Exporting / Importing composting worms?!

by Stephan
(Cape Town and Radevormwald)


I am a new vegetable gardening enthusiast in the Kingdom of Bahrain
who is interested
in worm composting to complement the soil in the elevated garden beds I
installed at my home. It's a fun project I will use to teach my kids (and
myself!) a little about growing organic vegetables at home.

I have searched everywhere in the Kingdom of Bahrain for composting worms,
composting bins and composting accessories but I found nothing until now. I
am starting to worry the reason for such lack of vermicomposting products
may be due to an import restriction. Do you know if composting worms can be
harmful to the environment?

Can you ship composting worms to the Kingdom of Bahrain? If so, do you
think the worms will arrive alive?




Composting worms are generally environmentally friendly and would most likely not become invasive in a country with a hot climate and a generally dry landscape.
The worms need a moist environment to live in which should have as well a lot of organic material in it that they can feed on.

Worms can be transported in special boxes where they can survive for several week in. So a transport with a plain would be possible.

All countries have their own import-, health- and environmental laws. So you would have to contact the authorities in your country and find out if you would be allowed to import compost worms and how you would have to go about it.

If you get a positive response and are keen to import worms and worm farms you are welcome to contact us for a quote.

Kind regards

RE exporting worms from Java
by: Stephan

Hello Sonny,

I am glad to hear that worm businesses in Java are doing well and are producing lots of worms.

The best way I see at this moment for you to find possible customers for your worms and worm castings would be if you would place an advert on our website which has more than 800 pages that could show your advert all at once and would give you a great chance to get recognized by possible clients.

This could be an advert just for your own business or for a group of businesses. We have a variety of advertising options on our site and if you are keen please let us know and we will send you our Advertising rates.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards and God bless

Need a solutions the worms
by: Sonny


My name's Sonny from west java - indonesia

At first, I'm so sorry about my english, sometimes I used a google translate to type for this comments.

I'm very interested to build this worms business, a lot of worms farmers in here especialy in java. Our area is perfect for the developped of worms cultivation.
The type of worms cultivation in here are Lumbricus Rubellus, African Night Crawler and Tiger

For your in info, more than 500 worms farmers local in our province (west java).
There are 5 province on Java island.
At least amount of their productions more than 5 ton per months and also we have a worms castings abundants.
The prices of the live worms in here IDR 70.000 to 100.000 per kg or (USD.6 to 8 per kg)
But, the conditions are not well. We are very difficult to sell the worms.

Because of it, I try to find a solution to sell out of the country through cooperation with other worms buyers feom other countries.

I have seen this website and very interesting to ask you about this matter. Probably you can help us or your suggestion how to sell the worms to other countries. Can we do that with your help?

I dont know about the export process, but I can collected the yield worms of their cultivation for the export process.

I hope this comment does not bother you and I apologize for it.
at least I have tried to share information to you and hope this can be open up my chances and other farmers to sell this worm cultivation yield for better and sustainable.

Thank you very much for your attention on this Leave Comment box.
I hope your business will going well for everytime.

Best regards
