Worm Farming Mistake No. 1Perhaps the biggest, most common, most frequent , most easily avoidable mistake made by the novice and established worm farmer alike is:
Not Paying Attention!
Not paying attention to the worm bedding, it's moisture content and it's condition (i.e. you can make mud pies from your worm bedding.)
Not paying attention to pests (i.e. raccoons are setting up shop near your worm house, ready for a juicy worm feast.)
Not paying attention to the ambient atmosphere of your worm beds (i.e. someone is operating a chain saw, jack hammer, and saw mill 2 feet away from your worm bed.)
Not paying attention to the worms' health (i.e. worms are packing their bags for a mass worm crawl as soon as it gets dark.)
Not paying attention to the weather (i.e. there's a F5 tornado with a forecast-ed path directly over your worm farm.)
Not paying attention to EVERYTHING.Next..... more worm farming mistakes that affect you business success.
