Rearing or Cultivating Glycera dibranchiata (Bloodworms)

We received a very specific question from a reader a few days ago about cultivating the "marine bloodworm Glycera dibranchiata." Glycera dibranchiata are commonly used for fish bait, so the reader's motivation for rearing or breeding bloodworms - essentially, setting up a bloodworm farm - is presumably tied to fishing. The reader was first of all wondering if bloodworms can be cultivated "successfully," and if so, he was wondering how he might go about doing so. He also wanted to know if there are any publications that are available to assist with the rearing task. Continue reading [...]

How to Attract Catawba Worms to Your Catalpa Trees

A reader asked us a couple of days ago why there are no longer Catawba worms on her Catalpa trees (or Catalpa worms on her Catawba trees - "Catalpa" and "Catawba" are interchangeable). Catawba worms make excellent fishing bait, so the reader was keen to find out how to attract them back to her trees. Since she gave no information about her circumstances, it's of course very difficult to say why the Catawba worms left, and for similar reasons it is hard to say how to get them back. (Obviously, the two questions are related.) Even in the absence of specific information, we can still supply some general information about attracting Catawba worms to Catalpa trees, and what keeps them away. Continue reading [...]

Blood Worms (Bloodworms)

A reader wrote to us a while ago about the prospect of breeding blood worms (sometimes - nay, often - spelled "bloodworms"). He was wondering how to set up a successful blood worm cultivation operation, and sought our assistance to that end. This may seem like a fairly obscure question (and we guess it is), but we've actually been asked about breeding worms before; in fact, by far the strangest question we've ever received was about breeding worms. However, we've never written about breeding blood worms in particular, and we haven't written a lot about blood worms in general either. So, below is some basic information about blood worms, including a bit about breeding blood worms for the sake of our curious reader. Continue reading [...]

Worms for Sale! Yes, That’s Right, You Can Buy Worms

If you saw a sign that said “worms for sale,” you might think you stumbled into an alternate reality. Worms for sale? How could that be? Who on earth would actually want to buy worms? Even if an advertisement promised “cheap worms for sale” or even “free worms,” you still may think it would be crazy to take someone up on this offer. Continue reading [...]
