Does this stay in the grounds at high levels after they are used? This has
been passed down the family, and my Grandma swore by coffee grounds to
attract worms. It doesnt seem to bother fruit flies either which flock
around the scrap pail, especially now with all the excess tomatoe parts,
have to dump daily lucky it's in the garage. Maybe it helps themn wake up
in the morning as well =).
