John I will have to try some wood boxes.I didn't know there was such thing as worm bedding.That I will have to look for as well. O0 O0

You're right about the moisture content.I mist the soil with a sprayer,just enough to turn the soil dark.
So far the worms have staye alive and the fish seem to like them too  ;D ;D
Normally, plastic is the wrong thing to keep the worms in for long term. They will die. Wallyworld and sporting goods stores carry worm bedding. The stores we sold worms to used peat moss.

Wood boxes seem to asorb some of moisture when there is too much moisture. We NEVER added water to the bedding. Also, water will settle on the bottom of plastic and styrofoam boxes and kill the worms.

Maybe I have been lucky to have the worms stay alive in the plastic.I got to thinking about it and with the amount of wood laying around I am going to make a "worm box" later.

I got the soil damp as I read you don't want the soil completely dry but being on the more dry side is alot better than soil being too wet.

I am going to get some bedding and get the woo boxs made up.Thanks for the info  O0

your mission if you choose to accept it, is to go through the boiler maker to get to the Gut Pile Style

Hey would burying the wood box in the ground keep it cool enough through the summer?

It should, as long as the crawlers can't get out and it's in the shade. Your basement is usually a good place to keep them, as well as an old frig.
