The Worm Factory Worms in the house? Yes, as long as they help with the housework.
Our new Worm Factory worm composter houses 8,000 to 12,000 worms who will work tirelessly, night and day, turning kitchen scraps into rich compost for your garden. And worm compost has 10 times the nutrients of regular compost. Once established, the worms will compost 5 to 8 lbs. of kitchen scraps per week.
People have been composting in worm boxes for a long time, but this four-tiered system makes the process efficient and neat. Worms start in the bottom tray and migrate upward as they go, leaving behind tray after tray of rich compost. A reservoir at the bottom captures “worm tea” — an ideal, odor-free liquid fertilizer.

3 Reasons to Try Worm Composting
Composting kitchen scraps in a worm bin is easy and rewarding. Even if you already have an outdoor compost bin, having a worm bin makes good sense. Here’s why:
- Worms Work FAST: Worms can convert most kitchen scraps to finished compost in less than two weeks.
- Worms Work ALL WINTER LONG: Keep a worm bin in your basement, garage or pantry (above 55 degrees and below 80 degrees F) and your worms will keep making compost right through the winter months.
- Worm Castings are RICH: Top dress any of your indoor or outdoor plants with some finished worm compost and watch what happens. You’ll get better results than with any commercial fertilizer.
