The average family generates 7kg (15lbs) of food waste a week, just for reference.
You can compost a lot more in Subpod than in other worm farm systems.
No it shouldn’t. Subpod’s built-in ventilation panels have small holes that keep out bugs, pests and rodents, whilst allowing air to flow in. Just make sure the ‘worm holes’ in the sides of the Subpod are covered with soil so nothing can sneak in.
Ants are attracted to dry conditions, so this is usually an indicator that your Subpod is too dry.
To keep the worms happy while you’re away, buy a pumpkin (or use one that is starting to rot), cut it in half and lay the open sides face down on the top of the bedding of the Subpod.
Fruit flies can enter Subpod when you are adding your food waste. They can also get into the system before your food scraps are added to Subpod if there’s a loose lid.
It is important to maintain the level of waste in the lower trays of the wormery as the waste is reducing.
It allows you to compost directly in your garden allowing the worms and microbes to distribute nutrients into the soil.
