The Great Escape

Our worms keep escaping. In quite large quantities. We have put a large tray underneath the wormery so we can catch them when they wriggle out but they are obviously not happy in their new home yet. Maybe they need more exposure to light to help them burrow down but we don't really want to keep leaving the lid off. The only other thing I can think is that their bedding is not moist enough, but it seems OK as far as we can tell. Does anyone have any ideas?

  1. Oh dear I haven't got any ideas other than what you have already mentioned, just want to wish you luck with them soon.

    Oh! wait I just thought; how about getting a fine mesh screen or piece of cloth and covering the escapee area (you didn't say whether it was from the top so I'm just assuming that it is), yes so cover and tie into place with a large piece of esticated band/ material, before applying the lid.

    Hope this helps and like I said before, good luck :)
