I have used the bedding supplied by Worms Direct but some of the worms have still crawled, why?

Crawling can also start for other reasons, one of the main ones is a lack of air in the bin, this is particularly a problem with deep, plastic bins, even worse when they have a clamp on lid designed to stop them getting out!

Other things cause worms to crawl, weather conditions, particularly when wet and the pressure is low, vibration (you may not even feel it) adding too many worms to start the bin, unhealthy conditions developing in the bin, nasty things being added as food, these are the most common.
