Pests In My Worm Bin (White Worm Type Insect)

by Skip
(Colorado Springs)

Small worm bins, have 1/4" or smaller white worm type insect, hundreds of them.

I see them around the food which I bought from a vendor that I am not happy with.

I have also see them in masses on worms. Would like to know what they are and how to control or get rid of them. thanks

Worm Pests In Worm Bin

Hey Skip,

Can you Upload some pics or send me a link to an internet site that shows the type of insect you are talking about?

This is quite a broad topic, but if this is indeed an insect then I would suggest using DE (diatomaceous Earth) in the worm bin.

go to my link here:

It really is hard to know what pest you are dealing with so just let me know and hopefully the DE page will answer your question.

Thanks for posting your question,
