Have been spending lots of time trying to make sure my exterior bins stay cool. The larger wooden bins seem to be doing ok as long as I make sure to keep them hydrated & covered. Had to put a tarp over a few to keep the sun off them even though they are under shade trees, but they are fine now. Unfortunately, I don't have a basement, so the 3 smaller plastic worm towers are now in my crawlspace. Slightly cramped & kind of a pain to get to to feed, but at least my crawlspace stays really cool. I'm sure my Euros are much happier now or at least their food seems to be disappearing faster & they appear to be more active. Hoping this is as bad as it going to get this Summer. If not, August is going to be a real bear.

Hoping everyone else is getting along fine.

All of my bins are outside, on the N side of the house.

We've had some very hot 109*-111* days recently. Today, we're getting a break of only about 100*. It actually does feel lots cooler. I've got burlap over my bins and dampen them every day. So far, so good.
