Fishing worms

You can feed your worms fruit and vegetable scraps and starchy scraps, like bread, oatmeal, and pasta. Do not feed them too much acidic foods, like citric fruits, coffee ground and tea bags. They do best with a pH between 7 and 8. You can use egg shells to balance the effects of coffee grounds, orange and lemon peels. Make sure that the eggshells are cooked before giving them to the worms.
Never feed your worms meat, poultry, dairy products, or salty food , like potato chips. These will create odors and bring in bugs and insects,fly's and such.
Your fishing worms should eat about half their body weight each day. Take this into consideration when you are deciding how much food to add to the fishing worm box or container. Fishing worm article.
