If everything goes well, they can be found everywhere. Young worms or cocoons resemble to white threads or brown balls of few millimeters. When things go wrong, the worms stop reproducing, and if it's going very bad, they will try to massively leave the bin, for example by taking refuge in the lower tray.

    This knowledge is quite spread in web: Many sites and articles provide introduction for newcomers, few provide detailed explanations on specific aspects, but none allow contribution and compiling in a wiki form. This wiki ambitious goal is to compile all kind of knowledge about vermicompost scattered the web, forums and books, from both theorical and practical perspectives. This wiki is more focused on domestic composting, but without totally excluding the industrial scale. Here you can understand the interest of vermicompost, find theoretical knowledge about vermicomposting worms and process, learn practically how to properly make and run a compost bin, and maybe contribute from your own experience to share your experience.

    They are epigeal, i.e. they live at the surface of the ground. They thrive in rotting vegetation, compost and manure. They can rarely be found in soil, and prefer conditions where other worms cannot survive. Other specific earthworm species are also adapted to vermi-composting, like Eisenia Andrei. More common species, e.g. Lombricus or Dendrei, can also be used but produces more slowly inferior quality compost.
