How to get rid of centipedes in a worm bin

Question:


Hello,

please tell me how to get rid of centipedes that have invaded my worm farm?


Answer:

Centipedes don't live in large quantities in worm bins but they can prey on worms. To get rid of them you will have to be quick and catch them immediately after you opened the lid of your worm bin.

They are quite quick and will run for cover in an instant once they feel threatened. When you see them grab them straightaway between your thumb and index finger and squeeze them hard.

This is usually sufficient to kill them and they will become worm food within a few days.

For more information about worm bin predators you might come across inside your worm farm have a look at the article I published about the subject. The URL is
