SO many white worms!

i bought a white worm culture last spring and they are multiplying very well. too well...

i have way too many now! way too many for the number fish i have.

any suggestions on what i can do with the extras?

i guess putting them in my compost outside is not a good idea with winter coming?

they are starting to try to leave the container they are in. i am nervous now to open it to get them out to feed the fish!

i have offered everyone i know with fish (2 whole people...) some worms but they don't want them!

make a bowl of mini-spaghetti? use them as shoe-lases on baby shoes? freeze them and use them as mini stilts?

Could sell them on the SnS to other Canadian members. I bet you'd get several interested folks.

If that doesn't work out, you could certainly freeze them for later use.

Hi mindy,

I have kept WW for years; if you want you the population growth to slow, feed less.
