Tiny white bugs in my bin
I've noticed an increasing number of tiny, tiny white insects in my worm bin. Are these mites? They don't seem to be hurting anything. Am I wrong?
Also, about six weeks ago, I had a huge number of tiny flies (fruit flies?) swarming around the bin. I think this may have been the result of overfeeding (I communicate love with food). I added a lot of damp shredded newspaper and cardboard and stopped feeding for about a month. The number of flies decreased quite a bit, but there are still some present. I've stopped feeding my little buddies fruit and veggie scraps and are only giving them coffee grounds, thinking that maybe the flies don't like coffee as much as leftover salad. Does anyone out there have any advice for me?
I've been reading in the GW forums for quite some time now, and I'm excited to finally be joining in the discussion!
