We dry our Worm Castings / Vermicast partially in the shed, never exposing it to direct sunlight, as that kills off the bacterial life. It still has some moisture to keep bacteria, fungi etc alive, and also there can be eggs and worms that have slipped through the cracks. No short cuts with us - you get premium quality. See our other listings for compost and European Nightcrawler fishing worms.
