Worms as composters
By Okra Man
from Mechanicsville, Virginia
Comments about : Composting Worms:
Like I said when evaluating the composter I have not had it but for several weeks, but the worms do not really seem to be breaking waste down like I thought they would. At this point I can not see them composting a pound of waste a week which is what the directions said. However the worms came alive and well as far as I could see and they are still alive.

Hit or miss
from Philadelphia suburbs
My worms arrived and they were all dead. And when i say dead I mean 'as a door nail'. And smelly. It puzzled me why they were shipped in February as in years past I had to wait before receiving my order- which i was perfectly fine with. But for some reason these were sent to me and I happened to be home the day they arrived (thankfully) so i pulled out my work factory and worm kit to build them their little bed and get them started. I read that they might smell a bit (though i never recalled odor in past years crop) so I didn't think anything of it. Since they came so early i set up shop inside. I checked them faithfully for a week to see some life - providing water and food, but any movement I saw were gnats. Not ideal since its indoor. Ugh. I titled this hit or miss because i have had success with these composting worms, (and red wigglers) that I've bought from Gardeners and I have had failures. In a recent past i was sent an empty sack. No worms. Lots of bedding, but nothing else. And it wasn't because they were too small, etc. I checked. Thoroughly. That time i called and Gardeners had the worm company send me a new batch. This time though, I think i might just forego the worms this year.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
