It is important to maintain the level of waste in the lower trays of the wormery as the waste is reducing.
Worms breathe through their skin which must remain moist to absorb oxygen from the air.
Worms are hermaphrodite which means they have both male and female reproductive cells. However, it still takes two to tango… if you know what I mean!
The great thing about a tray system wormery is that a: It's off the floor so very unlikely to be attacked by rodents and B: Worms compost waste as you add it so they really help to neutralise the odours. We have had no problems with rodents with Urbalive or other tray system worm composters.
Our composting worms are mixture of species (mainly reds and dendras) selected for their composting ability
The Urbalive Worm Composter is a home wormery kit that can be used indoors or outdoors for composting kitchen waste with the red worms. The perfect wormery for households, classrooms or offices.
