worms going wild!
I have been successfully composting with red wigglers for one year. I use a wooden bin 42" L x 16" W x 18" High. Bedding is shredded cardboard and newspaper piled about 9" deep throughout the bin. I started with 2000 worms but now have MANY thousands more. If I close the lid so that it is dark inside dozens of worms emerge from the bedding and begin crawling everywhere in an attempt to escape. It's gross! The bedding's moisture is good and the worms have plenty of air. I am lacking enough food at the moment but that has never caused this problem before. If I keep a light on them they stay buried but as soon as the light goes off they begin coming out. Any suggestions?
