    Cant seem to remember the name of a chemical that my Uncle used to use to get worms, got it from a feed store and he mixed it with water and pored it on fresh worm mounds and in a no time the worms were crawling on the ground. Just had to pick them up. Anyone ever heard of this? Didn't seem to hurt the worms. Been 20 years cant remember chemical name.
    Thanks

    I would think that just watering it down would do the trick. Worms come to the surface during a rain storm as a natural survival tactic. I would think that just simulating a rain storm would work. I also have heard of a people pounding a rebar post in the ground and then rubbing it with a metal rod like a violin.

    A mild solution of warm water and dishwashing detergent poured on the ground in a likely spot will bring worms to the surface.

    Found it. its 1 Tbs of 1,2,4-Trimethylbenzene mixed with 5 gallons of water. pour some (saturate ground) on fresh worm mounds, pour on bunch of them and then go back to the first and pick up the worm off the ground.
    Thanks all
