What to do if my wormery has an odour?

Properly maintained compost doesn't have an unpleasant odour. Should odours appear, it's most often because the earthworms can't manage to process all the bio waste, so lower the amount. The unprocessed bio-waste also causes high level of moisture of the composted material that then decays and smells. You can dry the contents of the composter with pieces of shredded paper, newspapers, cardboard or egg crates. The cause of the odour can also be remnants of stalk vegetables or potatoes. These should be introduced to the composter only after several months, when the earthworms are sufficiently active for timely processing.
