Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
I will say that previously the bedding used in my wormeries was from a collection of Autumn leaves. Although leaves suited the worms I found that there was a continuing build up of slugs, due to having collected the leaves from earth beneath the trees? . I would later see upon inspection, clusters of slugs eggs so a bigger population was then likely!
Perhaps leaves from a paved/concreted area would get over this problem? (Any comments?)
Hessian sacking I found worked well if moistened but did not last due to rotting away so I now I re-cycle the chads from my cross-cut shredder ( which give the worms a puzzle and then some reading matter).
After my latest modification to increase the ventilation I find that it is not necessary to wet or moisten the chads as they soon become damp.
Yes I am remiss in not providing photos of my attempts so far, I have the remedy...it is on the To Do List, but please do not hold your breath!
On a cheerful note I now have no problems, so far, with either slugs or mice in this latest venture...Hooray!
