Worms love old cardboard and newspapers

Compost worms ready for some cardboard

Compost worms love cardboard. They are really not picky when it comes to food and can virtually recycle more than 50% of all the house but some of the best materials that you can add to a worm bin are old corrugated cardboard boxes, newspapers as well as all those unwanted advertising flyers you find regularly in your post box.


Especially corrugated cardboard is an excellent material to feed to your worms.

It is quite nutritious and because it can store moisture quite well and allows worms crawl into the holes of the cardboard it protects them as well for quite a while against light and drying out in case the bedding becomes a little to dry.

So whenever you have some old cardboard feed it to your worms instead of throwing it into the trash.

Have a look at our facebook page at the video that shows you how worms hide inside old cardboard boxes.

Have a great day and happy worming
