Charlie – I can only tell you that I just got back to my worms after about 5 weeks of holiday.  My worms are in plastic bins in a basement where the temp stays around 18 – 20 degrees Celsius.  I gave them a bunch of food (dry leaves and kitchen scraps) before leaving.  I just checked on them and they seem to be OK.  Nine weeks is quite a while.   Give them a bit more food than you normally would before you leave.  Seems to me they should probably survive (perhaps not thrive…but at least still be there when you get back) as long as:  1) they stay moist enough (usually not a problem in plastic bins), 2) the temperature stays within their growth limits.  Good luck and enjoy the holiday.  Philip Rock
