I have been making worm dropping compost for several years (28 years). Without any fail.
I have two compost heaps of a cubic meter each, with brick sides and back and wooden pallet front that can slide out.
I add lawn clippings (green), daed leaves from silver oak and brazillian pepper, and sometimes shredded prunings from the trees ouround me. Dead material do not effect the my ""Worm compost"" (worm droppings) at all. I also add kitchen scraps, and the bedding waste of my daughter's bunnies. The supply of leaves and law clippings is non-stop throughout the year.
When I plan forward to have more than normal quantities, I add some straw bales as well.
I load the one heap throughout the season and harvest once a year, after the winter. I get about half to two thirds of a cubic meter black compost, smelling like soil, but close inspection reveal that it is indeed droppings. Look like mouse droppings. The compost is used throughout the season till finished and then I will build another heap.
The worms invite themself. They are the worms (larvae) of the fruit scafer beetle:
The digest even dead material, as long as it is wet. Their pooh is the size of mouse droppings and I have excellent results with this as a compost. I also use this as a mulch.
40% soil and 60% of this make a potting soil for containers that keep the plants well fed and the soil remains damp even in the hot days of our summer.
When I harvest the compost, I just throw all worms back to the side still in the making. I have not yet experienced any problems with the adult beetles.
