So you would actually grind up a living worm into your blender mush?

I can't just throw them out. I have no problem scewering one on a hook, this to me would be worse. Don't get me wrong, I don't find enjoyment in killing something just for fun, heck I have a hard time killing ants and WON'T kill a spider.
I figure if the worms must go, then at least their energy is not wanted. I'll do it in a Cuisinart so it's quicker, sorry.
Don't hate me.

I guess it's no different than baiting a hook. Haden't thought about it that way. And me I'll smash a spider quick. Snakes on the other hand forget it, I got a yellow streak a mile wide.

Been thinking about this a bit. Wondering if I do blend up the bigger worms in blender mush, will the bristles that have now been broken off from the worm irritate the other tank inhabitants once I put mush in tank to feed. Maybe if I freeze them first, then break the bristles off before blending. Hate to waste these guys, they are a very good source of protein and free food. Some of the ones I have are pretty big.

Too bad about the arrow. Very cool looking animal. My wife wants one really bad and I have to keep telling her no. Then again, maybe if he's just a teeny tiny guy

Got bait, I've got a pair of albino columbians flying in in the am

I would not worry about it. It is really a lot of work for what would ammount to a small ammount of food in terms of weight.
