baby worms climbing up on the wall of the bin
I bought 1 lb of redworms about 4 months ago. I put them in the rubbermaid tote. My tote is deep (about 2 feet, but the bedding is only 1 foot deep), I drilled about 20 holes right above the bedding on all four sides and 10 holes at the bottom. They have started to reproduce which is very exciting. I've done some research myself and I know they are really the red worm babies (long with a little pink color). I recently noticed quite a few red worm babies each morning climbing up on the wall of the tote and under the lid. I noticed some dried up ones as well. I use shredded news paper, peat moss, dried pines and coir moss for bedding. I don't think I have too much water because not too much water came out at the bottom holes. I could have too much food, but not a lot. The adult worms seem to be happy where they are at, only babies try to climb up. I kept them in my yard under the fence with no sun. I think I'm doing everything right, so I'm not sure why the baby worms want to climb up.
