Worms are invaluable aerators of garden soil. They turn organic matter into rich compost and help break up soil that would otherwise become too compacted to support healthy plants. There are even some worms that attack garden pests underground, thus eliminating a problem before it ever becomes visible. Buy some specialized worms and dump them in the garden. Or enrich the soil, forego pesticides, start planting and the worms will find you. Whether you import your worms or encourage the native earthworms to proliferate, they will soon be hard at work improving the soil and the health of the garden.
Red Wigglers - Worms known as red wigglers are the favorite of vermiculturists who dump a pound or two of the small active worms in the compost bin right along with the coffee grounds. Each worm can consume about a half pound of compostable food waste a day. Red wigglers like the warm surface areas of soil so they are also referred to as litter dwellers and may be called compost worms or manure worms. They will produce rich, abundant worm poop when they are allowed to munch away in the top few inches of soil or in a well-stocked compost bin in the dark. Get a supply of them from a reputable dealer and ask for red wigglers, Eisenia fetida, to get the right worms.
