Post Juvenile Grubs crawling out of biopod en-masse
Good Morning Folks, Just new to biocomposting. My pod has been going very well but started yesterday lots of juvenile grubs are crawling out. I raked around in the pod this morn, there is plenty of food, it is quite moist but no leachate coming out the opened drain sytem. I am wondering if the PH may be wrong? Need advice please.

Regards

Phil in Australia

Lucky welcome to our forum :) If you'd like you can introduce yourself here (link).

Is your pod in direct sunlight or overheating?

Thanks for your reply. Yes, Painted the pod black to keep light out. Partial sunlight and 94' F most days.

Regards

Phil

It might be getting to hot when it's in the direct sunlight. Shading it might help.

(moving this to the cultivation section)
