Great Question – Leland
Just wanted to share with everyone a great question that I was sent today.
When i’m adding food scraps to the worm inn, do i have to bury them under the bedding that is already there, or can i put them in on top of that bedding and then cover it with more bedding? – so that inside the bag there would be a layer of scraps, a layer of bedding, and then another layer of scraps and another layer of bedding-
The ultimate goal is to have the scraps buried as deeply as possible. The reason for this is you don’t want flying bugs smelling the rotting vegetation. It’s easiest and most effective to bury your scraps with as much bedding as possible. Layering does not benefit anything.
Soon you will have:
Not much here to invite flying bugs…especially as the top layers of bedding start to dry out.
