The Toothless Worm

12 Apr 2012

We recently had a question about the reason for sprinkling a hand full of soil into the worm farm with the food scraps.

So here's the answer, worms have a 'gizzard' in their neck, like birds. Worms & birds do not have teeth.

The soil added into worm farms is to ensure that the worms can get sufficient 'grit', sand and other soil particles to put into their gizzard with their food, to grind it before it goes into their stomach.
