Featured Customer Questions-John M.
I receive certain questions that get asked often. Because of this, I’m going to start including some of the most frequently asked questions right here…under my latest addition to my blog, “Featured Customer Questions”.
Here’s a question regarding composting pet poo from John M.
Will the giant reds eat dog waste?
Yep. The giant reds will eat all the same foods as normal red wigglers.
A couple of caveats:
1. If you give your animal(Dog, horse, cow), worm medicine, while active, the worm medicine will kill all of the worms that eat the feces.
2. It is usually not recommended to compost dog or cat manure(or any meat eating animal). This is due to the possibility of pathogen cross contamination.
3. If you decide to compost your carnivorous animals’ manure, make sure the worm castings are placed only on ornamentals. You do not want the worm casts on any fruits or vegetables that you would eat.
Other than that…the worms will absolutely eat manure.
