How to Make a Free Worm Harvester

 

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

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.

Steps

 

 

  1.  

     

  2. drill a hole in the exact center of each end, about 1/2 inch should be fine.

     

     

 

Tips

 

 

  • 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.
