Latest news

Our use of plastics and the environment

Over the years of supplying worms and other products we have had to use plastic containers etc, worms and damp bedding in paper/cardboard containers do not work! we have sourced high grade tubs to make the recycling by customers as easy as possible, as time goes on other less friendly plastics have been used, particularly polypropylene bags (the white woven ones) and packaging tape, we have always looked for alternatives and now think we have found them. we have all been horrified by David Attenboroughs Blue Planet series showing what happens to some of this waste particularly in our oceans, it is no good being upset by these things without doing something about it, therefore as of 2018 you will find that the polybags will disappear and be replaced by hessian (still struggling to find an alternative!) and the plastic box tape will be replaced by paper tape (done and dusted) both of these are biodegradable, not so easy to use but kinder to the planet! I am sure you will understand this move.

Trading Standards Approval

We are pleased to announce that Worms Direct is now approved by Trading Standards, this involved site visits and rigorous checks into our business, including weights and measures, customer satisfaction, how we deal with any problems etc etc. we believe we are the only company in this industry to be approved in this way and to be a member of the "Buy with confidence" scheme.

Ground baits, pellets etc.

To supplement supplies of worms to Anglers, we now stock Sensas baits on a collection only basis. Take a look at our collection prices.

Live Bluebottle casters

These are white maggots fully turned to casters, in warm conditions they will hatch into flies. Previously we have supplied them at a late stage of development so the customer has to wait only a few days for the flies to hatch, this involved us storing them for some time to get them to this stage, it seems that this period of storage sometimes causes the hatch rate to be a lot lower than we would hope for, therefore we now send them out at an earlier stage, it may be a week or more before they will hatch but the hatch rate will be much improved. If after delivery, storing the casters in a refrigerator will again cause the hatch rate to fall.
Casters are the non moving pupae stage of the larvae (maggot) These are not suitable for fishing.
