So, my two kids are old enough to go fishing and have fun, but they get bored after an hour or so. I purchased some worms from a local shop, and at our rate of fishing, it's going to take a while to use them up. I was told they were pretty fresh, and they apparently came from Canada (and boy are their arms tired...). The worms are packed in a small (6"x6"x2") Styrofoam box that seems to seal itself pretty well. They are packed in dirt, and they seem pretty happy when I open the container.
How long can I expect them to last in the fridge? Is a typical home refrigerator (33-35 degrees) too cold? They were in a cooler at the bait shop, but I have no idea how cold it was.
Is there anything I can do to make the little guys more comfortable? How do I know when they are "expiring"? I guess they just quit moving, but are there other signs that it's probably time to git rid of them?
