Problem with my worm farm! All worms died!
I recently replaced the old bedding in my bin with store-bought compost.
Every single worm I had died within a day. Do you perhaps know what the
reason for this is?
I am sorry to hear that you lost all your worms. Did you find any remains of worms on the surface of your worm bedding? I suspect that the compost you bought might have been to high in pH and your worms had no way to escape the acidic environment.
I am not sure why you replaced the bedding we supplied but I suggest in future to contact your nursery and ask them to test any compost that you want to use as bedding material for your worm farm. A material that is usually safe to use if you want to start up a worm farm is torn up wet newspaper strips.
For more information about starting up a worm farm go to the site map of my website www.worm-composting-help.com where you will find many articles that will assist you to successfully recycle food waste and other organic materials with the help of earthworms.
