Which worms are best for composting?

Our composting worms are mixture of species (mainly reds and dendras) selected for their composting ability.

What foods do worms prefer in a compost bin?

Your wormery composter is particularly suitable for peelings and leftovers of fruit and vegetables, such as potato peels, apple cores, green tops of vegetables, etc.

Can we leave the Subpod if we go away on holidays?

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.

Why have I got Fruit Flies in my 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.

How do I keep ants out of the Subpod?

Ants are attracted to dry conditions, so this is usually an indicator that your Subpod is too dry.

Does Subpod attract pests and rodents?

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.

Do you have to reintroduce new worms after you empty the compost?

When you empty your castings and compost, the worms will not be with the castings, but where the food is, on the other side of the Subpod divider.
