Problem with smelly wormery

Ann Monaghan asked 13 years ago

Can you advise if it is normal to have a very bad smell from a wormery, if not how do I avoid it?

There should not be a very bad smell from a wormery because that signals a lack of oxygen in the decomposing material, which does not suit the worms and they migrate to the top to get air.

Try not to have the material too wet or solid, so that air can get in. Use some coarse material to open it up and physically loosen the mass of material.
