care for your worms.
Your worms like it moist; never
let the worms dry out. Saturate the top 2 inches of the worm bed once a week with fresh water that has set out for at least 24 hours to let
the chlorine evaporate.
Never let them get over 80
degrees. If they do, run cold water through their bed every day until
their bed stays under 80 degrees. For freezing temperature if they are
outside in a compost pile, keep putting fresh food on top and it will heat
up and keep them warm. If they are in a container that you can pick up, put
them in the garage for the winter.
Worms like to eat vegetable
scraps, newspaper, eggshells, coffee grounds, cardboard, leaves, and small
amount of little grass clippings.
Stay away from meat, grease, oil,
citrus, cedar or pine trees

to be well ventilated. If in a compost pile that's fine. If in a box (wood
or plastic) lots of holes any size should be drilled in all 4 sides and
bottom. A tray or bucket should be underneath to catch any Worm Tea TM
