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 contains 1-5 baby worms (2.5 on average).
Red Wigglers cocoons ship when day time temperatures between Kitchener, ON and shipping destination are above 0°C. Shipments sent next business day standard with tracking! Pickup is always available when in stock.
250 cocoons ship with some new bedding (~1-2 lbs). Once they are received, the cocoons and bedding must be kept moist and in a warm area (above 20°C). Cocoons will hatch in 2-4 weeks but this varies based on temperature, moisture, and bedding conditions.
Raising worms from cocoon to adult takes time, some skill, and patience so it is recommended that beginners order worms along with cocoons.
