Default Slaters in worm farm

I have a worm farm bursting with worms who seem very happy, but sharing
their abode a hundreds of slaters. They have just appeared over the last
few days or so. Are they a bad thing? If so, how can I get rid of them
while not hurting my worms?

Thanks in anticipation

Slaters are a type of lice, they won't eat your worms. What they do eat is
decaying vegetable matter.
