Hello,

I have your book "How to start a profitable worm business on a shoestring budget" and am implementing most of your ideas.

Got my first big order for 10 pounds of worms. They will go by mail across the USA from Virginia to Missouri.

How big a box, how much bedding, etc to make sure they get there safely?
Thanks so much! I have collected 5 pounds today and hope to mail on Monday. If you can get right back to me I would appreciate it.

Dan

Answer:

Hi Dan,

glad to hear that you got the book and that you got your first good order.

For 10 pounds of worms I suggest you use a box or boxes that can hold about 160 Liter /43 gallons of bedding.

Keeping in mind that the box should not be to high and that they still should be manageable by a single person I suggest a box not higher than 15 inches. You might consider using several boxes, ie. 4, 6 or 8.

We use for bigger orders fish boxes that are normally used for storing big Tuna. They come in different sizes and can usually hold a significant amount of worms.

Go to your supplier and see what he has available.


Hope that helps.

Wish you many more orders and that your worm farming business may prosper

Kind regards
