African Nightcrawlers are back

I don’t have alot of personal experience with these beauties, but what I do know is they are big eaters.  If you can keep your worms out of the cold in the winter and want to produce castings, this may be the species for you.

TexasRedWorms is proud to see what the students at Texas State have done with their Bobcat Blend project.  We are also proud to have had a small hand in providing worms for them years ago in their early stages.

TexasRedWorms on display at the Houston Zoo

12 Jun

This week we provided Texas Jumpers and set up bins at the Houston Zoo.  There is no shortage of worm food and the kids visiting will soon get to see some Texas Red Worms “Texas Jumpers” up close.  With the Houston heat, we decided Texas Jumpers would be the best choice for their location and set up.  Thanks Dustin and Elyssa for the opportunity it’s an honor to have our worms at the Houston Zoo.
