Do Worms suffer in high temperatures?

Worm Farm FAQon December 10th, 2009No Comments
We are often asked about whether worms can tolerate temperature extremes.

Composting worms will tolerate a vast array of temperatures  from approximately 10-35 degrees Celsius. Once the temperature reaches above 35 degrees some worm

farmers choose to  hose down the farm (making sure the tap is turned on to allow the liquid to drain out).  this will decrease the core temperature of the worm farm.  I
wouldnt do this too often as you dont want to create a “soggy” worm farm.

In very cold temperatures, cover the system with some old underfelt or  blankets to keep warmth in. Feed the worms more nitrogen rich food, which will create more
warmth as it decomposes.
