I make my own fertilizer for tomatoes and pepper etc. and notice something that is new to me.  In my fertilizer mixture I use coffee grounds. I save them in a coffee can and keep them sealed after adding other grounds to the can until it is full. Before making the mixture I bake them in the over at 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.  However this year I noticed little white worms in them (same as last year). I have no ideal what this is or how they got in the used grounds. I put the grounds in a container lined with foil and set out in the 90 deg. sun to dry them. I also noticed they can not take to heat, as I was scraping around to mix the ground up a little I noticed that these thing jump around in the sun.
I have taken a picture of the worms and a short video on them jumping and will post them as soon as I can figure out how to.
Has anyone seen anything like this, or know what the worms are, or how they get into the grounds ??
Regards,
kt

Take a photo as close as you can.  It's too hard to see any details.  Jumping worms?

Well, I just Binged "jumping worms." Looks lie there are larva (maggots) that are able to jump. Do you have a County Entomologist?

I made several attempts to get a better picture using two different cameras but didn't do much better, I will add the best one here. And no we do not have a County Entomologist that I am aware of but will ask around. This is a rural area and we don't have a lot here, sorry..
Actually the best view is of them jumping, but it is a video and I can't figure out how to post it. I will gladly send it to you (or anyone else) if you like. Just email me at familyties66@bellsouth.net and I will attach it to a reply. The video is 5.5 MB. and can be seen using Windows Media Player.

What is this ???? Empty worms in coffee grounds

Post  kauairosina 7/10/2014, 3:30 pm

We have noticed little maggot like worms in our coffee grounds from our espresso machine if I don't empty the spent grounds container soon enough.  I figured maybe larvae brought on by warmth but don't know their origin.  Will be interested in replies to this post.  Mine don't jump as far as I know.
