I have an interest in a Catawba worm tree. My Dad has several trees but there are no worms on them. Do any of you fishermen know how to start a dormant tree to produce worms or where you can just buy the worms. For you folks that don't know what I am talking about they look like black/green caterpillars and catfish LOVE them. Thanks for any info on this subject!

Do not spray the ground under them, that will kill the ones in the dirt. If you put worms on them they will go down in the ground then come back and lay eggs.

I asked my Dad (85 yrs. old) this morning if he had sprayed the yard. We started talking about the lack of worms and he said the ants were carrying them away a few years back and that he had indeed sprayed around the Catawba trees.

They usually are a male and female tree and the worm are more on the female than male.. Male tress are the ones that produce the seed pods. Or I may have that turned around. I have about 6 trees and they get on some of the trees and the other one they don't mess with.. Weird I know. plus with all the ants they eat alot of the eggs.

I don't know about seeds, but the trees can be rooted.

Maybe put ant poison on the ground around the tree. I really don't know, but that makes sense. Call the extension office. Wasps are my problem.

Catappa trees do produce a seed pod. I had several sround my grandfather country store he sold worms for bait. I usually mow over small trees but now very few remain. I often thought the worms nested in a near by wild cherry tree due to large silk nest full of worms.
