The Bait-O-Matic 6000
The ‘Bait-O-Matic 6000’ (total success system – haha), in a nutshell, is my goofball attempt to draw attention to a new style of worm bin I’ve been working with.
I actually first created (about a year and a half ago ) a much smaller version, referred to as the “Mini”, and sold it to local customers here in Canada (for those of you that don’t know already, all worms shipped to U.S. customers – i.e. all those sold on this site – are shipped via my U.S. based supplier). I eventually decided to discontinue making and selling these bins in favor of taking a more ‘DIY’ stance – I wanted to encourage people to save their money and make their own bins (but of course, they were/are still welcome to buy worms from me – haha!).
I toyed with the idea of making a video about the ‘Mini’ system awhile back, but ended up shelving the notion until recently when I was hit with the inspiration to ‘invent’ my goofy Bait-O-Matic 6000. Just so you know, I will also be creating a video showing how to make the smaller bin as well. (UPDATE: I have now included a How-To video for the Mini down below)
One thing to mention (also written in the guide) – you’ll notice I used the term ‘invent’ in quotes. I definitely DON’T want to give people the impression that I have some sort of ego about this! I have little doubt there are already plenty of people making bins like this (using air vents). If you spend any length of time reading my blog posts etc you will realize that I am constantly poking fun at myself and being a big goofball in general – and thus, should never be taken TOO seriously!
I just wanted to share this information for all those of you thinking about making a ‘regular’ plastic worm bin, since I firmly believe that the vents offer a huge improvement over the typical ‘drill holes’ – and they look pretty spiffy too! I want to thank Jeff “The Friendly Worm Guy” for originally telling where to buy the vents up here in Canada. I hadn’t had any luck tracking them down myself.
Anyway – I don’t need to write too much here since it’s all in the free guide. Feel free to click on the image above or on the link below to access the PDF. From there you simply save the document onto your computer (look for the disk icon up in the top left) – assuming you chose to do so.
As always, if you have any questions or comments, or just want to say “hey”, don’t hesitate to drop me a line (including ‘bait-o-matic’ in your email subject will likely help as well).
