The second layer is about 3 to 4 inches thick which is laid over the building material. In this week mainly half rotten cow dung is used so that the material does not generate much heat at the time of climbing if there is a lack of moisture in this material. If yes it is necessary to spray water on every surface.
The raw on top of the second surface are placed lightly on 1 square meter of space which requires two hundred and a half in number approximate to release the earthwarm after they fall under the second surface because they do not like to open themselves.
