How To Get Worms Out Of The Ground With Soap
Want to go fishing with your kids? The first step is to gather up a bucket of worms. But how do you get worms out of the ground without having to dig around in it with your hands? We can help!
Make a mixture of diluted dishwashing soap.
Make a mixture of diluted dishwashing soap. For this, you will want to use a ratio of 1 part soap to 10 parts water. The solution should be diluted enough that it’s not too harsh on the plants but strong enough to draw out worms and kill them.
Spray the dirt with the soap solution.
Once you have the soap solution, it’s time to spray the dirt. You can use a garden hose or even a spray bottle for this step if you’re on-the-go; just make sure that the solution is dilute and not too much soap comes out of your nozzle! The goal is to get enough soap on your dirt, but not so much that it causes runoff.
When spraying, go in a circular motion until worms start popping up all over the place (you’ll know when this happens because they’ll be everywhere). Once that happens, you’re ready for step 4!
Wait 5 minutes.
- Wait 5 minutes. This is the time it takes for the soap to take effect, as well as to allow you to check your work and see if you’ve missed any worms. You can use this time to get a drink or take a breather before moving on with your day.
- Engage in some self-care activities (meditation, stretching) while waiting. This will help keep your mind off of what’s happening at ground level and make the process feel less stressful overall!
Gather the worms in a bucket.
To begin, collect the worms with a container. You can use a bucket or even a large piece of cardboard; just make sure that your container is big enough to hold all of the worms you’re planning on extracting from your yard. Once you have them in their new home, place them in the freezer for at least 24 hours. This will kill off any pests and parasites that may be living inside of them; if you don’t want to kill them immediately but do want to keep them contained until you decide what to do with them, try putting some grass or leaves around the edge of their new habitat so they won’t be able to escape through any gaps between the sides and bottom of their container. Once your worms are frozen or contained however long it takes before they thaw out (again, keep an eye out for gaps), release them into an area where they can thrive again—it might be best if this was somewhere far away from your own property!
Making a solution of dishwashing soap and water will draw out worms from the ground.
This can be done by mixing one part dishwashing soap with five parts water. Spray this solution onto the ground and wait five minutes before gathering up the worms that are attracted to it.
