earth into this mix
- Worms have beneficial bacteria in their alimentary canal that enhances the compost/soil
- Worms have special enzymes and hormones in their alimentary canal that enhances the compost/soil
- The nutrients left behind by the vermicast are water soluble
- Vermicasts help compost/soil retain water
- There is no better way to recycle kitchen, yard, and garden waste than through a worm-bed
- Even regular compost is greatly enhanced by processing through a worm-bed
- Earthworms are Mother Nature's little natural garden tillers - put them in your garden!
- Earthworms aerate the soil - good for both the roots and good aerobic soil bacteria
- Earthworms condition garden soil as needed by the roots
- Red Wigglers live longer in the water
- Red Wigglers emit a fetid odor into the water that drives fish wild
- Don't thread them over the hook - hook just under the skin of the clitellum (the band a way down
behind the head) and hook right into the head. This leaves the tail wiggling and looking alive to
- Done right on a small hook and line you can catch more fish than even bigger bait - if you have the
angling skills to land the bigger fish that way! If you are looking for a sport - there it is!
- Pound for pound earthworms bring in considerably more per pound than cattle on the hoof (or
- It doesn't require acres to feed them; you can grow them in your basement, garage, barn, backyard,
- You can do your entire business over the internet
- Sell worms for composting
- Sell bait worms
- Sell to established bait runners in your area, who are always looking for worms
- Run your own routes
- Sell Vermicompost, Worm Tea (can bring > $40/gallon), Vermicasting, and Vermipods (worm egg casts)
- Sell worm books, worm bins, other bait items, fishing accessories, seed, and garden accessories
(items I'll soon be adding)
- So start your own worm farm and you'll be seeing green too!
