RED CALIFORNIAN WORM - was launched in 1959 as a result of breeding work in the United States. Unlike their wild relatives, which give only 4...6-fold reproduction, California worm is able to produce annually more than 500-fold reproduction, but this requires optimal conditions. An average of 150 times per year

Preparation of substrate

Vermiculture begins with preparation of the substrate as food for the worms. Requirements for the substrate:
must be homogeneous;
must not be corrosive and toxic;
preparation substrate must be fast enough (from a few days in summer and up to months in the cold season);
should not "burn out", i.e. to have enough fodder for the worms;

Preparation of the substrate in the room: waste (manure and other) spread thickness of 20 - 30 cm, close the foil is heated to a temperature of 55 C, kept at this temperature the day. At the end of the day received a lot of lay in a heap, to bring the humidity up To 80 C, and the temperature was lowered to 30 C.
Further weight is used as the substrate, but in the process packagings shall be filled to not more than 5 cm thick.
Design fruit boxes allows you to use them racking way. For sample adults, the worms out of the box with recycled substrate effectively used boxes of different sizes, i.e., in a box larger with the processed substrate is inserted into a box smaller (possibly trimmed to size) with a prepared substrate. Now for a quick conclusion of livestock Californian worm.
If Your production is focused on the production of vermicompost, and You do not choose adult worms for fishing, the adults will be about 25%. To rejuvenate the population Californian worm and to save more food for the fry,it is recommended to choose the number of adults in California worm about 20% of fishing.

The adaptation. At the time of adaptation of livestock Californian worm to the new waste (transition from mullein on spinak, litter, etc., the use of water from another source), most of the adult worms may die, not coping with the new food. This is subject to any species and subspecies of worms. However, juveniles can easily adapt to new food, begin to Mature and breed - the adaptation is completed. The process of adaptation to the new waste may take 2 - 4 months. If the worms after moving to the same food, the adaptation takes place with minimal losses.

In vermiculture, when possible death of adult worms, it is important to have a large number of young that in the transition to a new food does not die, which explains the name: vermiculture and uterine Californian worm.

Check substrate testing.
1. After lowering the temperature inside the collar, around 40 , start to biological testing.
2. On the substrate populated with him in the worm put up to 5 cm of freshly prepared substrate. After 1-2 days check the presence of the worm prikormochnoy new substrate. The presence of the worm indicates the suitability of a new substrate for processing. The absence of a worm indicates poor preparation by fermentation of the substrate.

The worms can also be used as feed for different animals (fish, amphibians and reptiles, and some birds and rodents).
In the diet "Californian" includes:

The remains of tea and coffee;
Rotten tomatoes and other vegetables;
Banana skins;
Peel of oranges, mandarins, lemons;
Bread (old, moldy);
Cheese, cereals;
Fruit rotten;
Grass and leaves.

You should not feed worms meat!!!.

As for frequency of feeding, it is necessary to feed the worms twice a week. Also, make sure that all food was eaten. That is, in fact, that's all.

One hectare is not ruined by chemicals and tillage of the soil may contain from 1 to 200 million individuals earthworms, and the weight of their biomass varies from 2 to 5 tons per hectare. If you take into account that the worm per day flows through your body is equal to its own weight, the weight of the earth with organic, with an average weight of a worm in half a gram and number 100 PCs/sq m (1 million hectares), it turns out that for a day they passed through 50 g of land per square meter, or half a ton of land per hectare. Considering the fact that the activity of the worms in the middle zone is 200 days per year, per season, this number increases to 10 kg/sq m, or 100 t/ha - no comments! Especially valuable is the fact that the worms absorb and digest not only soil, but also bacteria, algae, fungi and their spores, protozoan organisms of the animal world (including nematodes!) is real destinatary and orderlies, OZDOROVITEL soil, decontamination of pathogenic soil microflora. Thanks to the activity of earthworms faster "see" compost, turning after their processing in the loose, friable,
