Heated Worm Inn
After my success at providing temperature control for my one-month old OSCR Jr bin, I took on the task of doing likewise for my new Worm Inn.
I had already constructed a support structure out of wood for the Inn. This was pretty easy. It required a couple of wood studs and two 8' furring strips. Everything was put together with wood screws with some quarter-inch screw hooks to hang the Inn from.
I attached a 50 watt reptile heating cable to the interior of the support by hanging it from cable clips and looping it around. 3/4 inch insulation board will help retain the heat. The heater cord is thermostatically controlled. The front insulation board is shown removed. It is in two pieces to facilitate retrieval of leachate and compost harvesting. The worms will be here in a couple of days. I may have to wait a while to evaluate the heating system since we are experiencing very mild weather for the next few days.
