To many worms in my worm bin?

by Bernie

Question?:


My wormfarm is full of thriving red wriggler worms.... I think I need to re house some as its just a mass of worms... can I put these worms in the garden or will they die ?? If not what do I do when there is just TOO MANY worms???

Answer!:

Hello Bernie, it's great to hear that your worm farm is doing so well. Your question about an overpopulated worm bin is one I hear quite often from concerned worm composting enthusiasts.

The good news is that it is not really a big problem for your worms. Once they multiplied to a certain density inside any worm farm they will slow down their reproduction and maintain the population level inside their bin.

If you want you can either remove a fair amount of worms from your worm farm and start an additional bin with them or add them to your garden. But remember your compost worms need always a moist environment to survive. So you have to make sure that the parts of the garden that you want to place them will never dry out completely.

I hope this information helps a little. I will write an detailed article about this subject in the near future and will publish it here on this site. So come back for a return visit to learn more about worms and their population levels inside confined spaces.

Kind regards and happy worming
