Worms Evacuating Bedding Boxes

Sent by: Sally Adams (Usa) on August 04, 2003 hour 22:26:06:


Hello, all! :-)
My husband and I are raising red wigglers, and recently, we have had an issue with our worms leaving the bedding boxes.
My first thought was that the bedding was too wet -- several sites I have visited mentioned that the bedding should be moist to the touch but you should not be able to squeeze any water from it. We turned the boxes, and have decreased water to the point where no water squuzes out from the bedding -- which eleviated the problem for a few days -- but they are now beginning to exhibit the same signs of crawling out??? Could it be the temperature of the boxes....they are generally about 75 degrees....
Just curious if anyone has any suggestions?
