A breeder bin for compost worms

Kimberly asked an interesting question about worm breeder bins!


Question:

I'm almost finished reading your book, "How to start a profitable worm
business on a shoestring budget" It's been very helpful and has great
information. I've really enjoyed reading it. I do have a question tho about bin
size. I am building my breeder bins out of wood. Is there a minimum depth that
a breeder bin should be? also, what about outside dimensions? I'm a little
limited on space so I want to make them as compact as possible but at the same
time I don't want to overcrowd the worms where it would interfere with the reproducing.

Thanks so much
Best regards,
Kimberly

Answer:

Dear Kimberly,

thank you for your positive feedback and your interesting question. I am glad you enjoyed my book.

Let me answer your questions:

Is there a minimum depth that
a breeder bin should be?

Your breeder bins should definitely have a minimum depth of about 6 inches and be filled up with bedding to about 4 inches. (At these levels you need to take care that the bins don't get exposed to extreme temperatures (not to cold or to hot).

Your outside dimensions for a breeder bin that houses 500 Mature worms should cover an area of at least 1 Square foot.

This should keep your worms happy and productive.

I hope these answers are helpful to you Kimberly.

Just move forward I am sure you will be successful!


Kind regards and all the best

Stephan
