Pet Waste Composting with Worms (How-To)

Let your worms manage your pet waste!

Start up a completely separate system, preferably outside.

There is a health concern. Cat and dog wastes contain

potentially nasty pathogens. Cat wastes have an added danger. It can also

contain a parasitic protozoan called Toxoplasma gondii. This can be a serious threat for pregnant women

or those with compromised immune systems.

All of that being said, the worms still manage to turn your pet poo into valuable vermicompost for flower

gardens and lawns. My next post will have the how-to information for starting this composting system.

Stay tuned :O)
