Funny creatures in my worm farm

by Norma
(Africa)

Hello ,


I had me worm now for a few weeks. A few days ago I added some Watermelon rind to the farm and found today that there are lots of small round critters on the watermelon. Are they dangerous for my worms? Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards

Norma


Answer:

Hello Norma.

The creatures you mentioned sound like mites. They are not a problem for your worms as long as they don't multiply to much.

Why don't you send us a picture so I could 100 % positively identify the creatures. You can go to my website

www.worm-composting-help.com

for more information. If you have a look at the site map you should find an article about other creatures that can be found in worm farms.

This should assist you in identifying the critters you found in your worm farm.

For further questions or information you can fill in one of the interactive forms you can find at the bottom of most pages of my website and we will respond with an answer asap.



Kind regards and all the best for your worm composting project.
