Dead red wigglers, lots of little white ones
I am new to vermincomposting - am working on my first bin now. It is in a sterilite drawer with holes drilled in the bottom.
Things seemed to be going well, but then I got fruit flies and figured maybe I was overfeeding. I went away for a week and the worms had lots of food before I left.
I have now returned, and see that my red wigglers appear to be dead, and that some tried to crawl out of the bin and dried up & died too. But it is FULL of little white ones. They are only about a half inch long and I am not sure if they are baby wigglers or potworms. The stuff at the bottom of the bin is MUCH wetter than it was before I left. It seems that a bit drained out the bottom but not much (a pool of about 5 inches across).
Appreciatively seeking suggestions and advice-- what has gone wrong, and what to do next?
