WHY GRUBS ARE GOOD IN YOUR COMPOST

1. SOIL AERATION
Grubs dig through compost, improving airflow and preventing compacted soil. You want your compost loose and well-aerated.
2. THEY BREAK DOWN ORGANIC MATTER
Grubs consume and break down organic materials, accelerating the composting process. With grubs, you might have ready compost sooner!
3. NUTRIENT RECYCLING
Grubs excrete nutrient-rich castings, enriching the compost with valuable minerals. This process makes nutrients easily available to plants.
4. GRUBS SPEED UP COMPOSTING
Grubs feed on organic matter, helping break it down quickly. Their activity also "warms up" compost.
5. MICROBIAL STIMULATION
As they feed and excrete within your compost pile, grubs boost microbial activity, aiding decomposition and nutrient release.
