# Compost worm

### From Toadwater Guide

Compost worms can be found in pepper, tomato, radish, strawberry, pumpkin, and industrial hemp crops. Each worm is equivalent to 10 pieces of poo for fertilization, but compost worms can not be mixed with other typs of fertilizer.

A worm can also be used to attract a bird from its birdhouse into your inventory.

They reduce your health by 1 if you eat them! Death by compost worms will cause the same losses as a regular death.

Another way to get compost worms is by digging. The odds of digging up a compost worm are the greatest (100%) during the first minute of each metric hour (see Metric time) according to the Toadwater server. Each minute after that reduces the odds like so:

- 1 out of 1 chance - 1st minute
- 1 out of 2 chance - 2nd minute
- 1 out of 3 chance - 3rd minute
- 1 out of 75 chance - 75th minute...
