What Temperature is Your Worm Bin?
My university started a worm composting bin this semester. Everything appeared to be working well, we had lots of worm castings and tea. Then something seemed to happen...
Our bin was normally kept at 70 deg. F, until recently the temperature raised tremendously, and we are not sure why. The worms all migrated towards the edge of the plastic bin! We tried turning the compost in hopes of it reducing the temperature; however, it doesn't seem to have made a difference.
What do we do? We are worried that our worms are going to die due to heat exhaustion!
