    $30??!!! Do those worms bait themselves or something??!!!

    Just go to wal-mart, people! http://www.walmart.com/ip/Canadian-Nightcrawlers-20pc/17126963

    The little bait shop in my town closed a few years ago :(

       I remember reading once that McDonald’s debunked the rumours that their burgers were made of worms by pointing out that the cost of worms was much higher than the cost of beef.  This story may even be true.

      FYI,  2lb of worms is approximately 2000 worms vs. the 20 worms you linked from Wal-Mart. Also, the variety shown in the picture that costs $30 are red wrigglers and, though they can be fishing worms, are predominantly used for vermi-composting so people buy a big batch to get their compost pile moving quickly.

    I bought live ladybugs from amazon. worked out great. except they all vacated my garden within 2 days instead of staying around to eat the aphids.

    I got two pounds of red wrigglers from Uncle Jim’s and they were infested with cluster fly larvae.  We had flies in our house for months.

    No live chameleons or chihuahua in a teacup?

    Funnily enough, I need some worms.  Thanks for the tip.

    Praying Mantises and ladybugs too. They’re great for the garden.

    The “approximately 2 lobsters per case” is a bit disturbing.

    My EcoSphere started with 4 shrimp and is now down to 1 after five years.
