Will this harvesting idea work?
My son's worm bin looks like it's ready to harvest and I've been trying to figure out a good way to separate the worms from worm poop. Today we took a square piece of wet burlap, the stuff you use to wrap young trees in the winter, and we dumped the contents of the worm bin into it. Then we filled the bin with new bedding and food in one corner. We bundled up the burlap by twisting the corners together then put a rubber band around them to hold it together, then placed the bundle on top of the new bedding and put the lid back on. My idea is that the worms will migrate to the new bedding over the next couple of weeks and all that will be left in the bundle will be the worm poop, ready for harvest. I know the worms easily fit through the burlap, in fact some were already coming through the bottom onto the concrete by the time we bundled it up.
Will this work? Am I about to run into some unforseen problems?
