TIGER WORMS

Return to Previous Page
Description

Product Description

The Tiger worm (Brandling worm/ Manure Worm Eisenia fetida) is very good at the rapid processing of Organic waste into nutrient rich compost, we often get asked which type of worm is best for composting, in short the answer is probably a mixture of both dendrobaena worms and tiger worms as both types have a huge appetite and both species have a slight difference in ‘needs’ so combining both dendrobaena and tigers in the wormery (they only breed with their own species and live quite happily together) ensures the wormery works efficiently.

In summary, some websites advocate one species of worm over another – dendrobaena worms and tiger worms are BOTH very good composters so please be wary of this kind of advice.

To help you along, we have loads of hints and tips on our blog page. The link is at the bottom of the page.

    My worms arrived not only promptly and well packaged but alive and healthy and ready to start making me some lovely compost. They are currently eating some left over apple core and a banana skin. I love your information pages for the beginner worm keepers but wish there were more! I have placed a second order for more worms because they are so good value for money!

    Tiger worms and Dendrobaena worms arrived quickly as ordered, in two separate begs inside good protective package.

    All looked very healthy, as I incorporated them into the wormery.

    Your website is clear with good information, so I could decide what I needed easily. Good value.

    But I wish website had told me to”click on the relevant picture” to access the review section. As a Great grandma on a pc in the study, I don’t automatically know what I should do with I.T.

    As a ‘newby’ to worm farming I was not confident of a first attempt. I purchased mixed dendras and tiger worms, put them in with some garden compost, bedding and far too much food BUT they are doing fine, not only eating but, apparently, breeding!!
    Worms arrived promptly and very well packaged.
    First class service and quality. Recommended

    Thank you for your quick service with regard to the worms and your very helpful advice over the phone.
    They are now at work in the composter.

    No problems with ordering or delivery, the worms were healthy and have settled into my wormery with no problems. Thanks for a good product.

    The worms came very quickly in good condition and are now working away on my compost heap and seem very cheerful. I can pick them out from the Dendrobaena because of their stripes.

    I’ve used them for composting. They’re very happy in their new home.
    They were well packed and the instructions that came with them were great too. Shall be buying from you again.
    big thanks! !

    :

    The worms arrived a little later than expected (a day or two) due to the cm’s of snow that England isn’t quite used to dealing with yet 😉 However Yorkshire Worms obviously know what they are doing, as they were packaged really well. The worms were all alive, and very healthy. I put them straight into their new composting home and off they wriggled.

    I bought these a little over two weeks ago and I think they are doing well, as none have tried to escape, the ones I do see, when I open the box seem very active and healthy.

    I would definitely recommend Yorkshire Worms to any one wishing to purchase worms for whatever reason.

    Excellent! Promptly delivered and very well packed. The worms arrived in superb condition and I was able to sort them into batches to go into my separate compost bins. They were active and within an hour were well spread throughout the top layers of waste. A few days later the surface of the compost was already visibly processed and brandlings were much in evidence well into the heap.
