How many worms can I raise in my worm bins?
by Zackery Friedbauer
Hello, I recently set up 3 worm bins, each made from an 8 foot satellite dish laid on top of old truck tires.
I have around 150 square feet of surface area between the 3 and was wondering how many european nightcrawlers I could raise in this set up.
Bedding is goat poop and hay mix, feed is composted cow poop.
your satellite dish worm farms sound amazing. Would love to see a picture of them. They really sound like a good idea and a great way to make use of old broken satellite dishes :-)!
Your bedding and food solutions for the worms should keep the worms happy too.
When it comes to worm population there are always some factors to consider, like the environmental conditions inside and around the worm farm. With European night crawlers you must as well find ways to prevent them from leaving at night which can happen from time to time. They got their name for a reason :-)!
I think you could increase your worm herd in your worm farms to about 120000 to 140000 worms once your farms are fully established.
I wish you all the best for your worm composting project.
