Soldier fly maggots in my worm farm

by John

Hello.


I wonder if you can help me. It looks that soldier fly larva have
taken over my worm bin. It looks like a lot of the worms have died. Any
advice for dealing with this?

Kind regards

John


Answer:


Hello John,

I am sorry to hear that. The best thing to do is to remove as many of the soldier fly maggots as possible, and place them in a shallow tray to the sun.
Once they are dead you can feed them to your earthworms.

It is important to act early once you notice the BSF larva in your worm farm. The compost worms dislike them and usually flee towards the bottom of their bin where they often die.

If your worm farm has become soggy and smelly and you can hardly find any worms anymore it might sadly be best to start again.

A good worm farm for a 3 person household is usually the Midi Tower worm farm.


If you have further questions please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards

Stephan
