Can I compost sugar pea plants that had aphids?

Post  lzalvis on Wed 18 Jun - 14:55

when I tore down my sugar snap pea plants, they were overrun with aphids.  The dead plants are currently sitting in a pile, as I'm not sure if I can add them to my worm bin or not.  All aphids seem to have gone elsewhere, but I'm ignorant of this and don't know if they left any aphid eggs behind or something....

Can I add them to my worm compost bin?

Yes, you can add them to the compost bin.  I think the worm bin as well, the aphids won't last long in there. Do you have a regular compost pile?

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
