don't kill the good stuff in the rock, that would just be a waste of $$$.
put them in a bucket with tank water, but hanging from something so they are suspended.
Put some food in the bottom of the bucket and wait.
hopefully overnight the worms will come out looking for food and will go to the bottom and not be able to get back to the suspended rocks.
don't know for sure if it would work, but it sounds as if it might.
