    So, I've only had my composter for about a month but I really dig it. I love the worms! They're like my new little pets. I opted for only a half pound of worms--I could probably have added another tray by now if I'd gotten a whole pound. The composter is definitely odor free if you manage it properly. Maybe I would have liked the lid and the longer legs on the 360 better, but the original is suiting me just fine. Can't wait till I can give my garden some worm tea!

    I am keeping the trays inside because of winter setting in. My worms are falling through the holes and drowning in the little bit of water that accumulates. I finally shoved a paper towel under the spout so when when fall through the holes, they won't slide down and drown. I am really disappointed in the product. I wish I hadn't spent the money and saved the little worms lives.

    The 'factory" was received in a timely manner in perfect condition. We have set it up, following the instructions in the manual and DVD, and now we await the worms (hopefully, they will arrive today). Their new home is ready! We are excited!

    The picture shows that these bins sit higher than they actually do. If they did sit that high they would be easier to handle to cycle out the trays.

            Customer Q & A

            4 Questions About This Product
            Q: "How many worms do I need to purchase with the cascade compost bin?"
            A: You should purchase about 1,000 worms to start your composter. After this initial purchase, the worm count will double every three months!
            Q: "How long will it take 1,000 worms to make a 12.5 pound tray of compost?"
            A: According to our specifications it takes approximately 6,000 worms one week to make 5-8 pounds of compost. At this exact rate it would take 1,000 worms a little over 12 weeks to produce 12.5 pounds of compost.
            Q: "Can I put dog droppings in any other composter other than the Pet Poo bin?"
            A: You should not put dog droppings in your composter, they will attract pests to the pile and can spread disease.
            Q: "I ordered worms from you and they have arrived before my composter. What should I do with the worms until I get the compost bin?
            A: The worms can last up to ten days in the packaging they arrived in. (Not the best, but they will last) Give them some water when they arrive.

            If you're afraid they won't make it, you can make a temporary home for them instead. Put the worms into a plastic container about the size of a shoe box or bucket. Put some shredded black and white newsprint in the bottom that has been moistened (about the amount of a rung out sponge). This will act as food and bedding until your compost bin arrives and they can be placed into their new permanent home.
