How to Raise|
|Easy ways to raise Redworms|
Feed for Worms:
Note: Feed lightly as overfeeding can result in uneaten food which can spoil and turn acidic. If the bedding is too acidic it can harm or even kill the worms. Also a lot of feed (especially if buried) can go into a heat which can kill worms. (This may be okay during times of a hard freeze if the feed or fresh manure is limited to a discrete trench within the bed to provide some heat.) To control acid add egg-shells and maybe lime. When using lime be sure to use pure pulverized limestone, as hydrated/slacked (a.k.a. builder's lime) or chemically treated lime that is often used in gardens can harm or possibly kill the worms. You can use Borax. Just tell them what you really need at any feed-store. You can get pH test strips and meters at most garden centers.
