Please Note: If ordering worms with a Hungry Bin or Subpod, the worms come direct from our worm growers so they will not arrive together. We try to co-ordinate that they arrive as close together as possible but don't panic. The worms will last in the box and compost they are in for up to 4 weeks. So also no major rush in getting your Hungry Bin set up if that is what you are using them for.
500 gram pack of composting worms for use in the 'Hungry Bin' wormery. 500G is approx 1500 - 2000 worms depending on the size of the worms. The 500 gram pack can also be used to re-start a disused Worm Works wormery or any other worm farm.
In ideal conditions the worms will double their numbers in 6 weeks providing there is sufficient food available. The full population of worms in a Hungry Bin wormery is 16,000 worms, if you start with 2000 worms this will take 18 weeks to achieve. 500G or 2000 worms is the minimum required to start your Hungry Bin. The more worms you add at the start, the quicker your bin will reach full processing capacity.
