Compost worms

Our worms are harvested fresh on the day and are delivered nationwide. Our safe bedding – a mix of eco-friendly coco-peat and vermicompost – allows the worms to live comfortably while in transit.

Our worms are also suitable for composting toilets and Bioytix systems.

Worms are purchased and provided separately from our habitat range. If you’d like to purchase a habitat with worms please contact our office so we can discuss what you’re trying to achieve from your habitat and recommend the most appropriate quantity based on your requirements and to suit your budget.

To enquire further about our worms or to make a purchase please contact our office on 07 3195 6969 or email admin@wormsdownunder.com.

Rehousing your compost worms
If you are not going to re-house your worms immediately, you can leave them in the bag in a cool place for a day or two. We recommend you establish them in their Worm Habitat as soon as possible. View our re-homing your worms information sheet.

The worms may take a little time to get use to their new environment and you may find them exploring the walls and lid. This is completely normal and they should settle in and get use to their new food supply within a few weeks.

Remember the golden rule and DON’T OVERFEED when you are first starting out. A good rule of thumb is if there is about 10 to 20% of the last feed left over each time you feed, the worms will know there is enough food to keep breeding, but there will not be enough to become smelly and anaerobic.
