Help with African Nightcrawlers
It would be very nice for me to have a year round supply of large fat worms for fish bait along with any VC that might become available.
I am told that the largest locally available worm that is practical for home breeding is the AN but that one major drawback might be that this strain tends to want to constantly travel at night. And this makes them difficult to contain in a typical home type bin.
I am looking at a flow thru bin in say a 32 gal trash can on wheels. I hope it would not be necessary but lights on a timer could be placed in the top and bottom to discourage attempts to stray at night.
Being the Compost Wacko that I am, I should be able maintain a suitable home and micro- herd for the AN but their tendency to wander might make the whole project impractical. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
