    Default RED WORMS

    Any one ever buy them off the internet.? They seem cheaper than bait shops. I found 500 for $22. That seems to be a good price. Just wondering if you can keep them for a couple months. Thanks

    I just ordered 500 online from uncle jims worm farm. I had success with my my bucket farm keeping the nightcrawlers from my yard and leftover bait shop worms from fishing trips alive for a year now. They were only 29 bucks

    Basically 2 5 gallon buckets with small holes drilled in the bottom of the inside bucket for drainage. Keep ot on my front porch and just sprinkle the top with coffe and cornmeal once a week.

    If you are using this method be sure to place some fine mesh screening at the bottom of your five gallon bucket. I also feed mine tea bags, shredded newspaper, sliced apples or lettuce and yellow corn meal. Keep the mixture damp and they will readily reproduce. This method is for RED WIGGLER WORMS ONLY! If you try to do this with night crawler worms it will NOT work for them. You will end up with a stinky and a smelly mess of useless worms. I grow enough wigglers for fishing as well as for putting in my garden.

    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. John 15:7 Jesus says..." ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

    What type of soil do you use in these buckets? I would think regular soil out of the garden would compact and become hard.
