California Bay Laurel leaves - not worm food?
I've recently started a 3'x4' worm bin in the San Francisco East Bay area, and am trying to find out if I can feed them some leaves from the Umbellularia californica (CA Bay Laurel) in our back yard.
I searched the web and only found a few oblique references by laypersons about avoiding Eucalyptus and possibly Bay leaves, but nothing very scientific.
So, can I feed Umbellularia californica leaves to my red wigglers or not? I'm assuming not due to the essential oils in the leaves, but wanted confirmation.
