Stumbled upon your site when I was looking for a greener way to rid my yard of dog waste.
At first I found information on how to create a smaller version of a septic tank, basically adding a chemical starter and drainage holes into a partially-buried plastic bin (yikes).
Glad I ran across your site! I'm starting with a few earthworms. The local tackle shop has the red wigglers as well, but I was trying to remember which one on the spot. So hopefully these work for now, but can always go back later. Not looking to make money from it, just looking for a way to leave less of a footprint and still be able to enjoy the backyard this summer. Thanks!
great to hear that you are starting a worm farm. The red wigglers are the perfect worm for recycling kitchen- garden- and dog waste. Their scientific name is "Eisenia fetida". They are prolific breeders and will multiply rapidly when you follow the instructions. In captivity they can eat half their body weight per day!
If you go to the site map of www.worm-compposting-help.com you will find lots of helpful articles about recycling with earthworms. You are always welcome to ask additional questions about the subject.
I wish you all the best with your new worm farm and blessings for you and your family!
