Re: worm farm?
I think that those small black midges are fungus gnats, which feed on
decaying material. The best way to deal with them is to prevent them
from colonizing in your worm culture (cover the culture with a very fine
screen or render the culture container air-tight to prevent females from
laying eggs in your worm culture). When I was raising some plants in
small pots, I was able to get rid of the infestation by decreasing the
moisture slightly and destroying the emerging adults before they had a
chance produce eggs for the next generation.
