I am selling red wiggler worms (compost worms) and worm castings (fertilizer) to the continental US only.

(Sorry international folks, my worms don't have passports)

Current prices:

1 BTC = ~1000 worms

1 BTC = 5 pounds worm castings (pure worm castings, no dirt, should be used as fertilizer not direct potting mix!)Approx spreading rate for established lawns or gardens (10lbs/100 sq. feet) or can top-dress, etc.

Contact me here if you want to work out other arrangements. Bulk discount, etc.

If you need some guidance just google "worm composting"

Worms eat your garbage 24 hours a day and turn it into highly valuable fertilizer. Just think of it like having an organic mining rig in your backyard.

That's by far the best offer in the current Bitcoin economy...  Grin

Unfortunately I'm not in the US. Otherwise I would have ordered just out of curiosity. Cheesy

bumping this because there has been some interest and it is easier to harvest worms once (why most worm farms only ship once a week). If you haven't tried worm composting you should -- it's not smelly, worms double in population about every 8 weeks until they stabilize, and you can literally turn all your junk mail and food scraps into one of the highest nutrient soil amendments possible.

A little info on composting might help your sales. Do you have  a website?

Still around.

There's plenty of info online.  Do a search.  I've got an indoor population AND an outdoor one.  If you have specific questions which can't be answered by search, I can probably help answer them.  Smiley

Hi Edd:

I don't yet. This is a hobby for me, not a full fledged business and I have mostly just sold by CL and word-of-mouth to people in my neighborhood who wanted to vermicompost. If it ends up being profitable, I will get a website up with more info and pictures, etc. Hell, I might do that anyway.

Can I just put them in my backyard and see some benefits?

not particularly. compost worms ie; red wigglers don't burrow through the ground like earthworms. They live under loose decaying matter like the leaf layer in a forest or cow turds or piles of brush, etc. So they aren't usually used for aeration like earthworms could be. They are more purely for turning decaying matter into fertilizer quickly.

Some people have outdoor furrows in their gardens, etc but just throwing a few thousand on your lawn wouldn't do much good I don't think.

They will burrow somewhat and they will stay in a general area if they have food.  However, other animals could also be attracted to that area.  You would likely want to consider a container and keep it in the shade.

Nice.

If my compost bin wasn't already overflowing with wigglers, I'd be all over this.
