It's Raining Catalpa Worms !

Discussion in 'Catfish Discussion' started by catalpa_sphinx, Aug 2, 2005.

  1. We recently purchased our home which has several catalpa trees.
    The castings falling onto the porch roof almost sounds like rain.
    When the worms drop, it sounds like nuts hitting the roof.
    There are large fat worms dropping from the trees.
    I am sweeping up the castings to use as organic fertilizer.
    I have heard that the worms make excellent bait.
    Does anyone have any tips or advice regarding a possible market for these.
    We live near Yellow Springs.
    The kids are looking for ways to make some summer money.
    Can we find a use for this nuisince and mess ??
    ANY INFO regarding use or control of these would be appriciated.

    Hey, I am in Xenia @ work almost every day. I'll surely buy some from you. Lots of them if the price is right. Anyone on here know how to store them for a few weeks?

    Guys this person has not been back online since he made the original post, dont look like he wants to get rid of them.
  9. Alright Screw that guy......if i find a good tree Ill post and Ill sell a bunch to everyone

    $4 a dozen is cheap enough......If you try to buy them from a bait store they are like 10 to 20 for 20 worms....
