Red Wigglers that don't wriggle
I see in several posts from time to time comments about worms being very active and wriggly. I have bought Red Wigglers for bait before and they were hard to get on a hook because of all their wriggling.
The Ef in my bins have never been active. They are quite sluggish. I have had them for 3.5 months. Started them in a Gusatino WF,added the 2nd tray to GWF 6 weeks later and moved all the contents of the GWF into a large flow through bin three weeks after that. They have never been wiggly worms. There have been times when conditions were too dry, too wet, over fed, not over fed etc. The ambient temperatures here in NW FL have varied from a couple of weeks of heat wave temps hovering near 100F to low to mid 70s, but mostly mid 80s. I have put bottles of frozen water in the bin to cool it down and about the only effect of that has been one worm died from coming into direct with the frozen bottle.
Under what conditions do red wigglers become active enough to deserve their name?
