    Hey Sandie Anne

    I would use the Sterlite 10 gal that you mention in one of your posts. I also found it at WalMart. I am shredding paper now so I will be ready by July 4th!

    I started my worms bin (2000 worms) about 8 months ago. Last month, I harvested my bin. I think I got more worms than when I start, but I didn’t weigh them. Also, I saw a lot of cocoons. I took all the worms (and cocoons as much as I can) out of the old bin, put in the new bedding. Two days later, I when to look at the bin. I was chock because all my worms are melting. I was very sad, upset and very mad at myself. I knew that I did something wrong. When I opened the lid, I felt the heat came out. It might be from the ripen mangoes skin (a lot of them). I think it gave too much acid into the bin and kill all of them.

    Luckily that I still have the compost that I harvested from the bin and still had some cocoons in there. So, I created the new bin very carefully. I checked this morning to see that I have some luck. I saw some white creatures. I read your articles and for sure they are pot worms. I saw nothing but pot worms. Please advise. Do you think that I still have baby red worms in the bin? I’m sure I have a lot when I harvested.

    My website hasn’t run yet. It’s still under construction. I’m still new with this field, but I’m learning. I will bookmark your site and will come to visit again. You share a lot of informative articles. Thank your for sharing your knowledge.

    I know that I’m late for the free worms, but I still want to share my bad experience to others. Therefore, nobody will make the same mistake as I did.

    Wish me luck for this new bin.

    Thank for let me share my story.

    Hi Emy,

    I am sorry to hear about your bad experience. Hopefully your story will help others not to make the same mistake. I have put mango skins in the worm bin but only one at a time and it worked out fine. Maybe it was just too many mangoes.

    My first worm bin was a failure because I put in too much food and it became a soggy, fruit fly filled mess. I think it is always better to err on the side of not giving enough food because the worms will eat the newspaper bedding. Then add a little more at a time to see how they handle it. I learned this from my experience.

    Good luck with your new bin! Where are you located?

    Hi Emy,

    Sorry I missed your questions. Pot worms can seemingly take over. I think I would try to get some of them out of the worm bin. I would think that you have cocoons in there but they will take some time to hatch. I always miss cocoons when I harvest my worm bin. What kind of bedding are you using?

    I’m hoping that you can help me.

    Doctor/Professor Jesse Herbert of Southern Vermont College teaches an Environmental Studies class. Our class will be involved with community
    projects that help the enviroment. I’m working on creating compost
    bins. A total of 6 for the community. But, I learned that red worms
    can be very expensive.

    I read your article above. May I ask for your assistance.
    Can we get red wigglers/worms for our project?

    Please. Pretty please!

    Thank you
    Maria

    Hi Maria,

    I would be happy to send you some free worms if you pay the postage. Please understand that these worms aren’t used in compost bins. In a proper compost bin the heat would kill them. They are used in their own composting system. Please read more on my website about worm composting. I have lots of interesting information. You could start with Making a Cheap and Easy Worm Bin. It is amazing how worms can transform shredded newspaper, food scraps and cardboard into rich, crumbly, black worm compost. Please post here to let me know if you are interested.

    Good Luck!
