Esienia Fetida, also known as Red Wigglers and Redworms, are popular, commercially grown varieties of the more common dew and earthworms. Redworms are the smallest variety, usually measuring between 1½" and 2½" in length.
Esienia Fetida are the optimum worm for vermicomposting, a process where worms eat and breakdown compostable yard and kitchen waste. They are also ideal bait worms for trout and panfish. Redworms are used to feed small herps, aquarium and small pond fish. In fact, many bird owners have chosen redworms to supplement traditional seed-based diets.

Note: As with any species, do not feed an exclusive diet of only one insect. In the wild, all animals that feed on insects will eat 50 or more varieties, giving the animal a varied vitamin and mineral intake. As pet owners or breeders, we must approximate the feeding habits and the best way to do this is by feeding an exotic mix of bugs.
