How much will 1,000 composting worms create for me?
1,000 count of Red composting worms can create between 8 and 16 ounces of compost per month. These worms double in population every three months, so as your worm population grows, the amount of castings that they can create will grow as well. A year from introducing your 1,000 composting worms into your bin, you should have 16,000 composting worms, which will create 8-16 + pounds of compost per year!
