2. The worms that are in the ground, (night crawler types) usually go deeper as temps drop...

and the types that people have in boxes, (like me) need some form of heat if outside. They will perish if the surrounding temps get near freezing. I have a small heater in my shed with the worm box, and I don't harvest the casting before winter, as that becomes a sort of insulator for them. I have had my worm batch for five years now, and temperature extremes are always a threat.
