Dendrobaena veneta (Eisenia hortensis) worms close up
Firstly, I would like to say that I really enjoyed reading your book. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in getting into the worm farming business.
I have a question in regards to the earthworm species that you are using - in your case Eisenia fetida. Here in the UK Eisenia fetida is often confused with Dendrobaena veneta and unfortunately both are marketed as 'Tiger worms' and are sold as as mixture of the two. So my question is how do you make sure the earthworms you are using in your business are indeed Eisenia fetida (any specific characteristics to distinguish them from other species)? In addition, where did you originally acquire the Eisenia fetida from? I appreciate your time.
