Quite an interesting thread you had there!
Probably over 1.5 half ago. There is the odd worm (less than 10 in all three levels) in the bin and some very thin white ones that looks like Japanese rice noodles. I think it got too wet and that caused the population to crash. I tried to add kitchen paper towels, shredded newspaper and cardboard but instead of helping out it only formed clusters instead that didn't break down properly.
My compost never looked as good as yours. Having quite a lot of half broken down stuff.
The kind of worms I have is dendrobaena. I should also mention that I drink quite a lot of loose leaf tea and close to 50% of the stuff I add is probably tea leaves.
I shall see if my colleague who has an allotment might know someone with a worm supply
