I have a new redworm bin after the previous one failed [all the worms died]
I'm mainly here to ask a few questions to make sure my new bin is happy, healthy, and long lived since I already have a problem I'm rather worried about. Can I get some answers here in this thread, and if not could you direct me to the appropriate section?
First and foremost I've got these spider/mite things in my worm bin. Absolutely FULL of the buggers. They're reddish, slim bodies with long legs and there are eggs that are about the size of poppy-seeds all over the sides. Should I be concerned and if yes is there a way to get rid of them without killing my worms?
What do I need to be adding to an established bin to keep it happy? It mostly gets kitchen scraps [ie veggie peelings and fruits/veggies that are going bad] as well as stale/moldy bread when available.
Coffee grounds. We have an overabundance of them but I don't know how much is too much.
