Raising worms outdoors in hot climates.

I want a big outdoor worm bin. But I live in East Texas where it gets very hot in the summer. Any tips on how to do it and how not to do it based on experience would be very helpful. ThanksSee More

What food is immediately most attractive to European Nightcrawlers?

This is a question and an experiment log...

What is the food that will draw European Night-crawlers most quickly, within 1 to 4 days? Please do post your personal experiences with foods that they come to within 1 to 4 days.

Right now, I'm interested in this food experiment, but ultimately, I'd like to figure out how to draw some of the biggest worms into a small area for "quick picking", so if you have personal experience with that please do post about it.

Egg Carton Feeder

I am going to place "Smoothies" along with pulverized egg shells or grit into a paper egg carton and then freeze them inside a one gallon zip lock bag.
When it is feeding time, I'll just break off chunks & toss them in.

Millipede wood processing

This is an update on the discussion regarding vermicomposting Cellulose after "preprocessing" wood chips by millipedes. The millipedes that I mentioned were apparently recent arrivals from the Bahamas. Since they were non-natives and had little natural population control they were quite prolific. 

Despite being very efficient at processing decaying organic material and especially wood chips, they were only a problem due to their high population levels.

This year…

New Worm bin

Got my worms a couple of weeks ago. Placed them in my wooden outdoor compost bin that was used during the summer. Left the cooled compost inside the bin and used that as the bottom bedding, placed the worms inside the bin and added some pumpkin chunks. Things where going good and I discovered that the worms enjoyed the pumpkin chunks.

Then winter decided it was time to show up and the temp decided to drop. So after monitoring the temp inside the bin for a couple of days I…

Learning

Hello All, I'm wanting to start a worm bin and not sure how to go about it. Size or space is not a problem and I'm in Texas so it's not to cold (most of the time), but does get hot in summer. I think the flow through bins are interesting but I can't figure out what holds every thing in. Seems like stuff would just fall through the bars in the bottom.

Worm crate Update

Alittle update :

I have been feeding the worms some of my kitchen scraps, around 8 onces of various veggie scraps stored in the freezer (including garlic, onion and lemon - but only very little (as in less that an once of it). Before adding it to the big, i throw them in the food processor (with some water to make the grinding possible), spinkled some powdered eggshells, and add some dry bedding to absorb some of the extra moisture. For now the total is just about 8 lbs of food that was…
