Hill and Sort Method

The hill and sort method is a bit time-consuming. But for the home worm bin enthusiast, it works well.
**Empty the contents of your bin onto a table covered in plastic or a light-colored vinyl tablecloth. **Place a bright light over the material.
**Now separate into small hills and scoop off the tops repeating the procedure every 20 minutes.
**The worms will continuously dive away from the light until all that’s left are the worms in a small amount of the compost. Place them into your freshly prepared bedding and start recycling again. There will still be some worms left in the separated compost. You may decide to dry your vermicompost  enough to enable you to sift it through a screen collecting the remainder of worms.
