Is treating manure with worms sufficient to kill internal parasites such as tapeworms, pin worms, etc?

It just seems to me that if they crawled out of the ground and into the compost, they would be perfect for what I want them for.
Any thoughts? Ideas?
When we started our worm bins we cut squashes and watermellons in half and laid them face down on the ground in our garden. We waited a few weeks until they started to get mushy and they were full of worms with which we started our worm bins. What could be better then local worms that are already part of your yards ecosystem and set up for success within your climate.
