Too many worms? Worms are balling up!?
A ball of compost worms
Hi - I recently started a worm bin and the farm I ordered the worms from screwed up my order a few times, so to “make up for it” they sent me 3 lbs of worms instead of 1. The worms have only been in the bin for about a week, and I’ve given them a few handfuls of food and coir/paper bedding. I also put some water in when they first arrived because the bags they were in were almost like sawdust — super dry. I put extra cardboard and paper on top to make sure it wasn’t too wet. Today I noticed a huge ball of them on one side, and barely any elsewhere. Not sure where to go from here but I don’t want them to die in there! Any thoughts you may have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
