A lot of the worms are whitish, as if there is some process going on inside of them. Below is the best pic I could get without a harsher light (0.jpg), but some worms are even more whitish than this.
This is after finding out that many of my worms have vanished, I presume died and dried up.
I've been feeding them only vegetables (cut up tiny), shredded cardboard bedding, leaves sometimes, sometimes eggshell powder. No protein or animal products.
Maybe these critters have something to do with it?
Last summer these cream coloured pinhead sized critters arrived, but they are gone now, at least in this form. (1.jpg)
And now there are many of these red pinhead sized critters. In one forum post I was told that they're soil mites. Sorry about the bad photo. If needed I can try to get a better one with more lighting. (2.jpg)
They were inside all winter. Maybe it got too dry, although I did spray. I'm clueless.
