    This is great! I have a golf putting green in my backyard that I try to maintain to the highest standards. Unfortunately, almost every morning, I have dozens of worm holes and little mounds of dirt spread out on the grass. I sweep these up before the morning mowing and rolling, just to have to deal with it again the next morning!

    I've been advised to water the green with baby shampoo which has done nothing. I've also tried poking copper probes into the lawn, connected to the household 110v AC outlet. This usually just trips the GFCI breaker.

    Now I will try with a separate generator as shown in the video.

    I reckon I’d pop out of the ground to if some bastard was sticking 274 volts up my clacker as well!

    do not play with 110 v AC it is a dangerous current, you can only use DC voltages

    DC voltage is more dangerous than AC, so keep the voltage below about 40vdc. I wonder if a DC inverter welder would work?

    Back when I was a kid we had a military surplus telephone magnito crank (used to ring phones when they had wires and bells). Put out around 90VAC which certainly got the worms up. Also putting coffee grounds on the ground would bring them up to eat overnight. I don't think they cared about brand, whatever was in the pot at the end of the day.

    Having the sandy soil that I do the population of earth worms is sparse. I don't want them for fishing I wanted them in an my garden area for their natural composting ability's. So naturally I don't care to shock them out of the ground but is their population were to increase to several hundred per sq foot it would be fine with me.
    What I have done is to save the coffee grounds and the filters,the vegetable table scraps peelings egg shells and so forth into 5 gallon buckets then after a period of time I spread these on the garden after all harvest is done cut down any remaining foliage then moisten the soil and cover with sheet metal for the winter. Where there I used to be able only to find one or possibly 2 earth worms I am now finding several. Hopefully there will be 1000s by spring if the ground does not get too cold. I'm noticing they also eat the coffee filters.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    I have used nearly similar way, this is actually very popular here.
    Take a plastic bucket, drill holes to the sides and bottom ( if it happens to rain water gets out) and then sunk bucket to shady place to the ground.
    Place coffee grounds to the bottom of the bucket, cover it with lid.
    And after couple days you can collect worms from the bucket.
