Ants in my worm bin
We are located in central Oregon, near Bend. Local black ants just moved in, but the worms seem to be coexisting so far.
How do I increase the moisture of the worm bin safely to evict the ants but not hurt the worms? I have a LOT of baby worms. Will the ants eat them?
I tried to send pictures, but they are too big.

View of worm bins
This is a view of my worm bins. They both have ants, but I have not tried adding water yet.
The bin on the right is very much alive and active. The bin on the bottom left still shows no evidence of worm activity. I find that odd because they both were equally active when we left last summer. We took a gamble leaving them exposed all winter, and I was excited to see so did survive the harsh winter.
The pink bin on top is our travel bin: we took it with us in our rv. It does not have any ants.
The blue bins on the top are isolated worms in clean dirt/coffee grounds for show & tell.
Thank you for your advice!
