Just started a WF and am looking for hints and tricks. My four-tray WF sits outside on back patio under shadecloth. Killed off my first batch last month, probably too much food and heat from composting. Started with a new batch last week and they seem to be doing much better. looking forward to using castings in my container garden.

Hi Nic...I don't think there's a fool-proof way to prevent this. Eventually the worms will eat through the newpaper and head to the bottom. If the worms didn't like it down there they wouldn't go. Every day or 2 I check to make sure everyone's OK. I usually have about 1/2 dozen worms with a bit of castings. Once and awhile I might scoop them up and put them with the rest of the gang. It's almost like there are a couple of rebels in the pack that want to do their OWN thing :)

Yep, i put paper down when I first started mine. Later that night I had worms in my drain area. They went right through the paper.
I usually check mine also and normally have 2-12 worms down there. The seem to find there way back up easily enough.

well, i put my last bin into the first box, and it was quite wet, so most that went down there drowned.

Have you tried keeping the spigot open? That will drain any extra liquid plus I've started adding more cardboard in with my scraps. My bin is a lot dryer than used to be a sluggy mess.

i have the spigot open now- it only really flooded the first day, and i kinda dried it today w/ newspaper, so thats fixed!
