Worm Farm Mites


In the 7 years I have been worm farming I have never come across this before. Mites in one of my 2 worm farms. From what I have learnt this is not unusual as there are quite a few different composting bugs and such in the farms. I have had different bugs but not mites.

I have been told humidity will encourage the mites and we have had our share of that lately. So this maybe why I am able to see the mites more easily.

Some of the creatures you may find in the worm farm include:

* Moulds and Fungi
* Mites
* Spring tails
* Pot worms
* Sow or pill bugs
* Fruit Flies
* Soldier fly larvae
