Red Wiggler worms for Vermicomposting

Vermicomposting at home does a lot of wonders for your garden.  Aside from the organic fertilizer that you can get out of it, it also won’t require a lot of time and money from you.  And what better way to do this than by doing it with the most recommended composting worms – Red Wiggler worms!

Going for Homemade Compost Bin

You have two options: to do it yourself or to buy in the market. Commercial worm composting system is undoubtedly good especially when used with red wiggler worms. Only, you will have to sacrifice a large amount especially if you are to buy the bigger bin. Second option is to go for homemade bins. You won’t have to empty your wallet but you do have to commit some of your time to do it. You can do it your way, design it if you want to and it won’t lessen its effectiveness.

Tips in Constructing a Homemade Compost Tumbler

Before you buy or make your red worm composting system, think about the size and the amount of organic scraps and amount of red worms that you would want to have. The amount of these materials is proportional to the size of the bin. If you want to just keep it in the kitchen sink, then a garbage can will already do. You can utilize Rubbermaid boxes to start with your composting bin.

On Situating your Worm Composting Bin

Worms need a good home too. Always maintain a temperature that is not too cold but not too hot. A moist environment is the best for the composting worms. Choose an area that cannot be reached by your kids or your pets because once the bin is disturbed, unnecessary results may arise.

Once you get started, you will never want to stop. Remember that a good home contributes to the wellness of its household. Your worm composting bin may eventually define the success of your vermicomposting.
