Q. How do I look after my worms during hot weather?
A. There are a number of very simple things you can do to ensure your worms survive the summer:
- Your worm farm must be set up in a cool, shady area, where it will not get any sun on it at all.
- Make sure you don’t have a build up of uneaten food scraps in the worm farm. A lot of organic matter together will generate heat as it’s breaking down.
- Leave the lid off the worm farm to prevent hot air building up inside.
- Place a solid block of ice in your worm farm in the morning. Have an ice cream container, or a number of bottles of water, in the freezer ready to go.
