Cultivating Worms, and UNFORTUNATELY Cultivating Termites too, ughhh...

by Yoseph



First, I want to thanks about the availability of this website and especially to Pauly. I've learned a lot of knowledge about worm from this.

I have friends with worms about a year I think. The worms had cultivated. But more of them had died too, hahahaha. But never mind because I've learned and learn and always learn with this.

In this time I want to share about my 'little' experience about the appearance of worm foe especially are termites. Pauly has explained in very clearly.

In my wood worm bin, I found a lot of termites. I think these termites don't disturb the worms directly. But, termites eat the worms foods, and definitely I'm not cultivate termites of course, hahahaha.

My solutions are:
1. Separate my worms from their castings and termites, I wash my worms also with water and tell to them: "It's time to go to bathroom my sons" hahahahaha.
2. I install the legs of the bin and put each leg in bowl, I fill the bowls with oil from motor oil replacement that are usually throw away.

After feed my worms bin in a month later on their new home, I look at the castings are free from termites. Not only that, I heard voice say to me: "Thanks papa, now we can eat the foods without sharing with my foe" hahahahahaha.
