I'm still puzzled about BSF larvae and I really don't have any way to test what I;'m doing since, once it's installed, changing it will be very difficult, not to mentino expensive. Like most people, I don't have enough time or money as it is, so putting several thousand dollar worth of "infrastructure" in, only to have it fail to work, is not a good option.
I am looking forward to contributing what I learn here (and anywhere else it might be useful).
Reason for me using peat moss is, what ever I feed my wiggly worms, will eventually go into my vegetable garden, and a few wild flowers. Just think if you used newspaper, think of the ink, these sweet worms would have in their diet. Not mine, mine eat organic fruits, vegetables and the flowers from my chamomile tea :)
I do have trays at the bottom of my bins, because holes were drilled there as well.
Soon I will use the healthy waste that the worms create outdoors.
I like your website Joseph, as it has a plethora of useful information.
Thanks for the welcome. I'm just now reading about vermicomposting and trying to leard what is best for our hot summer weather here in the southern half of Louisiana. I just finished reading, "The Best Place for Garbage" by Sandra Wiese and I'll probably will have lots of questions later on. I've already learned a lot by reading what you folks have posted.
I noticed that the watermelon didn't last too long. They do love it. I'm in the process of seeing if the worms like cucumbers as much as watermelon. I have cucumbers that are too large to eat and I'm freezing them and when thawed, I'll feed them to the worms and monitor the progress. Great to hear from you.
Thanks Joseph! I have been surfing through this site and have found many helpful ideas. I started a little over a year ago with 150 worms purchased at the local tackle shop. I now have 4 bins and approx 4000 worms. I really need a larger, more efficient system and have seen many great FT systems here. I am beginning to have a hard time keeping up with the amount of food scraps they want to eat!
Thank you... I found this site as a side-product of a side-product of other research lol... and i found it quite informative with an array of interesting facts and people. After browsing some of the archives for like three days (with so many facts to absorb) I decided signing up was a must lol
Thank you for welcome yesterday Joseph .
This site as the most information I have found on Looking after worms.
I look forward to learning from the experience that a lot of your members have gained over the years of Vermicomposting.
