It's a misconception that red wigglers will eat just about any food scraps you choose to give to them. Like anyone, they seem to have their preferences, too. Here are a few of their favorites:
- Fruit peelings
- Melon rinds
- Coffee grounds
- Bread, unsweetened cereal, and pasta (plain)
Notice that most of these foods are either moist, soft, or low in acidity.
There are also foods that worms are not so crazy about. Try not to add a lot of these items to your worm bin:
- Onions, onion skins
- Potatoes, potato peels
- Citrus fruits and rinds
Of course, you should also never add meats, fats, or dairy foods to your worm bin.By keeping these tips in mind, you'll have a healthy, happy worm bin.
