10 Worm Multi-Level Experiment-update 03-23-2017
Two Week update with Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawlers
Well, it’s been two weeks since we started the 10 worm multi-level experiment with Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawlers. Since we started with juvenile worms we were not really expecting much change this soon. And, with only 10 worms in each small bin, they had not consumed much of their food or bedding yet. No Cocoons were found, but a few of the worms had developed a clitellum.
We did add a big hole in the center of the lid to increase air flow. As a result, it did seem like the bedding was a little bit dryer than we want so some water was added to each. The worms all found near the food source in each of the six small containers. Both, the Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawlers were looking good.
