Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums
Well, Just got the worms this week and put into the bin. They keep crawling out at night and of course dry out before they escape the house. Currently, the bin is made up of coir and paper and made sure it is moist but not wet. The bin was setup a couple of days prior to the worms arrival. Just can't figure out why they would want to get out every night unless PH problem or getting to cold. Any ideas anyone?
Totally normal, Jim. New worms wander. Did you put any food in there? A handful of compost (worm or not) can also help. Throw some oatmeal in and let it mold.
