Mistakes made, first timer.
I started my worm cafe about a month or so ago. My other half took the frozen scraps (I read that if you freeze them, then defrost, they'll turn mushy and easier for the worms to eat) without defrosting and dumped them in top of my newspaper layers.
I didn't check it for a week, and now have an infestation (it's seriously disgusting) of tiny white maggots.
They don't look like Black Soldier Fly maggots.. so I'm assuming they're fruit fly maggots perhaps?
Now it smells and the worms are trying to escape/have disappeared.
So I added another tier of newspaper, soil and compost conditioner to the bottom, a safe place for remaining worms..
ALOT of compost conditioner to the infested one, placed on top. Turned the soil as much as I could without retching and added dry leaves, soil with some sand and paper. Then I added an empty tier with compost condition all over on top and left the lid half off to try dry it out a bit.
Are my worms going to be ok? Have I done the right thing?
