This may be a silly question, but has anyone ever brought in worms to
add to your yard or garden? I am thinking I would like to increase my
worm population to help aerate the yard, as well other benefits worms
brings. Can you buy worms and relocate them to your yard? If so, do
you know where to get worms? Will the worms sold at fishing tackle
stores work? Are there major differences between types of worms--I
always see nightcrawlers advertised at bait stores.
I have tons of worms in my compost bin. My bin is made out of 7 poles,
4 pieces of 4X8 lattice, cable ties and a 8x8 piece of old carpet.
It's located in the shade. I throw in table scraps along with any
other yard waste. Every other week I turn the compost and see tons of
big fat worms. If you build it (and use table scraps) they will come.
