  I am a Vermiculturalist that assists the worms in their Vermicomposting, this activity typically involves breeding worms. Quick explanation: Vermiculture is the process of breeding worms.                           Vermicomposting is the active process of turning organic matter into vermicompost, taking 2 weeks to 2 months.                           Vermicompost is the byproduct of organic waste which has been transformed into a nutrient rich soil amendment          
  You picked up your Red Wigglers, Now What?       Place the worms on top of the bedding or under a light, they will immediately migrate down to get away from the light. Nights 1 and 2, they will attempt to leave when it gets dark. I recommend keeping a light on or near their new home and allowing some light to filter inside, this discourages them from migrating out as they are very sensitive to light.       It is important that the top of the soil stays wet to damp as this is where the…
  When it rains, get those buckets out to collect water for the worms.  DO NOT water worms with city water if it has chlorine in it. The chlorine is not beneficial to the worms or the microbes. This is another tidbit of information we received at the 2012 Vermiculture Conference in North Carolina and one small issue I have been wondering about. If you do not have rain, put your water out for 24 hours to dechlorinate before moistening your worms and bedding. We keep jugs of water handy at all times.
These florescent green worms with white v-shaped marks on the side become full size at 3-4" long. I discovered my first ever Hornworm last summer basking on a tomato leaf in the sun. They make their presence known by their black frass (droppings) on the foliage or around the base of the plant. The activity they seem to be most known by is their voracious appetite. They will munch entire leaves, small stems, eat parts of the immature fruit and can defoliate a plant in a few days. If caught early, your plant will recover. They may also be found…
The Hammerhead Flatworm kills and eats earthworms, exclusively! It is considered a parasite and eats the entire earthworm. Do not chop up this worm in trying to eradicate it as they will regenerate from the pieces and you will soon have many Hammerhead Flatworms instead of One. Eradication treatment methods include: salt, vinegar, and citrus oil applied directly on the Hammerhead flatworm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bipalium_kewense
