I bought the wriggly wrigglere can of worms a few years ago and last year decided to restart it so I ordered the worms and supplement food treat and got it going again, I've had gallons of "worm tea" for fertiliser so hopefully a good year for tomatoes ....
But I have a problem with flies, I don't add anything citrus or any onion it is wet and smelly despite having a tarpaulin over and I have bought Diatomaceous Earth to puff around the inside which hasn't made a lot of differnce. I am now adding shredded. Paper to try and soak up the moisture.
Any ideas what else I can try to get rid of the flies without harming the worms ? They seem perfectly happy in the bottom tray and survived the mild winter In South Wales
