I just received this picture from one of my high volume resellers. She spray paints her stands black. Although the stands look great in white, they look fantastic painted black.
The Worm Inn continues to sell extremely well. As sales have increased, so have comments and questions. I’d like to take this opportunity to address some of the most common comments and questions.
Comment #1 – The Worm Inn is much larger than I expected.
This is the most common comment that I receive. It’s obvious that the pictures on my website have not done this great system justice. Many people think this is a small unit, and therefore will not process much waste. Although The Worm Inn only takes up an 18″ x 18″ footprint (Fits anywhere), it can process a LARGE AMOUNT of food waste. Unlike plastic systems that greatly limit the amount of produce scraps that you can process at any one time, The Worm Inn can handle as much as you want to put inside. This makes The Worm Inn the first Worry Free Worm Composting System.
Comment #2 – The Worm Inn is constructed VERY WELL
The Worm Inn is a heavy duty commercial composting system. Although plastic bins are subject to cracking, chipping, and/or legs falling off, The Worm Inn is constructed to last for years. With over 500 Worm Inns sold since the beginning of this year, I’ve not received a single comment about a unit not holding up. Not one! The Worm Inn is actually overbuilt by design. Although you can find cheap imitations made out of cheap fabric and not intended to last, The Worm Inn is built out of the highest quality backpack material available and it’s straps are made of high quality Polypropylene. It’s built to last!
Common Question #1 – Why don’t you send out Instructions with The Worm Inn?
All customers that purchase a Worm Inn direct from me receive a confirmation email letting them know when their unit is being shipped, along with a link for INNstructions at www.TheWormInn.com I’ve considered sending INNstructions with each unit, and could easily do so, but aren’t we supposed to be conserving valuable resources? Why waste paper when the INNstructions are available with a simple mouse click? I may waiver and ship INNstructions sometime down the road, but isn’t it better to save a tree?
Common Question #2 – Why aren’t the INNstructions more detailed?
The INNstructions are basic because The Worm Inn solves the most common problems regarding raising worms.
Too many produce scraps killed my worms - Not a problem for The Worm Inn. If it fits, it feeds! The amount of scraps you can feed worms is directly related to the amount of air flow in the system. Because plastic does not breathe and creates a constant muddy environment, you will always face this challenge when feeding worms in a plastic bin. With The Worm Inn you have no silly plastic bin restrictions such as,”Only add a handful of scraps to avoid overfeeding”.
When stuffing The Worm Inn, just leave room to cover the scraps under a nice thick layer of bedding. The thicker the better! Flying bugs like uncovered scraps regardless of the system.
Too much water killed my worms – You cannot overwater The Worm Inn!!!!! It’s dummy proof! In fact, you can water The Worm Inn right through it’s mesh top using a garden hose. You don’t even need to unzip the unit to water it. Excess water just runs through the system. Keep a bucket underneath to catch the runoff, and you have some nice bacteria laden leachate that didn’t have time to go anaerobic!
Pages and pages of ”Problem solving” instructions are not necessary when you no longer need to worry about overfeeding and overwatering!
Common Question #3 – How do you keep the bedding on top from drying out?
You can’t…but you don’t need to! Flying bugs look for two things. A food source, and moisture. By keeping a nice thick top layer of dry bedding, you make the environment less hospitable for flying bugs! The “SWEET SPOT” of The Worm Inn (Where the rotting food is in the middle of your damp bedding) will be loaded with worms happily eating away. Additionally, the air flow will keep your worms more active than you are used to seeing. Worms get very sluggish trying to traverse the mud in a plastic bin.
If you’ve never raised worms before because you thought it was too difficult, Try The Worm Inn!
If you’ve tried unsuccessfully to raise worms in the past, try The Worm Inn!
If you are tired of throwing your excess produce scraps in the compost pile because you know you can’t put them all in your muddy plastic worm bin, try The Worm Inn!
The Worm Inn is DIFFERENT - It’s solved the common problems associated with raising worms!
