Red wigglers, or Eisenia foetida, are the best compost worms. They live in close, highly populated conditions and don't burrow.
When you decide to start a compost bin, it's better to get your worms from a reputable worm breeder like us. This will ensure that you are getting healthy worms that were raised indoors and are comfortable with indoor worm bins.
Eisenia foetida is ideal for vermicomposting:
population can double every three or four months.
• They eat organic matter equivalent to half its weight.
• It doesn't mind living in captivity and tolerates different temperatures, humidity and acidity.
