While I'm sure that this information is not the final word, according to Frabil's worm box insructions, the mold doesn't affect the worms.

And I've read on some vermiculture site that the worms will eat the molds and their spores thereby pasteurizing the medium. Don't know that I'd trust the sterility, but I like the idea.

About a week ago I acquired 2 huge styrofoam coolers. They measure approx. 48"x18"x16". Comparing that to the size of a habitat II, this box can support 480 worms or so.

If anyone is interested, talk to your local flower wholesaler, I paid $25 a piece for mine. They do like to hoard them here in MN, because the only way they get them is the cut flowers they order from CA are shipped in them.

For anyone near the Twin Cities, I am able to get several more, but they can't be sent ups due to their size. I can only fit 2 in my Ciera, one in the back seat and one in the trunk.

Sorry to hear that. Mine just smells like damp earth. My bedding is newspaper, straw, dung. Do you bury the scraps you add?

*Sorry, I missed the part where you mentioned burial. Maybe overfeeding. Maybe you make enough scraps for more than one bin. Or it's so warm that contams. get a chance to spread before the scraps are consumed.

*Also keep a close eye on the temp inside the box if you have it outside. They die easily if they get too warm. I killed a box off in '99 because of that (outdoor temps. in the 90's). My basement is always 57 deg. f. The worms seem to like it, and as long as I bury the scraps, there's no unpleasant odor.

What you guys can do if you are having problems with smell and molds, keep the moisture content correct.... not too wet not too dry, turn the upper half of the pile/bin (assuming you have a small compost box like the one in the picture), and after you throw your food scraps and whatever else you feed it... make sure you put a thin layer of 'something' over the top.... like more compost for example, get a bag of finished composted manure and use this.... most any kind of soil will work though, this layer is to cover the 'fresh' food that you put in there so that it is not exposed to the air above it. What I do with mine is I put all my scraps in on the 'right' side of the bin, and harvest the worm poop from lower left side.
Here are those pics pc,

that's pretty...
* How much material can you put in? And do you have temp issues?

*that relate to the worm activity?
