Talking DIY Worm Keeper

So since ive been contemplating on getting blackworms, i might as well make a place for them to live in. this costed me 10min of my time.

Supplies:
-2 plastic containers (i used country crocks butter container)
-a rubberband
-COARSE cloth...

so what i did was take one of the containers and made a hole leaving ~1/4 inch of the edge. then i covered the hole with the cloth. then secure the cloth with the rubberband. pull the cloth tight!! insert the ready made container with the strainer to the other container, and ENJOY!!!

gonna test once i get my worms.. pretty sure it will work tho.

they will get underneath..

you would be better off leaving them in a small tray... and use this strain and rinse them.. then put them back in tray
with clean water..

were you planning on leaving them in this tub?
