My wormery is full of ants. How do I get them out without losing all the worms? Or should I dig the contents into the garden and start again?

I would just leave them and you`ll have fab compost !
They move on in the autumn .

I agree, they're not a problem in your garden. As long as they stay away from your house!

if you do want to get rid of them, greengardener sell ant mematodes. completely kills ant nests naturally and safely (for animals and kids) but the most damage they do is to undermine roots, which is not really a problem in a wormery
