Exclamation Walter and Banana Worm

Maybe this should have been posted in the "Foods" forum, but, it concerns rearing baby Axies. I have had 3 lots of BBS fail, 2 normal eggs and 1 decapsulated. I am now waiting for the Hobby Artemia Hatcher to arrive. Meanwhile I have 20 hatchlings to feed, luckily both the Walter and Banana cultures are teeeming with worms. I have never used these before so, my question is ; How do you clean all the oaty/yukky gunk off them before feeding to the babies? They are the smallest worms I could buy and so far I have found no way of washing them clean. I would appreciate any help please.Thanks.

Default Re: Walter and Banana Worm

With white worms, I scoop them out with their dirt and put them in a container with so much water added to the dirt that they climb up the side of the container to get away from all that water, then I just scoop them off the side of the container. I don't know what you raise these worms in so not sure if this method would work though. Good luck.

Thanks for thr reply Otterwoman. My little ones haven't reached the Whiteworm stage yet , hence these other worms.These type live in a yukky gunky runny oatmeal sloppy stuff. They too climb up the sides of the tubs but take all the crud with them, they are the size of BBS and a nightmare to clean off. The new BS hatchery arrived today so hopefully I should have BBS shortly.
