Do any formum contributors know a supplier who sells true redworms. Most I've come across tend just to do dendrabaena either on their own or in a mixture supposedly containing a few reds (although I couldn't find them)

Cheers

hi neil
the best bet is to find a friendly farmer with a good muck heap
& collect your own the heaps i use i can get probaly 500 redworms
out of 2 buckets of muck & what muck &worms that are left over from the 2 buckets goes into my own wormery,
it saves me a bomb

tight lines.

Thanks guys
That web search opened a real can of worms. Wonder if you can use dog tapeworms on the hook?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't the worms from a muck heap be brandlings? Never tried to use these chopped, but they exude a nasty foul smelling liquid when you hook them.

If you find an old, rotted manure heap alongside a stables you'll find plenty of true redworms.
Dig deep into the middle where it should be warm and they'll be there. Brandlings tend to be nearer the surface if anywhere but prefer compost heaps rather than horse/stable muck.
