Help! Worms commiting suicide
I've been trying to start a vermicompost system to process the massive amounts of poop my dogs produce. I bought a worm farm stacking system and I've killed my second (expensive) set of worms.
The first set died when they all drowned to death during a torrential rainstorm that I wasn't in town for.
I just got the second set last week and when I went to put more food in I found them all in the worm stew catch basin, drowned to death. It looks like they dug through the paper towel that was blocking the holes in the bottom and the entire colony just fell or wrigged through the holes into their own tea.
How can I prevent this from happening on my third set of worms? I'd really like to get this project going, but I've manage to kill nearly $100 worth of worms so far.
