I can't tell you how, but I believe I saw this covered under a similar topic on this forum a while back. Try running a search on "worm probe" and see what comes up.

Just take an extension cord. cut the female end off separate the two wires and solder(sp) the ends to a couple of steel rods about three ft long. When complete, push into ground (while they are unplugged of course) and plug them in. Give them about twenty minutes to work. push them in about three to four ft apart.

Actualy all you need to do is flaten the end of a coat hanger, so it will fit into ONE side of the female end of your extention cord. make sure it fits loose enough to pull off the hanger easily. poke the hanger in the ground, then put the extention cord on then plug it in. Before you move to a different spot take the cord off the hanger first. if you have watered the lawn pryor to doing this, you will feel some tingle when pulling worms or kneeling etc.

But! "boiled" nightcrawlers, wont live as long. Easier to go out after dark, then pic em!

I think if you do as stated above you may blow fuses or breakers as that would make a short.

My grandfather used to use one of these, and it was quite safe if we all stayed on the dry cement driveway while it was plugged in.
