I received my worms in the mail from a few hours away so they were not in the box very long. They were still wiggling and everything was still moist. I transferred them into a home I bought off the internet and some coco coir and dirt and kitchen scraps. I got them to tea for my garden plants, since their waste is very very good for the garden. I feed them only 2 times a month and water them once a week. I collect juice the day after watering (from the catch tray attached to my home for them) and dilute and put on my plants. They eat just about anything and love avocado, cake, melon rinds, oats, lettuce. They also like manure every once in a while but be careful where you get your manure from, some people de worm their animals and the residual De-wormer will usually kill them, so if it is not yours or your friends and you are absolutely sure they haven't been de-wormed them I wouldn't do it. Every few months I always put down a piece of plastic and pick out the worms and but the soil type of material in my garden as well. This will not only give your plants nutrients but will give your garden more worms, as the eggs will travel into your soil and grow to be big worms. So my recommendation is if you have a garden, red wrigglers are a must!
