Hey Edd. I have a new wormery (Vertical stacking system) that i've had running for a month. I've tried to keep a 50:50 balance between bedding and food scraps. Unfortunately my tub has been besieged by ants over the last few days to the point where it looks like there are setting up home within the wormery. Ants this year have been a huge nuisance (coming up through the floor boards even!). Will they harm my newly homed worms - i know that they can be aggressive, especially if nesting.
Ive tried dousing wormery in water and situating it in a tub of water (which doesn't work as the tub sides touch the water bucket ever-so-slightly, which means the crafty ants still have a way in. I keep poking the top with a stick to disrupt them and then flicking as many ants of the wormery as possible but it's a losing battle.
I don't know what to try next. I hope my worms arent getting too stressed.
