    I haven’t been able to find an exact number. However, worm diggers in Maine earn $120 per 1000 sand worms and $240 per 1000 bloodworms. Warm farming has also increased.

    It’s very difficult to differentiate between worms raised to be used as bait and worms used to help create compost. Canada exports about $110 million in worms to the United States a year, which would put the number of worms somewhere in the billions.
