Ok, since yall get me on the topic of wormy things...
I've got a stacked worm bin. Two rubbermaid bins with holes in the bottom.
I've finally gotten around to switching the bins. I also bought some
coir to use. Just wondering, is coir the only thing I need to use to
keep the fly level down, or do I have to shred paper over the coir?
Damn, I forgot to add the eggshells. That's the thing about the coir as
opposed to the paper. The paper is easier to pick up to put something
I've also heard that with the stacked bins, some worms never make it up
to the next bin. I wonder what percentage that is. I pushed the
contents in the lower bin over to one side, so that it would bunch up
and be touching the bottom of the upper bin.
Just gotta go put the eggshells in.
Segmentedly yours, doofy.
They just live in my yard. Everywhere.
I could probably make money harvesting the worm castings I see on top
the soil during spring and fall weather. ;-)
When I want to harvest any for fishing bait, I just put down a piece of
old carpet and wet it down... They come to the surface and are right
Hm. I wonder if topping your vermiculture bins with some carpeting might
help with your fly problem??? Seriously?
It would have to be an exactly fitting piece of carpet. Otherwise
they'd crawl in around the edges.
I think the coir makes a much more impervious barrier, but its also hard
to move around to put new stuff into.
That is why I suggested it. Carpet would be easier. :-)
You'd just have to make sure tho' that it caused no suffocation problems.
The worms around here never crawl on top of the carpet. Might not really
have to be form fit?
But, I've never maintained worm bins. Just to be totally honest.
Just mealworm bins for pet and wildlife feed.
Those are easier.
