Environment Frequently Asked Questions
What are the little white worms I sometimes see in the worm bin?
The tiny white worms you see on the food on the surface of your bin are called Enchytraeids. They are also called 'Potworms' or 'White Worms'. They won't harm your bin or the compost worms. They are actually composters too. If you get a lot of them its an indication that the bin is slightly acidic. Consider adding a sprinkling of lime and you'll notice them gone in a few days.
