Red Wigglers (Eisenia fetida) (older spelling: Foetida) – a.k.a: Red Worm, Tiger Worm, Manure Worm, Composting Worm, Brandling Worm, Trout Worm, Panfish Worm, Red Californian Earthworm, etc. Red Wigglers are part of the epigean species of worms. They are the most common and most widely used composting worm. They are very easy to manage, multiply at an extreme rate if space and food materials are available. And are very tolerant of a wide range of temperatures, and can process organic matter very fast.

They can be used as a bait worm when a smaller worm is desired, i.e. approximately 3 inches, they are known for their vigorous wiggling while on the hook. They also make a great supplemental food source high in protein for fish, reptiles, and birds. But they are best known for their vermicomposting abilities.  When full grown there are approximately 1000 worms/lb.

We add inventory at the beginning of each week.  All orders will be filled in order (First come - First serve).  Please feel free to email us with your order number to inquire how long it will be before your order is filled.

It is not possible to guarantee 100% pure worm species with any type of composting worm.  It is always possible for occasional roamers that leave there growing tray and get into another species tray.  There is always a chance of receiving a few “other” species in your order.  These “other” species are usually also great composters.  We have received some complaints that Asian Jumpers have been found in our Red Wiggler orders. While we raise both Red Wigglers, European Nightcrawler and African Nightcrawler worms here at our own farm, we will occasionally drop-ship worms to you from another worm farm we have partnered with.
When placing an order please read our shipping policy for details on when we ship and what to do if there are any problems with your worms upon arrival.

Barely any worms

I had to order from another company because the amount of worms in the package were not the pound I had ordered. Order from Jims. Same price more quantity. Don’t waste your money here.

Great service and product

I had a problem with postal delivery ( not due to MW worms) and sent an email to MW worms— in the evening. And they called me within an hour with reassurance and good suggestions which I followed. I was able to help rhe post office track them down and the worms were packed well and in great shape when I finally got them. I highly recommend this company. You rarely find customer service like that any more.
