Can worms feed on dog poop and survive a cold winter?

by Stephan

Hello,

compost worms (red wigglers: "Eisenia fetida" are quite tough creatures and can handle cold temperatures as low as 5 degrees Celsius / 41 degrees Fahrenheit in their living environment which acts as an additional barrier against the cold weather that is surrounding the worm bin. There are quite a few ways you can protect worms inside a bin against hot weather as well as against the cold.

You could for example place your bin for the cold month of the year somewhere indoors or cover it with heavy blankets or old carpets. Another effective method we developed wast to put the complete worm farm inside a protective polystyrene box that has great insulating capabilities and is easy and inexpensive to build.

Have a look at the article "worm farm preparation for winter that you can find on my website. The URL is

I trust this information will help you. I wish you all the best for your worm composting project.

Kind regards and God's blessings for you and your family!
