Worm Shortage Updates
Feburary 1st, 2021
What a difference a year makes! I checked 18 dealers for red wiggler prices and the ones that aren’t out of stock have doubled their prices. Wholesale in bulk is as high as last year’s retail prices. 2021 could be an expensive gardening year.
Some online sellers are selling “combined stock” a mix of red wigglers (Eisenia fetidas) and nightcrawlers and sometimes Georgia (Alabama) Jumpers. That combo keeps the price down, but the quality of composting goes down. We’ve been working hard to build up our stock and we’ll start selling ours on February 27for $25 per half pound and $49 per pound. We will not be selling ours in bulk.
For bulk orders we’ll act as a consolidator by collecting orders and placing them all at one time to one address. That should get the price down to around $165 for 5 pounds. Let me know if you’re interested.
