What to do if I can't attend to my worm farm for a longer period of time?

by John
(South Africa)

Hi Stephan, another question please - what does one do when one goes away and there is no one at home who can take care of the worms in the worm farm?


I thank you for your advise in advance.


Answer:

Hello John,

that will be no problem for the worms. You can stay away for several weeks and leave your Pet poop processor or any other worm farm unattended and your worms will still be fine when you return home.

The only thing you have to do before you leave your home and worm farm for a longer period of time is to prepare the worm farm properly for the time you won't be able to attend to it.

Have a look at the following article which will give you the information you are looking for.

Follow the instructions given on this page and you can enjoy your holiday or business trip while your worms are recycling your dogs poop and or other organic materials you offer them as food.

Kind regards

What can we do with the dog poop from our dog care centre?
by: John

Hello and thank you for your quick response.

I help at a dog centre too. It produces a lot of poop as you can imagine. What could we do there to use the dog poop to our benefit instead of dumping it?

Answer:

Hi John,

I suggest you use one or several big worm farms to recycle the dog poop at the dog centre and than sell the finished fertilizer (worm poop) as organic fertilizer for ornamental plants and lawns. Worm castings are an excellent natural plant food and beat any commercially available compost.

You can store it in plastic bags and sell in your shop.


Kind regards

Stephan
