I'm afraid I've lost most of my worms this summer from 3 weeks of heat. I also have a bunch of black soldier fly larva that are invading.
Oh,well, lots of worm compost under the trees on our property. I'll get some new red worms again when it cools off.

Reqs vary. 1:2 all the way to 1:5. I go full strength sometimes and they do fine.

Depends on how many heads you have to serve.

The only time I've burnt anything with tea was when I added a "compost starter" that contained a lot of organic fertilizers. If it's just plain tea, I don't think your dilution rate matters that much.
