Worm Bin Composting Produces Superior Product Over Conventional Composting

Worm Bin Composting - Let's think about this a moment. Worm bin composting uses worms to do the composting. Therefore the temperatures in the bin must be able to sustain the life of the worm. These temperatures, ideally are between 68 and 72 degrees celsius. The worms can handle degrees below and above these temperatures but not without effecting the speed at which your worm bin composts. With temperatures reaching the extremes of freezing or 90 degrees celsius the worms will start to die. In a conventional compost bin the temperatures climb much higher than the ideal temperatures in your worm bin. These high temperatures kill everything, good and bad. Therefore, when comparing the two systems, worm bin composting and conventional composting, the bacterial life present in the worm bin composting system has a wider variety of beneficial organisms. This makes the product from your worm bin composting system a superior product, as it is the beneficial bacteria which is valuable when added to the soil as a soil amendment.

Some of you might worry about worm bin composting not reaching temperatures high enough to kill pathogens. Studies have shown the worm gut to be most astonishing.

  • Pathogens Removed Through Vermistabilization: "[Dan] Holcombe reported that tests performed on worm-worked material originating as bio-solids waste showed 'no detect' on such pathogens as E. coli and Salmonella as well as some enteric viruses. Not only is this report significant, but the process of vermistabilization (as Holcombe refers to it) means that vermicompost does not become inoculated with harmful airborne bacteria when exposed to unprocessed waste in close proximity." Casting Call, Vol. 1, No. 2 Casting Call is a bimonthly newsletter put out by Peter Bogdanov at Vermico.com. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in what is going on in the Vermiculture Industry.

So make yourself some better compost and start worm bin composting.

Happy Worming!
