Hi Marcia –

Since worms are quite sensitive to light, noise and temperature, a corner of the basement or garage often works best for their home. They thrive at temperatures between 55°-77°F (13°-25°C) which means that most basements should fit the bill. If left outside or in a cold garage there are a few things you can do to prevent raising a bunch of worm-sicles. Mary Applehof has several good recommendations over at WormWoman.com:

Hope this helps!
