The NW Redworms mini harvester is simple to use. Once you remove your compost from your bin you just add it into the front of your harvester. Then go around to the back and start turning the compost (slowly). Your compost and redworms will roll their way down to the back of the harvester. At the same time the smaller castings will fall through the screen. Unfortunately the egg capsules and some redworms will also fall through. You can pick them out and put them back into the compost or your can included them with your castings to use in your garden or potting soil. If your compost is too wet this may not work as easily as you see here, but there are solutions to drying up your compost. One is to add in some dry compost material (I just happen to keep that on hand) or dry bedding. Once you are able to run the compost through the harvester you will have a pile of redworms and
larger debris. You can add these guys right back to your compost, start another bin or share them with friends. Just remember you don't want to run your own stock too low. Redworms seem to party more and lay more egg cocoons when the redworm population is more dense.
