Almost cooked some worms.

hummersteveJune 22, 2014

When I did a harvest the other day in separating the worms of which Im guessing maybe 200 worms give or take a thousand. I forgot and left them in my garage overnight gets pretty hot out there lately 90+ so the next day when I remember I forgot, Im thinking oh boy this is really gonna stink. Surprisingly they all seemed alive, hard to believe. But I didnt have a cover on it so they did get some air even if very hot air.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

90 won't kill them, but if they lived in those temps, the rates of food intake, reproduction, and excrement output would be WAY less than when they're feeling good.

Only time I killed some was when a small bin was left if a closed up car all day. I coulda fried bacon almost on the dash.
