Tips For Successful Worm Farming

Tip #1:  Never Over-Feed Your Worms.

Never feed your worms more grain than they can eat in a 24 hour period.  The grain will sour and create an acid condition in the bedding, which will make your worms sick and can kill them.

Clean off any uneaten grain before adding more.  If there are "left-over's",  feed a little less.

Manure, however, can be an all-you-can-eat buffet.  So long as there is room in the bedding for the worms to escape any heating of the manure, you can "pile it on", so to speak. 

Coming:  "Use this product every time you feed and you'll grow healthier fatter worms faster."

Tip #2: Use VermaPlex™ When You Feed.

Worms use microbes to digest their food.  That's why horse manure is such a perfect food for worms. Horses also use microbes to digest their food and fresh horse manure still has active microbes contained in it. 

VermaPlex ™ is a liquid soil inoculant used in gardening that's made
from - get this - EARTHWORM CASTINGS.  It is positively  teeming with microbes which make nutrients more readily available to plants.  In the completed circle that is so ecologically beautiful, this liquid fertilizer made from earthworm castings, can also be used to help earthworms digest their food and make, you guessed it, earthworm castings. ...And so on, and so on....

When you feed your worms, add microbes  by spraying VermaPlex™ over the food. You'll reduce problems such as mites and "sour" bedding.  AND, your worms will be happier, healthier, and FATTER.  Click here to order VermaPlex™.  (Learn more about VermaPlex™ and organic gardening.)

Tip #3 Keep Your Worms From Crawling Because of the Cold.

With the cold weather, your worms will want to crawl if they aren't located in an area that maintains above 40 degrees.

Keep a close eye (or finger) on the moisture content of the bedding.  You'll want to keep your bed dryer so the worms will not get as cold.  The wetter the bedding, the colder it feels.  Be careful not to get it too dry - test it daily as the dryer humidity can wick away the moisture quickly.

If you can, heat the room to maintain above 40 (50 is even better), or they will most certainly crawl.  Leave extra lights on to discourage them. Incandescent bulbs will put out more heat.

Tip #4 Keep Your Worms Protected From the Heat.

In the heat of Summer,  you must monitor the temperature of your outside beds.  Locating your beds in shady areas, natural or man-made, is essential. 

Also, maintain the moisture levels of the bedding to keep your little flock cool.  If the bedding dries out, which it will do more easily in Summer, it will get warmer.  Even if the outside temperatures are in the 90's, if the bedding is shaded and moist, it will remain cool. And so will your worms.
