underground crawler box

5 posts in this topic

I have this fiberglass box that a fella gave me, its about 24"x 32" and 20" high, with a lid, he had bought it for keeping night crawlers in, supposedly made for this use, he said you just dig a hole and put it in the ground with the lid flush to the ground so you could mow over it if need be. fill it with worm bedding and worms, sounds like it ought to work, anyone ever used something like this?? just curious if it works b4 I dig a big hole in the yard??

I lived in a wall tent in Alaska for 3 summer's. The only way to keep meat fresh was to dig a hole and put a wooden box in it.
Two things to keep in mind. Keep the water out or your box or it will float out of the hole, and keep the Grizzle's out. I think your worm's are safe from bear's.
If you have a cool basement put your box of worms on the cement floor, they will do just fine there.

I had one that was 24 long by 18 wide and about 14" deep. It had a mesh bottom like what screen you would find in a window, so moisture could drain properly. It was buried about 12" with 2" exposed above ground. worked very well. kept the crawlers in a temp where they reproduced, always had enought worms. In the spring you had to start over because the cold will kill them

I have found the that the easiest way to keep crawlers is in the basement fridge in a 5 qt ice cream pail. the secret is keep them cool and keep the ants from them

    •    So would the 100,000,000,000 the has ever existed.     But I have a sneaking suspicion your genome originated from the same frozen bacterial booger stuck on that meteorite from another galaxy that BD's did.
    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

    • *snicker*   CPAC scrambles to control damage after attendees wave Russian flags during Trump speech Brad Reed
      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.
