The type of Earthworms used in worm composting are called Eisenia Fetida. They are also known as red wiggler composting worms or red worms. These worms are the best worms for composting because:
- they eat A LOT (around half their body weight everyday!)
- tolerate being dug through by worm farmers (you)
- are easy to keep contained indoors or out
You can buy composting worms online (through this website!) and they will be mailed to you (in weather that is not too hot or not too cold).
