What’s The Best Way To Ship Worms?

Now that I’ll be moving my garden and life out to LA, I think that I’ve gotten this worm composting thing down.

It’s been almost a week since I’ve started using The Worm Factory 360 and it’s the most lively that any of my worms have been. That’s not saying much because my worms have mostly wound up dead after a few days.

The fact that the worms are doing well is all peaches and cream, but I need to figure out how to get the worms out there as well. Getting the bin out there will be easy enough, but the worms could prove to be tricky.

I could very well just trash the worms and buy a new set when I arrive in LA, but that would be wasteful considering that I just got these worms and they are doing so well.

Since my flight to LA is in the evening, I was planning on scooping up the worms before heading out the airport and putting them in a large coffee container for the flight.

Do you think this will work? What are your suggestions for shipping the worms?
