Worms and Maggots

johncoaty(9)November 10, 2008

Can maggots and worms coexist together in the same bed or should I remove the maggots?

HI!

Worms don't have any natural predators except maybe some rodents. So, if they aren't rodents, they won't hurt the worms and you don't have to remove them.

One exception might be the Black Soldier fly where its larvae eats so much and so fast that the worms may not be able to get enough food. The larvae are black and 1/4" or so long and don't look like maggots.

Cheers!
