Another way of harvesting microworms


I had been of the scrape-them-off-the-sides-with-your-finger school, but 
recently I found a better way.

I cut a piece of plastic from an old milk bottle, about two inches by one and 
a half.  I lay it against the side of the container at a sharp angle, and 
within two hours it is covered with enough worms for a feeding.

The best thing about this approach is that the plastic is so light that only 
the bottom half inch sinks into the medium.  The upper three quarters can be 
swished in the fry tank without further cleaning.  

I suspect it also might increase worm production by increasing the available 
surface area.  If that is true, several such devices might double or triple 
worm production without increasing the size of the container.
