Worms for fishing – Fresh and Wriggly Live Bait

Dendrobaena worms are rapidly being recognised as the worm to use as live fishing bait. Fishermen can appreciate their hardiness as they are tougher that any other worm and can survive longer even in the coldest of waters.

The Dendrobaena worm is light-sensitive and wiggles around frantically, thus attracting fish and landing you your day’s catch. 100% of fishing enjoyment guaranteed.

Dendrobaena Worms as Live Bait for Fishing

Always keep worms cool and away from strong heat.

If storing in a container for longer than a few days, you must make sure they are kept moist and stored at 40C.

If you wish to keep your worms happy and healthy, put them in a larger suitable container, and you can feed them kitchen scraps – a worm can eat anything that has lived and died.

Worm Composting

If you are interested in composting your everyday household waste then one of our worm compost bins would be most suitable. Made from wood they have been carefully designed by us to be most effective and suitable to our Dendrobaena worms needs. Our wormeries require no assembly. Because worms are always working, there should be virtually no odours as found in other composting bins.

The wormeries should be kept outside ideally as the airflow is increased. As worm activity is dependent on the temperature, you can take simple steps to ensure they are never too hot or too cold. For example in the hottest mid-summer sun you can move it next to a wall or shed where it is shaded therefore cooler. In extreme winter freezing conditions your wormery would be best put inside a garden shed or garage. Please be careful when lifting your wormery as soil is heavy.

Your compost bin requires 1kg of worms per cubic metre of soil (this is approx 1600 to 2000 worms).

Worm Composting with Dendrobaena Worms

Composting with worms increases soil fertility, improves the structure and drainage of soil whilst holding water and breaking up clays at the same time. This is every gardener’s secret ingredient to a healthy garden! Compost worms eat up to half their own body weight in waste – making them very efficient in producing organic compost.

What can Dendrobaena Worms Compost?

  • Anything that has lived and died
  • Vegetable peelings
  • Cooked vegetables
  • Vacuum dust
  • Pet hair
  • Lawn clippings
  • Animal waste
  • Inner tubes from toilet/kitchen rolls
  • Cardboard eggboxes

Just think of how much of that you would normally throw away instead of composting!

Packaging Worms

Composting requires 1kg of worms per cubic metre of soil (this is approx 1600 to 2000 worms). Just work out how many worms you need and place your order. It’s that easy and once you have made your initial purchase you don’t need to buy any more worms as they are prolific breeders and expand their numbers to suit conditions around them. Worms are a-sexual and can breed every couple of weeks, and without predators they can live for up to 15 years.

Allow one kilogram for each cubic metre of your compost heap or container. The more worms the faster they will covert your organic compost to a valuable fertiliser. Dendras are probably the best composting worm – they will eat over half their body weight each day.

Care Checklist

  • Once introduced to your compost bin, begin by feeding them small amounts of food until you establish how much food they are capable of eating.
  • Compost worms can eat anything that has lived and died.
  • Stay clear of acidic foods, e.g. citrus fruits, unless you plan to add a little lime mix every couple of weeks to prevent the waste becoming too acidic (worms no not like acidic conditions).
  • Keep your wormery moist, not wet, at all times.
  • In extreme heat move your wormery into an area of shade and if necessary cool the housing down with water.
  • Before going on holiday, ensure your wormery is working efficiently and if will be fine for up to a month.
