Worm help--mass exodus

Posted by triciagrace07 9 (My Page) on

I've had my worm bin up and running for months. All has gone well till I harvested my first tray. Now for some reason my worms are migrating down into my drip pan and I've lost probably 100+. Not sure why. Should I just start my bin over and throw away the two processing trays? I'd hate lose the worm eggs and poop but I'm not sure why they are jumping ship....any thoughts?

Update: moved my bin out of garage and the worms stopped must of gotten too hot :-(
