The Competitive Advantage
The 4ft x 8ft worm incubator is basically a "money
There are two basic types of worm systems on the market today,
vermicomposting systems and worm breeding systems. The types
of systems that fall into the composting category are pass through
(or stacking) systems and continuous flow systems. Our worm breeding
system is designed specifically to maximize the worms prolific
breeding habits. It provides all the environmental benefits of the other vermicomposting systems, plus, we offer higher financial returns by
producing more worms and their bi-products.
How? For one, our innovative design.
We produce the industries only electronically heated, insulated
fiberglass worm incubator. This is an important distinction because
worms will only reproduce within a specific temperature range. The
incubator maintains an ideal breeding temperature all year. Your
product is your profit. Our incubator allows you to maintain a
consistent yield even in the winter.
The three primary sellable products are: The worms themselves (more
is better), worm castings (poop) and
leachate (worm tea - a concentrated liquid fertilizer). Worm
composting systems tend to concentrate on the vermicomposting
process, that being, the breaking down of organic material into worm
castings (organic fertilizer). They often overlook the other two
product revenue streams.
Our incubators produce more worms than any other growing system, bar
none! This is a strong statement, but let us explain. When you
maintain control of five (5) climatic conditions; temperature,
moisture, pH level, oxygen, and food source, the worms will breed
We at ECOLOGY TECHNOLOGY
have engineered the incubator to provide maximum surface area. This
makes a world of difference when it comes to worm re-production.
Worms breathe through their skin and tend to feed towards the top
layer of the bedding. So the more surface area you provide the
higher the worm population the incubator will support. As long as
worms are happily eating, breathing and absorbing moisture at the
proper temperature they will reproduce. In smaller vermicomposting
systems, overcrowding at the surface reduces breeding.
Each mature breeder worm can produce four (4) egg capsules per
month. We have credited each egg capsule of producing four (4) baby
worms. This equates to be about sixteen (16) worms per month from

the incubator kit).
We call this the "Miracle of
multiplication" or "The more product you produce the more money you

system is a closed system, that is, all of a worms offspring
(the product) are
retained within the system. Whereas continuous flow systems are
open systems, allowing a constant and continuous flow of offspring
(profit potential) to be lost out the castings exhaust chute.
Leachate (worm tea) is another good money maker derived from the
vermicomposting process. At
ECOLOGY TECHNOLOGY we recognized its profit potential and designed an 85 gallon
leachate reservoir onto our incubator. Effectively this
provides a low maintenance collection and harvesting system. You
harvest at your convenience. When it comes to the other composting
systems on the market, what can we say, they either don't collect
leachate, at all, or require you to continually swap out one gallon
The last product, worm castings, is natures best fertilizer.
Castings are highly sought after by plant growers and companies selling to
plant growers. To put it in simple terms the more worms you produce the
more castings they produce. Since our incubators can support higher
population densities you will realize higher output. Worm castings
sell at various prices according to their quality. The casting
produced by your
incubator will be thoroughly processes and can realize a higher
asking price due to its superior quality.
Ease of Maintenance
Both stacking and continuous flows systems require a considerable
amount of labor in their maintenance. With stacking systems you need
to constantly shuffle the stacking order. With continuous flow systems you
need to make sure the castings are emptying properly on a regular
basis. With our incubator there is no need to lay on your back to
empty a castings exhaust chute or
have to use a rake to empty castings as with some flow through
systems. With our worm incubator you will only need to empty the
system twice a year, saving you your valuable time and labor. This also
results in a higher profit margin.
Lastly, we designed our incubator so that it would be easy to work
with. The durable fiberglass construction won't rot, giving it a
long service life. It also has the proper proportions to allow
easy transportation or relocation. The incubator will fit in a pickup truck bed and it will easily pass
through a standard size door frame.
