Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
Does anyone have a mature bin with both species in it? I have tried it a couple times over the years, but it always seems that the EF out-compete the EH and in a few months there are very few EF left.
Oops, i meant very few EH left.
I have both species in my VB24 flow-thru bin. The EH tend to hang down in the lower regions where it is more moist and they are fat & sassy
How long has that bin been in operation? In other words, is the population of EH stable?
And since you mentioned it, how do you harvest the VB24 flow-thru bin? Is there a grate on the bottom and some sort of 'scraper' mechanism? I've seen photos of it, but they are all photos of the outside. Or maybe you can direct me to a site that shows photos of the inside of an empty bin.
The VBs use parallel grating. I used metal electr. conduit.
I noticed the EH in my box yesterday, in fact. I didn't realize there was more than one in there until I found this forum and started reading. My prior integrations with night crawlers and earth worms contained results similar to yours. The red wigglers outdo everything.
