I don't have a supply of any type of worms needed for the vermicomposting in my area. But i do see couple of worms in my garden, some of them are red color but are very slim. Is there a way that i can use them. Need your guidance in this. Thanks

As long as they are worms, and not grubs, then they should be fine. Make sure that they do not have any legs before you put them into your compost. The larger the worm, the faster they compost, though. If you can't find any larger worm species, then any worm will do.
