I've wanted to do this. How long will 51 worms live in a tub that size without adding anything?

My dad would hunt his night crawlers after dark or early morning. He would keep 6-7 dozens in a 3 or 5 gal bucket. As long as he threw in a few scraps and kept it moist, they stayed alive for months on end.
I had gorgotten about the newspaper, he would use that sometimes too and he sometimes bought the commercial bedding to mix in too, it looked like the gray blow-in insulation.
I get crickets for my son's reptiles from a local supplier that raises them in their barn. They use worms to break down the cricket poop, then spread the rich dirt on their yard. Pretty cool. They haven't gotten to the point of selling worms yet.
