I am awaiting my worm's arrival. I have prepared shredded paper and gathered kitchen scraps. I have a container of baked and powdered egg shells. I am just about ready.
However, I look at my bin which is a 2x3 tank 18" deep and wonder if I want to drill holes in the bottom. I have heard that they are not actually necessary but so many people are doing it. For now I am going to bypass this step.

EH cocoons arrived late this morning - picked out 6 yellow cocoons, placed in 3 individual containers marked 1 - 2 - and 3 -- 6.5 US Quart or 6.1 Liter & placed 1 cocoon in number 1 bin and marked it 1, placed 2 cocoons in 2nd bin, marked 2, and 3 cocoons in 3rd marked number3, with appropriate amount of bedding first .
The goal is to hatch the cocoons removing all worms except for the same amount of original amount of cocoons. And watch time…

how does one start a new bin for mail-order Euro's cocoons (100) there will be nothing but the cocoons, no worms, so how does one start this bin -
what and when to add anything more -
what should be waiting as food for them as newly "born" -
what to feed them as they grow older -
call me an optimist - this is my experiment to see how long it takes, hatch-ling percentage, survival rate and population increases - as long as I am composting I need to do something…Continue

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.
are any of you doing Bentley's tiny tub two worm challenge?

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.
