Worm Composting Bins and Ideal Temperatures

by Mike
(United States)

I plan to start a small worm composting bin and would like to know the best place to put it based on the temperatures outside. What can the worms withstand for heat in the summer and cold in the winter? I know you're visiting with Gerrie from The Worm Factory this weekend, can you please ask her my question?


Also, I may need some help talking my wife into letting me put it in the basement. :)

Hey Mike,

As promised, I asked Gerrie from The Worm Factory your question regarding worm bins and ideal indoor/outdoor temperatures. If you want to fast forward to the exact location in the video below, you're looking around the 2 minute marker.



Below is the text that I included in the video on YouTube. I'm posting it below because I don't want you guys to miss out on our Rooster Contest (see below).

Pasted directly from YouTube...

Are there other types of composting worms? Interested to learn why calcium is so important for your composting worm bins? Gerrie from The Worm Factory answers to all of these questions and more in this video.
