While vermicomposting is relatively new to Canada, it’s been used for centuries in warmer areas of our world. In places like India, Thailand and Southern China, composting with worms is considered an ancient technology. Red composting worms are tropical in nature and more difficult to employ in cold climates, but employment is exactly the right term to use in describing this emerging technology. Red Composting worms are extremely versatile, they can be used at home and work to control organic waste keeping material out of landfills. In rural settings where oder is not such an issue, you need not stay with the strictly Vegan diet that many households prefer and can safely compost more pungent waste materials such as manure, after slaughter animal by products and the occasional carcass. Naturally you should match the amount of material to the amount of worms. http://www.naturesperfectplantfood.com/2012/09/21/whats-your-worm-count/
