If a worm dies, do the other worms eat that worm?

The short answer is yes. More accurately microbes begin the decomposition process and the other worms feed on those microbes, inadvertently taking in bits of the dead companion.

You can find answers to questions just like this and so many more in the Worm Farming Alliance.
