	I agree. If I keep the worms in a closed container, they try to
get out. If I leave the bag's mouth open, then they do not try to crawl
out. If I get live brine, I have found out (the hard way) that I have to
leave the bag open (with the edges of the bag rolled back) 

	My main problem is worm bits that come with worms. These decay and
poison the water causing immediate mass destruction in the bowl generally
within a week of buying the worms.
