Short-Term Storage

Using bait within one month. If using worms within one month, you can keep small amounts in the refrigerator until your next outing.

Long-Term Storage

Keeping bait beyond a month. If keeping large amounts of worms for a longer period of time, store them in a worm box. Make sure your worms are properly stored in soil and feed them about once a week.
