Possible mass death in the wormery - Help.
Compost worm on the surface of a worm bin
My worm farm has been successfully producing tea and compost for over 10 years and we've not really altered our feeding regime. In the last 2 days our worms and the mix has gone from vigorously active and working their way through everything in double quick time, to an inert, smelly dense mush, with very little sign of life. I've drawn off about 6 litres of tea, which may have been backing up into the middle layer of 3 to see if that helps drainage - I've occasionally (inadvertently) allowed the liquid bin to back up, but never with this effect. We're also in a bit of a heatwave (shade temps 35 degC plus) and just recently there has been some minor ant activity In and around they bin. Any advice gratefully received please.
