Worm question from Ft. Worth, TX

28 Jan

I was wondering if Texas or Alabama jumper worms are widespread enough to expect to find them outdoors. I’m considering adding some to raised beds and mulched areas, just hoping to seed from some wild ones if possible.

Tim,
Yes, you can find Jumpers in North Texas.  You can also find Nightcrawlers  also known as dew worm or Missouri giant.  Jumpers can be bin raised and the nightcrawlers require too much room to be bin raised.
You can populate almost any sized area with one Jumper starter farm with a little care and time.
Thanks,
Kyle
