Where should a worm bin be kept?
Worms are most active when temperatures are moderate, about 55 to 77 degrees. If the worm bin is kept outdoors, it will need to be insulated during cool weather with something like straw bales, carpet, mounded soil or ridged foam around the top of the bin. In summer, a shady spot will keep the worms from becoming overheated. A worm bin may be kept inside under a kitchen sink, in a laundry room or in a garage.
