I understand that there are many types of compost worms. Could you refer me to a good book or website with details on all various types of compost worms?

Re: Kinds of worms and compost worms

Hello Gregory, while it is true that there are thousands of different kinds of earthworms roaming the planet there is actually only a handful of worm types that are useful for commercial worm composting.

The most popular types of all the composting worms are "Eisenia fetida" worms known as well as red wigglers and "Eisenia hortensis" or "Dendrobaena veneta" also known as European Nightcrawlers.

My preferred composting worm of choice is the Eisenia fetida worm as it is, in my opinion, the easiest worm species to keep in captivity

Below are a few articles about earthworms that can be found on my website.

Those articles should give you a little overview of earthworms and the kinds of compost worms that might be suitable for you.

If you are considering to get a worm farm going with Red wiggler worms I suggest you consider purchasing a copy of my book "How to start a profitable worm business on a shoestring budget" In the book I explain in detail how to raise and multiply Eisenia fetida composting worms.

In addition, you can find many more pages about keeping and raising compost worms on my website.

I trust this will help you.


Kind regards
