    Comments about Worm Factory®:

    The bottom tray needs to have a solid base - without holes. Even with the recommended newspaper, the worms drop through the holes and can not get back up. Also, the trays should be a little deeper so scraps can be buried deeper in the bedding to prevent fruit flies. I strongly recommend reading the following book: The Best Place for Garbage: The Essential Guide to Recycling by Sandra Wiese.

      Comments about Worm Factory®:

      I compost outdoors at this time, but just having the worms around sounded better. I don't have many, just got 250 earthworms, but they appear to be doing fine, and I plan to use some on a hook next year. The amount "harvested" is not setting a record, but I'm happy with the product, it is easy to use, and seems to work fine. I try not to overthink this process, after all they are just worms!

        Comments about Worm Factory®:

        Zero odor. I keep mine in the basement but that might get too cool in the winter - we'll see. I put in a lot of waste (but can only add a little at a time) and there is still so much room in the composter that I have yet to add even the 2nd tray. I started with just veggies due to others' posts about fruit resulting in fruit flies. Having no problems, I started to add fruit and then did get fruit flies. I will not add fruit from this point on until the fruit flies die out.

        Comments about Worm Factory®:

        Love it! Actually purchased it because my mother-in-law was always interested in worms. This product works great for her mobility issues and the grand children think it is fun (they don't realize it's educational). Best of all no worms have escaped into my house and so far I haven't managed to kill them all!

          Comments about Worm Factory®:

          I set up the worm factory in late January with all the stuff supplied with and described in the manual and added 1# of red wiggler worms from NYC Compost Project on Feb. 1st. I've been feeding them coffee grounds and cut up tea bags and fruit and veg. scraps and egg shells. I spray the paper cover and bedding as needed to keep it moist. I was concerned that I could see so few worms but today I added more bedding mixed with some food and I fluffed up the rather matted bedding and saw more worms who were not happy to be disturbed. They and their bedding/food are now about 1" from the top of this first bin so I'll leave them alone for awhile and set up the second bin above them sometime next week. They are at 60 degrees F and producing some castings. This is a much more efficient set-up than the large plastic bin from which one must manually separate worms from castings.

            Comments about Worm Factory®:

            I have had the Worm Factory for one month and have had to add the 2nd level. The worms are now moving up and have left beautiful black gold behind. I grow and divide about 30 different daylily varieties for sale and can hardly wait to start the repotting process that will include the castings in the starter daylilies. I imagine that by February I will have the most beautiful daylilies for sale. Buy it! Enjoy it! Love the environment! You'll be surprised at how much you, too, will love the WORM FACTORY 360!

              I like this high rise apartment for worms. They seem happy and can rise above the compost.

                Comments about Worm Factory®:

                This is my first experience with compost of any kind. I thought it would be fun to use worms to help do the work and to give my 3-year-old grandson a learning opportunity. Plus, maybe my veggies will benefit from the fruits of the worms' labor. My worms were a little late arriving due to cold weather, but since they got here they've been hard at work! I'm about to start my second tray and can't wait to use the compost! So far, I'm keeping the Worm Factory in the house because it's been too hot outside. No odors, no insects, no problems.

                  Comments about Worm Factory®:

                  We have used a large outdoor composter for more than 10 years with poor results, so we were amazed at how fast these little guys process newspaper and scraps of food. We do not include meat or cooked vegetables out of personal preference, but agree that this system would probably be compatible with urban composters who do.

                  I was tired of throwing away veggies at the end of the week, now they are not going to waste. As an added benefit I don't have to pay for compost anymore and I can control the quality.
