Worms!

Just came home from the nursery where we bought a small container of 200 earthworms. We have to BUY things like this living in the Phoenix AZ area. LOL

I want to go back and pick up some praying mantis's as well.

For the garden or for fishing?

Do you eat the worms and praying mantis's? I once say a scorpion baked on some type bread, so I wondered if you made the same type delicacis made with worms and Mantis's?

Re: Worms!

Ok, I thought the reason I bought them was obvious, but apparently not. It is for the garden(s).

Re: Worms!

I get buying the worms where you live but the biggest population of Praying Mantis I ever saw was in the high desert of California, a climate much like Phoenix. Every morning there would be several of them stuck in the screen door having been attracted overnight by the porch light.

With the humidity here we have earthworms galore and lots of other beneficial creatures... Of course we also have mosquitoes, fleas, flies, ants, roaches, spiders, more kinds of venomous snakes than I care to think about, etc. So every climate has it's challenges... I admire you for gardening in yours.

Re: Worms!

Well, after adding 2 hundred healthy worms to our garden and potato barrels, I can safely say that we probably only have about half that amount now on account of the quail making a triumphant return to our back yard. I really do love watching them. They are both pretty and funny as they run around like little commandos (think of the penguins from the movie Madagascar), but they are also healthy meat eaters and LOVE earthworms. Once they discovered the first one not a day goes by where we have to fill in the holes they are digging in our garden.

This is them!
