Red wiggles pushing dirt out of tray
(Lakeland, Florida, U.S.)
I have 8 months time and obviously no experience with worms ( other than for fishing). Now I want to make worm poop for me, family, and friends.
I have a Worm Factory 360 3 trays. I have put a layer of weed guard between the ladder and the first tray. They are still pushing dirt out at the bottom of the bottom tray where plastic is bowing on all 4 sides.
Why do they want and are so persistent to do this? Food is shredded paper, peat moss, ground egg shells, bread, honey nut cherrios. Some potato peals, lettuce, celery. Any advise is appreciated.
