Fruit kitchen scraps

Madeline Peterson

What insects eat fruit kitchen scraps like banana peels really well? My earthworms in my vermicompost box don't seem to like them that much, so I thought I'd get something else to turn the fruit scraps into fertilizer, lol. Roaches aren't an option, just fyi. My husband refuses to have them in the house.

Well, I was going to say dubias.

You could put them in a food processor then add them to the bin to make them easier for the worms. Could also just add them straight to the garden.

Was not aware there was more than one kind of compost worm until you said that. After much research, I think I actually have red wigglers.
