When to cook vermicompost from manure

When vermicompost can be prepared from fresh manure, if you advise using M-devices. Only in the summer or in the fall is it also possible? Thanks.


It is possible in the autumn, but you need to keep in mind that in winter the worms go to the depths and the process of production of vermicompost is suspended. And the Californian can freeze in our winters. Therefore, the “worm” should be insulated. Even in winter, worms can be eaten by mice and moles.

Fresh manure (pork, cow, horse or bird droppings) cannot be used as food for worms, only half-rotted. Fresh only from rabbits and goats.
