Hi Dermy, welcome to Vermicomposters! I need to learn from your experiences on establishing an isopod composter so the arthropods are happy.

Hi Dermy, thanks for the welcome to isopod group. I have a growing colony of pillbugs and sow bugs that seem happy atop my worm bedding of shredded semi-composted sycamore leaves. They love boiled peanut shells! Please tell me more about dermestids. Did a googoo search and looks like they are the insect form of vultures? Am reseaching other critters to possibly have different bins other than just vermi+pods.

Wow! Sorry people i didnt know about this spot.

joseph- They work faster as the colony grows bigger, i found melons are a great population booster, esp. during spring and fall.

lol dermestids wat a spot to talk about those! i can shoot u a link to a site where you can join and ask dermy questions, if you like. hmm peanuts i haven't aten those in ages! ha vermi-pod, maybe i could make a slug-pod system thanks for the idea Jay!
