Re: Worms are decreasing/dying

What a waste of space. Why do they wasted their time, even if I wanted one I would not buy from a spammer.🤬

Re: Worms are decreasing/dying

Sorry a few more questions, Have you noticed an increase in the number of worms leaving the bin? Have you noticed any bad smells coming from your bin?

Re: Worms are decreasing/dying

Hi, could you please provide a bit more info.
Are you saying your worm bin is made up of two trays/boxes? Is it diy storage box bin or a purchased stacking bin? Where do you keep your bin, inside or out? Have you only harvested casting once in three years? Are the “baby” worms pure white in colour?

Re: 6ish Weeks in, what do I do now?

Maybe half to a cupful every few days. Did you come across the four “corner feeding technique” when you were reading the forum? This will help reduce the risk of over feeding. The biggest danger is over feeding particularly with an immature bin. Remember worms will readily eat bedding, I have one bi...

Re: 6ish Weeks in, what do I do now?

Chopping them up small with a knife or kitchen scissors (£2 from one of the High Street budget shops) which is the way I do it.
Another way is to pop the food scraps into the microwave for a minute or two, this will soften them and make it easier for the microbes and the worms to eat.

Re: 6ish Weeks in, what do I do now?

Hi Red, welcome to the world of worms. The colder weather at this time of year means things move much slower in the worm world. From the info you have provided you are doing a great job for your worms. In the summer I was feeding two or three litres of food per day between my 6 or 7 worm bins at the...

Re: Another newbie wormer

Hi Sal, good to hear things are going well. Paper wet or dry is a carbon (brown) bedding however worms will use it as if there is nothing else.
Keep up the good work.

I think you should reply “on topic” and not use generalisation to creep in via the back door loop-hole

Re: Another newbie wormer

Hi Sal, every thing sounds great. Is your new bin based on three storage boxes? If you have been reading the forum you will have seen the advice on dealing with escapees. We have just woken to the first hard frost of the winter so it’s important to protect your bin from the cold and rain, I use a co...

Re: ❓Used water filter contents? Can it be used in worm bedding?

Thanks Kev for the update. I was reading the other day that they contain activated charcoal therefore they should be good for the worms and the garden. If anybody can add some more info on this it would be good.
