"Yeah still in Georgia. Seems to be a little bit colder up around Atlanta than down here.
In that room, looks like you are good to go for the Anc's. You getting them from Jerry?
Just curious but how are you watering all those trays, pump sprayer?"
"Certainly not an expert on them but the bedding and food can be the same as the ef's. Not sure on temp for max egg production, 70-75F seems to work well with all worms that I've seen. They die with temps under 50F though. Your temps…"
"I believe one or two months is a little to early, guess it would depend on the amount of worms and the depth of the bedding. It wouldn't hurt to turn the bedding to help the worms to work it.
I do like Tracy's read on it.lol"
"I know from personal experience that ef's can live with bedding temps of 38F & over 100F(air temp) in my garage. So you shouldn't have any problems with those temps. I just wouldn't place them in direct sunshine."
"Hopefully you still have some worms. They may have gone deeper or are in a corner to escape the heat, they may have also escaped. If it felt hot to your hand then chances are it was really hot.Reminds me of what an HVAC repairman told me when I told…"
"I would rather be safe than sorry if it did heat up.
Basically I mean letting it start to breakdown by adding water, turning the pile and aging it.. This will make it start breaking down and will also wash away the urine.
Here is that link…"
Thanks for welcome Michael,
Wish I was a Georgian, my wife and all her family are, but I originate from England, spent 3 years in Bermuda, and have been here for 3 years now, and loving every minute of it lol.
I lived in England all my life then left England 6 years ago, and lived in Bermuda for 3 years then got married and moved to Decatur. On weekends and sometimes a couple of other days in the week I'm down the farm looking after all the different animals and the Worms.
