Default Blackworm feeding techniques

I recently switched my axolotls diet from frozen bloodworms to live blackworms. The first day I put in a large ball of blackworms into their feeding dish and they ate like pigs. I left for class and came back and noticed all the worms were gone. The next day I fed them again (they are still juvies) and they all ate but then I noticed that there were blackworms hiding in EVERYTHING. from the ornaments to under the food dish. I don't have an issue with them other than they infested my moss balls and are causing them to fall apart. Is this a common problem? I moved the moss to my shrimp tank to be cleaned but I would like to move them back.

If they don't get eaten right away, the survivors will crawl and hide everywhere and anywhere.

Empty tank is the way to go for blackworms.
