Hot Worms

Remember to keep your Worms  WET & COOL in HOT weather.  Be extra diligent in the plastic bins as they may absorb the outside heat and cook your worms. Keep these bins in a cool place, elevate for better air circulation and open up the lid for better air circulation. The wood bins and barrels we use are not as prone to cooking the worms in hot weather. Keep the soil as wet as a damp sponge (until you squeeze it and 1-2 drops of water are squeezed out).

This reminder is referring to weather above 75 degrees. Worms prefer temperatures of 55-75 degrees, they are most active in this temperature range.
