What you can do about ants in a worm bin!
by Stephan Kloppert

For many people that have a worm farm ants can become a problem rather sooner than later. The fear that ants will feed on worms and might destroy the herd is however largely untrue. Most species of ants are actually more after some of the food sources that can be found in a worm farm and are in this way competing with the worms for their food. In most circumstances there will however be more than enough organic materials to support both ants and worms. Nevertheless if you have already ants in your bin and want to get rid of them or want to keep out ants of your worm farm have a look at my article
which will show you a fool proof method to prevent ants from entering your worm farm and keeping them out for good.
Kind regards and happy worming :-)
