I have been following a thread in rec.equestrian on outlawing
horse manure in California as "toxic waste", and one in
rec.gardens on the commonly used de-wormer Zimectrin as being
toxic to earthworms. If horse manure is mixed with urine/wood
shavings bedding, won't the decomposition of the shavings
require extra nitrogen, thereby negating the urine problem?
Are de-wormers fatal to earthworms (makes sense!) and how long
does the stuff last in compost?
