    I say try it. God knows they will eat just about anything. If they work let us know. Might have a new use for these garden pests.

    I wonder if starling liver will work. I am tired of em raiding my garden and cuting off my plants for their nests.

    I don't see why the worms wouldn't work for you, it can't hurt to try. Maybe you should use the whole bird, my dad had a problem with starlings and grackles a few years back, they were using his pool for their own personal bathroom. So I solved the problem for him with a 20 gauge skeet gun and about 2 boxes of shells, the cats ate good that night! Those birds get wise real quick to the sound of the safety clicking off!

    Do you mean horn worms? I have used them before for Channel and i thought they were reasonably good bait.
