3 Tiered Worm Bin

  • Thread-topic: 3 Tiered Worm Bin

We have a 3 tiered bin, Can of Worms, and even when the third bin is all worm castings I still find lots of worms there. I empty the third bin into a large tupperware type container. As the top layer of the castings dries the worms move down and I take off several inches a day. I mound up and loosen the castings during this process. To speed-up things up I sometimes put a shop light over the bin and, as you all know, the little critters don't like light. I will try the mesh bag method. I use a lot of worm tea but am never sure what proportion to use with water.
