Hi there!

I have been noticing blue-tailed skinks hanging out in my worm bin. Will they eat the worms?

I think I can put together a makeshift screen cover for it if necessary... but if they are harmless to the worms, I'll just let the cute little guys hang out.

Thanks!

I would imagine they might eat maybe 2 a day, not enough to impact your population. They also eat bad bugs, so I'd recommend you leave them alone.

BTW, I lived in Huntersville (Birkdale) for 7 years)
