I keep 4 plastic shoeboxes of grindal worms. I have had the same 4 boxes
without starting over for nearly 2 years. I feed morning and night, small
bits of high quality all natural dogfood. Each and every day I get a level
teaspoon or better from-in-least 3 of the 4 shoeboxes. Feeding food in
pieces instead of scattering really fine stuff means the worms congregate on
the larger pieces of food, making scooping off to feed very easy. If you are
feeding baby cereal or something like that I don't think you will ever get
any decent amount of worms. I never did.
