Worm eggs

These worm cocoons (or eggs) were taken from a worm raising box. Notice the yellow cocoons, some of them almost resemble lemons. They have been laid on cardboard, you can also notice seedlings springing up in the worm bin.

  • Compost worm eggs are actually cocoons or egg cases that contain roughly 5 to 12 actual eggs.
  • When egg cocoons are first laid they're a pale yellow color. As the eggs mature they change to a darker color.
