    I have a question. I have built a 5×5′ area in my goat barn to a height of 2 feet with alfalfa litter from the goat pens and soil. I live in an area with about the same temperature range as San Antonio as I live halfway between Rocksprings and Roosevelt, Texas. The area is protected with cattle panels so that nobody, goats, chickens, guard dogs, or guinea fowl can get in there. I want to try red worms in there as the base of the area would probably be so hard and rocky they won’t go anywhere. Do you think it is worth a try?

    • Texas Red Worms January 23, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

      The set up sounds good, a couple things you will need to keep in mind: Shade, will they be out of direct sun?
      Will water collect? Adequate drainage will be important especially in your rocky soil?
      Keeping the bedding moist will be critical especially as the temps rise. Hopefully, this helps. Let me know if I can answer anymore questions.
      Thanks,
      Kyle

    • Katie January 6, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

      Hi there. I was wondering how much your red wiggler worms are per pound. Can I purchase them seperately since I wont be needing the little starter kit?
      Thanks,
      Katie

  2. Jeff Rodieck January 26, 2011 at 4:11 am #

    I live in San Antonio, Do you have a store or buisness address I can come to? This would be easier and faster for me than the mail.

    • Texas Red Worms January 26, 2011 at 5:00 am #

      You bet. I raise them at home, and would be happy to meet somewhere convenient. Shoot me an email or give me a call when and where would work best.

  3. Erwin Thomas March 7, 2011 at 3:44 pm #

    Hi
    My wife raises rabbits. Lots of poo. Can worms help? What do I need to do?

    • Texas Red Worms March 7, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

      Erwin,

      Yes, a worm bed makes an excellent compliment to a rabbit pen. You can add worms and other food waste under the rabbit hutch where the manure collects, and the worms will do the work. They will speed up the composting process and yield a pH neutral, nutrient rich, finished product that you can add directly to plants and soil.

    • Bob February 20, 2013 at 8:43 pm #

      I would like some of the rabbit manure. Send me an email.

        Bob,
        Thanks for the Jumper order they will be on their way to Porter tomorrow. Unfortunately, don’t have any rabbit manure for you just worms.
        Thanks again,
        Kyle

    Are you still selling worms? I’d like to get some Alabama Jumpers to aerate my raised bed and maybe some red wrigglers for my compost pile.

    Clicking the link only brings me to the donation screen. I thought maybe that’s it, but there is nowhere to specify what I want, if I just put in $40 it could be a starter bin or the AJs. <:/
    I must be technologically impaired…

    I live in San Antonio, I could come to you if that's easier. Probably be better for the worms. Actually, I'd rather do that.

    • Texas Red Worms May 20, 2011 at 3:29 pm #

      Yes, I would be happy to help. You are more than welcome to come by for a pick up. To order by PayPal, just click the link and indicate what you would like in your order and where you would like it shipped. I will email a confirmation. The PayPal link indicates donation, but it is a purchase. The version of wordpress that I am using for the blog for some reason only allows the PayPal link to show as “donation”. My apologies for the confusion. Please feel free to call or email anytime.
      Thanks,
      Kyle

    I’m in Naples, FL. Have a veg garden 4×8. How many Alabama jumpers do I need in my raised bed?

    Thanks Kyle for bring by another container of red worms. I appreciate your professionalism and personal service.

    Much to my dismay, we have acquired a cat that seems to think that our front garden near our front door is her new litter box. Would worms help in this area? If so, how?

    • Texas Red Worms January 10, 2012 at 7:19 pm #

      The worms will help w/ break down the cat waste, but you will need to make some preparation in the bed to make it a “worm bed”. Keeping it moist and adding organic matter will help, as well.

  9. Ryan Durbin April 8, 2012 at 7:21 am #

    Kyle,

    I have a 60′ long x 6′ wide garden for shrubs and plants as well as about 2000 sqft of lawn that I would like to attempt to use alabama/texas jumpers to assist with aeration and the breakup of heavy clay. My garden is surrounded by a stone wall and is raised from the yard. I have tilled the garden thoroughly as well as added a layer of compost/hummus to my garden along with some planting mix soil and a lot of bark mulch. My questions to you are, Is this a good idea for me to do? How much worms would I need if so? What might be the timeline that they could help? How much would this cost? Can they be shipped?

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    • Texas Red Worms April 9, 2012 at 2:46 pm #

      It sounds like you are off to a great start. Yes, you can add worms. I recommend starting with one or two starter farms to see how they do. How much time depends on the amount of worms, temperature, moisture, and amount of organic matter. Under good conditions they can lay eggs every 7 days or so, and double in population in around 90 days. Yes, shipping is $10 and usually takes a couple of business days.

  10. Diamante Luna August 23, 2012 at 9:15 pm #

    How much would it cost to just buy 1 pound of each worms separately?

    • Texas Red Worms August 25, 2012 at 4:26 am #

      Per pound: red worms: $30 + $5 shipping
      european night crawlers: $35 + $5 shipping
      Jumpers are sold by starter farm only at this time: $40 + shipping.
      Please call if you have other questions.
      Prices subject to change based on availability.

    What do you do with your worm farms during the winter? I live in Houston and wanted to start a worm farm. Should I wait until the spring?

    • Texas Red Worms October 2, 2012 at 2:16 am #

      Winter is not a problem in Houston, and you can start anytime you’re ready.

    • Sarah October 2, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

      Steven, should it get unusually cold you can bring the worms inside, they don’t smell. or get out and roam around. I started mine in my (clean and modern) kitchen with no problem at all.
      The following is a direct quote from Texasredworms.com:

      “Red worms (Eisenia Fetida) do best in temperatures between 55-77 degrees Fahrenheit, but can survive from 40-80 degrees F. Outside worm bins are subject to the elements and sometimes much more extreme temperatures in Summer and Winter. If you are determined to keep them outside a worm pit is an effective way to combat these extreme temperatures. The underground temperature holds a more constant temperature. Thermal inertia means that below ground temps. stay cooler that air temps. in Summer and warmer in the Winter.

      I have built worm pits outdoors in South and East Texas, and they have done very well. A worm pit can be a simple worm bed that is dug several inches underground in a shady spot with a protective cover, or by placing a plastic pot or bucket halfway or more into the ground to keep out of the elements.

      I keep several smaller bins indoors. Plastic containers make terrific worm bins, and can be kept odor free, and bug free indoors. You can purchase starter farms that are set up w/ bedding, food, castings, and hundreds of worms from TexasRedWorms.com.”

    Will your worm kit grow worms in the pan handle of Florida?

    • Texas Red Worms October 3, 2012 at 11:46 am #

      Yes, many folks are successfully raising worms in Florida.

  13. Laura Hudnall October 24, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I live in Richmond, TX (southwest of Houston) and am interested in the Alabama Jumpers but am concerned about fire ants getting them when first released. Do you have suggestions on how I can release them and not have them attacked by the fire ants?

    • Texas Red Worms October 24, 2012 at 9:08 pm #

      Food grade diatomaceous earth will take care of fire ants. As long as its dry, sprinkled around it will stick to the bodies of insects and make tiny cuts that will dry them out and do them in. DE is natural and won’t hurt your worms.

  14. Cynthia Phillips January 25, 2013 at 4:11 pm #

    After receiving a worm farm how long can they stay in the box they come before they need to be moved to something larger? When moving them to another container, what do I use in the new container? Thank You.

    • Texas Red Worms January 25, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

      Cynthia,
      They will be fine for several weeks, possibly a couple of months. The reason you want to move them into a larger area or split your bin is to give them more room and food to reproduce and grow. I start new bins with aged compost that is cool and moisten it with a spray water bottle. Last, I lay on top some cardboard or newspaper as a mulch blanket to keep them cozy and moist.
      Thanks,
      Kyle

    Need to know for sure that you are selling real Foetedia and not that euro red worm? Also need to know prices for amounts if you do have the true Feotedia, “Tiger worm”

    • Texas Red Worms February 7, 2013 at 5:30 pm #

      Vince,
      Thanks for the question and the time on the phone this morning. I will be shipping your redworms today. I look forward to your feedback.
      Kyle

  16. Rocio February 19, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    I have a big yard and my question is if I just let the Alabama jumper go all over the grass or do I have to dig a hole in the grass and put the alabama inside the hole.

    • Texas Red Worms February 20, 2013 at 2:07 am #

      You want to dig a small hole and continue to feed in that spot. You will want them to stay close together so they can locate one another and populate. Once they are established you can repeat the process and continue across your yard.

  17. Glenn March 31, 2013 at 4:42 pm #

    I have built some raised garden boxes for my wife (4’x8’x2′). I filled them with compost/soil mix I bought a local nursery. The compost/soil mix is still breaking down and is low on nitrogen. I am looking to add worms to the box to enrich the soil. What kind of worms to do you recommend and how much per box. I live in Plano TX (collin county)

    • Texas Red Worms April 11, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

      In a raised bed of that size I would suggest one box of jumpers.

  18. Ryan April 23, 2013 at 5:03 am #

    Approximately how many jumpers come in 1/4 order? I have 4 x 8 raised garden bed ,would this amount suit my needs? I’m looking to improve the drainage of my garden and add to the organic matter i’ve tilled in over the years. I haven’t been able to work out the clay based top soil i started with and from what I hear, these worms will do the trick or help with my drainage problem. Thanks in advance for your help!

  19. Audrey May 23, 2013 at 6:14 pm #

    Received the Red Worms and Europeans! Lively and healthy! How much can they eat in one week? Can they eat their weight in a couple of weeks? Squash, potato peelings, coffee grinds, stale lettuce, food such as this mixed in with their peat and newpaper clippings. Thanks.

    • Texas Red Worms June 3, 2013 at 4:25 pm #

      Fresh table scraps probably need to be limited to a handful a week per pound of worms each week in one corner of bin. Composted waste that is cooled down can be fed a little more liberally. Conditions like temp will have an impact on their appetite. Monitor every few days and see how food is being consumed.
      Thanks,
      Kyle

      • Barry Rinehart July 11, 2013 at 11:21 pm #

        I understood that red wigglers (eisenia foetidia) eat approximately 1/2 their weight daily – meaning a pond of red wigglers would eat 1/2 pound of kitchen waste per day. Is this not true?

      • Texas Red Worms July 16, 2013 at 6:24 pm #

        That is possible, but conditions vary (temp, moisture, contents of food). You will get to know your worms and see how quickly they eat certain types of food. Outside temp has a lot to do with how active worms are. Heat of the summer and cold of winter usually slow production down.

  20. Leo November 6, 2013 at 11:16 pm #

    Just out of curiosity before I buy the Alabama jumpers, which species are they? I’m uncertain if they are the unmatured gracilis, the mature agretis, or one of various species within the family.

    • Texas Red Worms November 7, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

      Leo,

      Great question. To the best of my knowledge they are immature gracilis. If you want to discuss further, feel free to give me a call at 210-310-5046.
      Thanks,

    Hello Kyle(Texas Red Worms):
    A couple of questions on your Alabama Jumper Farm…
    A)Will you guarantee live delivery to the NYC area?
    B)What is included in your Alabama Jumper Farm kit?
    C)I too have 2 8′ X 4′ veggie raised garden beds… in the winter, while beds are dormant, what do I do when my kit arrives? Will I have to raise in worm bin(Rubbermaid tote – like European Nightcrawlers and Red Wigglers?)until planting season(too cold out there and some snow already accumulated.)?… Not quite certain if these would be ideal conditions for newbie AJ’s. what to do?…
    D)When I place in garden beds, will I have to keep a constant supply of organic matter(newspaper, cardboard, cofee grounds, tea bags…etc)seperately in my beds? or will worm castings, along with sphagnum peat moss already in soil, suffice?

    Thanks
    Dan in NYC area

    • Texas Red Worms December 16, 2013 at 8:20 pm #

      Dan,

      Yes, we will guarantee live delivery. So we will need to keep an eye on temps on your end to make sure we are not sending into extreme temps. The kit is about 1/2 lb of jumpers and their bedding pulled from my Jumper bins. I would wait until the thaw to introduce your Jumpers to your bed, and for the next few months just bin raise them like your other species. For the best results you will want to continue to feed, they could do fine without it, but you want to give them a reason to stick around and produce more.
      Thanks,
      Kyle

      • Dan in NYC December 17, 2013 at 1:23 am #

        Hi Kyle, Thanks for getting back to me. Temps here in the N.Y.C area are a bit frigid(mid 30’s)at the moment, along with some snow. Begining Thurs. (12/19)temps will be in the mid 40’s. You also have
        the christmas & New Years holidays in a wks. time. Not quite certain what temps the AJ’s can withstand and, I’m certain everyone would like to enjoy their holidays so, pwrhaps after the holidays?… your thoughts…

  22. Albert December 27, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    How many AJ coming in a 1/2 pound?

    • Texas Red Worms December 28, 2013 at 10:34 pm #

      Depending on the size of the worms 250-500 worms in 1/2 lb.

  23. Brandi barnett January 11, 2014 at 5:32 pm #

    Just ordered a pound of red worms to start my composting with! Excited to get started and to order from a local company!
