Do worm bins smell bad?
To avoid unpleasant smells, the worm bin needs to be operated with plenty of air circulation and the right amount of moisture. If the bin gets too wet, add more newspapers and turn the contents to introduce more air. Also, avoid overfeeding worms or giving them inappropriate food. Some tips for avoiding unpleasant odors are:
  • Add only an amount of food that the worms can eat in a few days
  • Add only the proper food items
  • Keep bedding moist but not wet
  • Maintain air spaces in the bedding
