Question Blood worms populating; want them out.

I have a 16g guppy tank and gave them live blood worms one time, because I had some left over from feeding a fire eel in another tank. It's been a couple of weeks since then. I went to do a PWC and vacuum out my gravel, and BLOOD WORMS EVERYWHERE!! Any suggestions on how to get rid of them? I was thinking that I might just vacuum the gravel in there to get a portion of blood worms when I need to feed the fire eel. I'd suck out the water & blood worms, then return the water to that tank and put the blood worms into the other tank for the eel. Would this effectively get rid of the blood worms? I was totally shocked at how many there were when I went in there today. Please help!

There are a few LFSs that stock live worms for those picky eaters. I've found 2 in a 40-mile radius from Boston, MA that stock them, so they're pretty easily found. Just call a few LFSs in your area, and I'm sure you'll find one that stocks them.
