The “Wormkeeper” has been designed to enable the angler to keep their Dendrobaena bait worms fresh and healthy without having to worry about the right container or suitable bedding material. It comes as a complete package – container, Dendrobaena and bedding.
On arrival, simply spread a small cupful of cooked, unsalted mashed potato onto the surface and lightly water.
Wormkeepers are just that, they are designed for the angler to keep the worm bait fresh for several weeks dependant on how it is used, it is not a wormery ie. it is not designed to compost kitchen waste, breed worms or produce worm casts. If the worms are used for fishing the stock will inevitably diminish and the bedding deteriorate as the worms will also feed on this at this point the wormkeeper will need replacing or restocked with fresh worms and importantly, fresh bedding.
The 250g Wormkeeper has 10 litres of bedding, the 500g has 15 litres and the 1kg has 20 litres.
