Red Worm Eggs

31 Oct

A Red Worm egg sac or cocoon can be laid every 7 days by a healthy mature red worm.  Red Worms can reach sexual maturity in about a month and a lifespan that can go into the early teens.  Red worms are hermaphoditic which means they both fertilize and lay eggs.  Eggs can have 4-30 baby red wigglers.

Keep your worms well but not over fed, moist environment, temps from 40F-80F, and in a quiet dark place and they will produce well for you.

    I never knew what those things were until recently, and now see it as a sign of good soil. If there are laying eggs, they must be healthy!

    Are you able to sale to me red wigglers and make arrangements to ship them to East Africa?
    If so what would the cost of 1000 egg capsules including shipping be.

      Don,
      Unfortunately, customs would probably be a problem. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.
