Mint from mojitos? Celery from bloody marys?

coco124June 16, 2006

Newbie here. It's been 3 weeks, and they seem to be happy so far. Go figure that this should be my first posting/question: can I put greens from alcoholic beverages into my worm bin? For example, mint from mojitos or celery from bloody marys? Will it kill them or be beneficial? What about leftover citrus from alcoholic drinks?

Thank you and cheers!

Once the celery and mint has started to rot they should be ok. You could add it to your usual worm food.

From what I've read citrus is not an acceptable food for worms, however if you keep on reading you will find that some people say it is.

worms will take care of any decomposing organic material - fresh citrus is not of interest to them because of the "zest" [d-Limonene], but once the bacteria start in on it, they'll take to it, or to the bacteria anyway, which is their major food source
