There are many ways to harvest worms. Professorial worm harvesters are out of reach for most, small worm raisers. making piles is a pretty slow process.
- drill a hole in the exact center of each end, about 1/2 inch should be fine.
- Next, run a peice of rebar, though the barrel holes, letting it stick out about a foot or more on each end.
- a picture of a simple 2x2 wood sifter harvester. set the rebar and barrel on 2 saw horse's, or something you have similar.
- take a saw and cut 3 areas out of the side's of the barrel, from the top to the bottom, when you get done, you will have the top, the bottom, and 3 rib's, connecting the 2 ends.
- on each end, make several holes-from the edge to the center, but leave the center area alone, like a 1/2 slice of pizza,
- line the inside with screen, and walla, you are done.
