When raising a small number in the house should also pay attention to technique. It is possible to get the river pond mud along with the worms. Place in a pot or glassware. It is best to feed with river water. If using tap water, it is recommended to dry the water for 2-3 days to remove bleaching powder and other substances. Change the water once a day. To prevent water from freezing in winter, place a damp red cloth over the tools to keep them moist.

It is best to use a container with a large air contact area. Because when raising worms, they will only come to the surface to breathe. Therefore, if the contact area is not large enough, it is feared that some animals will not be able to surface and die.

A light source is essential for raising worms. You must not turn off the lights or use a small light source. Such as 5W night light at night. Because worms are very lazy to breathe, if there is no light source, it will easily die the next day.

There should be specialized pots. Most use rice bran, sawdust, banana peel, bagasse, silt, pigeon droppings as feed. Worms only kept in the family can be fed with yeast dough soaked in water. But the quantity must be controlled.

Notes on how to raise worms

When the number of threadworms increases, it should be harvested in time and dried. Or freeze. In late autumn and winter, their fertility is greatly reduced. When worms cannot be seen in the water tank only in winter, do not add more water to the tank. Because they all hide in the green algae. You can place the water tank in a sunny room or near a radiator. In the spring, when the indoor temperature rises, the red worms will reappear. When the temperature rises above 28°C at room temperature, they will begin to breed.
