I am a beekeeper and I have some waste from beehives. Is beekeeping waste safe to use in worm composting? I have taken the wax from here and all that is left is cocoons.
Good Question But...
Hi Adam, that's a good question but I'm afraid I really don't know.
I would not hesitate to compost cocoons in a regular compost. But I'm not sure how to manage them as part of your worm composting.
What I would do is a small experiment. Take a few of your cocoons and test them with your worms. You should soon get a read on whether they like them as a food. It should also tell you whether they are a problem for the worms. If you do the experiment do let us know what you learn.
