My Worms Are Balling Up
I have had my worm composter about a month - worms arrived in excellent condition and within a couple of hours seemed at home.
My problem, if it is one, started about 10 days ago - approximately 1/2 of the group are doing worm things in the composter and about a fist size of them are balling up. At first I thought they were feeding, and then realized that was not the case.
I have called the company that makes the vermicomposter and they did not know the answer. I have spent alot of time looking for the answer - if I am doing something wrong, I would like to correct it sooner rather than later. The worms are being fed apples, pears, soaked egg cartons, leftover bread, plus much more (in the appropriate amounts).
The compost appears to have the proper moisture level, and I am concerned that the ones in the ball are not eating, since each time I check them, there they are; the ball does not seem to be getting smaller, just crawling over each other. Help!
