I think the little red worms are the ones that started off very often in horse manure, maybe cattle or sheep too. Starting a new heap a few shovelfuls from a wormy old heap will work as Artjak said or if a heap seems to have gone v slow I put some extra worms in. It's a bit like making yogurt, and, no, I don't put wormy compost in my yogurt.
i put all weeds on the heap with the exception of couch grass, bishp's weed and bindweed. Blood runs cold at the thought! Box trimmings wont break down either.
