Eisenia fetida: is a species of worm that lives inside the top 10 inches of the soil and is found in many regions of the world. This type of worm also known as Red Worms, for their reddish color, plays a huge role in fertilizing your soil and consuming waste products. This specific species of Red Worms can consume up to ½ of their body weight of organic materials. Red Worms consume leaves, grass, decayed plants but are not limited to these. Red Worms also have another key feature. The castings that Red Worms leave behind are several times higher in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium than normal soil. Another affect that Red Worms have on the soil is aeration. While the Red Worms are searching for food they are leaving tunnels behind them turning and mixing the soil which allows the soil to drain better, reduce erosion, reduce the amount of water needed, and can help resist from the soil compacting.
