Re: Help! I don't know what the white bugs in my worm bin are

Hello Sissel,

thank you for your good question. Luckily there is no need to worry as the little white creatures though difficult to see in the picture you sent us are most certainly "Springtails". Springtails are common in many worm farms around the world and are harmless. They are even useful inhabitants in worm bins and I suggest you just leave them be.

Over time you may encounter a few critters that will visit your worm bin.

For some more information about springtails and other creatures you might find in a worm bin, I suggest you have a look at the URL below, which can be found on my website. It will give you more information about the animals that might visit or even live inside a worm bin.

Wishing you and your family a blessed day.

Kind regards
