Depending on where you are, worm issues vary from none (droughty) to significant (normal) back to none (it rained but management has been sound). The constant challenge in Queensland is deciding what is “normal” and what is not – and how to manipulate management accordingly.

South Australia

Beneficial rains have continued.  Worm burdens are still low(ish), mainly due to previous dry spells.  Keep monitoring, because the situation will probably change.
