The Lazy 'S' Worm Ranch

I received my 5-tier Gusanito worm bin today. Seems nicely designed. I had no problems setting it up. I bought it from here: WormsWrangler
I had too much nice damp bedding with worms already happily roaming throughout it to fit in just one tray, so I had to start with two stacked trays of bedding and worms.
I guess I'll start putting food in the lower tray only to encourage the worms down into it to work on that material first.
Everything seems fine so far, and I still have a light on the bin and no one has tried to escape since yesterday when I first got my worms.

I think it fits in rather unobtrusively in the corner of the breakfast nook there. Looks fine to me. The 'Lazy S' ranch is up and running!I should get my second pound of worms either today or tomorrow, coming from Canada, and I'll add them in the bottom tray too. International romance is in the air this Spring!


  1. Whatever you do - and I speak from experience here - do NOT try to brand your worms, even though you are now considered a rancher. Most of them do not survive the ordeal, and the ones that do get very ornery and hard to corral.

  2. Congratulations on the new worms and bin. I hope all goes well on your new adventure.
