What Do Red Wiggler Worms Eat? What Do You Feed Composting Worms?
One of the major reasons to worm compost at home is to responsibly dispose of your food scrap waste (instead of sending it to a land fill). So, what do worms eat?
Worms eat tiny, invisible, bacteria that grow and feed on the food scraps that you add to your bin. The worms also feed on the food scraps and worm bin bedding. You can feed your composting worms (and the bacteria) any vegetable scraps including egg shells and coffee grounds (if you use a paper coffee filter, throw that in too!). Remember, worms are vegetarian. Meat, bones, oil, cheese, and dairy should not be fed to worms. Keep them out of your worm bin to avoid pests and odors.
