Cocoons can be a cost-effective way to start vermicomposting or speed up worm regeneration by adding cocoons to your existing bin! Each cocoon can contain 1-5 baby worms! 

Raising worms from cocoon to sexual maturity takes 3-4 months. Hatching occurs in 2-5 weeks in good conditions. Good conditions for hatching include: stable temperatures of 20-30°C and moist bedding covered to retain moisture. Baby worms love soft, nutrient rich foods such as fruit and vegetable scraps. Favourites include apple, banana, strawberry, mango and cucumber. The smaller and softer the food, the easier it is for the babies to eat. Therefore making fruit/vegetable smoothies and mixing with bedding is ideal food for them.

Get a jump start by adding cocoons to your worm bin, as it can take your worms time to adapt to their new bin and start laying cocoons. Red Wiggler cocoons are a great addition to any worm bin, compost bin, garden bed, or many other applications. Cocoons also are very hardy and ship very well in the mail.  Each cocoon can contain 1-5 baby worms.

Red Wigglers cocoons ship when temperatures between Kitchener, ON and shipping destination are above 0°C. Please check temperatures en route such as Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, etc. to check weather conditions.

IMPORTANT: If you contact the carrier and change any shipping details during transit, a double shipping charge will be applied. Please make sure address is 100% accurate (including buzzer code if applicable) at checkout. 


Red Wiggler Compost Worms (Reds / Eisenia Fetida) for indoor and outdoor raising.

Reds can tolerate a wide variety of temperatures between 0 and 35 degrees celsius but thrive in temperatures above 20 degrees celsius.

They are the cousin to the European Nightcrawler (Eisenia Hortensis) but are generally smaller. They can co-exist with other worm species.
