Mixed Worms (Non-Red Wigglers escaping)
I attended my city's vermicomposting workshop yesterday to get my bin kit set up and learn how to manage the worm bin. I've been researching a quite bit beforehand.
The instructor purchased the red wigglers for each one of us. She said these bags tend to have some different worms and bugs in them. That's fine with me.
However, one thing that bothers me is when she said if I see any escaping worms, they're not red wigglers. She said don't bother putting them back in the bin because they'll keep trying to escape. Throw them to the fields.
That bothers me because so far what I've seen in this board is some red wigglers will try to escape if they're placed in new bin until they get settled.
I'm new at worm business so I couldn't tell them apart if they're not wigglers... I'm getting conflicted message here. So far most worms that climbed up to escape all looks like red wigglers so I just put them back in bin, instead of throwing them out.
