My bin is open bottom and on the ground.As I looked in today, I came upon an area between layers of burlap that was loaded with newborn squirm. I would estimate 300 or more in a 2 square foot area. I was like a proud Papa watching the little white buggers take their first squirm! Do any of you notice a bloom like this where many cocoons hatch simultaneously? I think it is a sign of optimum conidtions, but what are they? I thought my bin was on the dry side so I removed the lid yesterday and allowed 1/4" of rain to enter. Coincidence? I have noticed this 2 other times, several weeks after overfeeding and overheating the bin. Does stressing the system cause a cocoon bloom???
I am going to look for some cigars with a little ring that says "IT'S A BOY/GIRL"
