feeding worms bread.....

This message from Wormswrangler....our exporter:

We have found that bread kills worms. What seems to happen is that the yeast is still alive no matter how old the bread. The yeast seems to really love being inside the worms. The yeast multiplies inside the worm. We have pictures of worms that have bubbles pop out the side of their skins. These bubbles literally explodes.

worms crawling out!

I've just had a phonecall from my neighbour, Jenny - her worms tried to crawl out after she harvested her first batch......

A: earthworms are very sensitive creatures and hate uncertainty or change in routine. So, if you bother them too much - or move them around - they might decide to "pack up"! The only way to avoid this is to keep them in a spot with a light switched on for the first few evenings. They hate light and will make the best of what they have and settle back in!
Remember this ANYTIME you moved them around!
