Any tricks to finding cuccoons and whether worms are eating?
I've been small-scale worm-growing for just a month or so. So far I've not found any cuccoons, nor have I been able to tell whether they are eating the food that I put in or not.
Any tips on how to find cuccoons and how to evaluate food consumption under the top layer of bedding without totally disturbing the worms?
I have some fishing bait/tackle shop-purchased red worms and Canadian Night Crawlers in two shallow plastic bins to start.
I've been distributing coffee grounds under the top layer of shredded newspaper bedding. Recently I made a trench across the middle and put canned pumpkin in the trench, hoping that it would be obvious that the worms were burrowing thru and thereby eating it.
