VermiPods™

Select a Size*

VermiPods™ are encapsulated earthworm eggs. Earthworms are a natural, living soil conditioner, aerator and living plow. Through their normal activities they loosen soil, boost nitrogen levels, and improve drainage. Worm castings are a wonderful fertilizer, rich in nutrients otherwise unavailable to plants. An earthworm produces its weight in castings daily.

Each VermiPod™ contains approx. 5-10 earthworm eggs coated with a layer of protective clay. Simply plant the VermiPods™ as you would any seed, and let nature take its course. The worms begin hatching in approx. 2-6 weeks depending on soil temperatures and over time will reproduce and continue to improve the soil. Encapsulated Earthworm Eggs or VermiPods™ make it convenient and easy to add these soil-transforming creatures to your garden. The earthworm eggs are first protected by covering the fragile eggs in a biodegradable, high-grade clay soil and then coated with beeswax to seal in the moisture. Plant these ready-to-hatch VermiPods™ just as you would any ordinary seed.

• Encapsulated earthworm eggs
• Approx. 600-800 worms in each package
• Plant these ready-to-hatch VermiPods™ just as you would any ordinary seed.
• VermiPods™ are a specially selected mixture of earthworm cocoons.
• The worms begin hatching in approx. 2-6 weeks depending on soil temperatures

Each species of earthworm contained in the VermiPods™ performs a distinct job. Some will burrow horizontally, while others will burrow vertically, some to a depth of 12 feet, working in every layer of your soil to keep it healthy.
