Re: worm farm?
I tried it here, and it did next to nothing to the mites. It did give a
bad odor. Smelled like my grandmother's friends coming out of the Church
bingo on an early warm day of Spring, it did.
I was able to pinpoint yeast I was adding to the bread as a major factor
in mite production. I stopped using it, flooded the cultures with soapy
water, then started new cultures with the surviving worms. I've been
mite-free for two months now.
PS For the record, above is my new e-mail address.
