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

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
