Worm Attractant

Many gardeners and fishermen ask us about earth worms, how much for how many. Gardeners want some to help their soil, all fine and understandable. But we try to talk them into fixing their soil first. If the soil isn't any good, they worms leave. So we encourage people to get the attractant for this purpose. It helps bring worms to the soil and encouraged them to breed in the area by providing an environment they like.

This is how to start off with our Worm Attractant mix.


Step one
Step one
A bag of 25lt Worm Attractant is designed for a bout 1m2. So measure out the are. I've just used a rough guide with these bricks. In a garden environment you probably wouldn't use them, if you're looking for an area to breed worms for bait, this is probably what you're after.

Step two
After the area has been measured out remove the turf. As you can see this isn't the best soil, but a good test of our Worm Attractant.
Step Three
Step Three
Mix the Worm Attractant into the top 100-150mm, 4-6", and wet down well with water, if you have Worm Juice it's best to use a 1:5 Juice/Water mix. Then cover with a mulch. Keep moist and wait, about 4-6 weeks in unfavorable conditions. When expanding the area simply put the mulch out 150mm, 6', at a time around the area every 2-3 weeks. While this method is slow, it is relatively cheap to do.
