I was feeding my t and I put a Morris worm outside it’s burrow but it wriggled out of my tongs and it fell down the burrow and I can’t get it out without destroying the ts burrow and it took her a few months to make what should I do in this situation

Morris worm? That was the first internet attack in 1988. What is the true name of the worm?

If you didn't crush its head beforehand, I hate to say it, but you'll probably need to get it out. They can be nasty buggers and resurface from burrowing to kill a molting or freshly molted tarantula. It sucks that you'll have to destroy the burrow, but it's better than risking the alternative in my opinion.

Well sadly I had to learn to crush there heads the hard way but thank you for telling me I’ll dig it out in the morning better safe than sorry although on the bright side I’ll be able to see my t dig the burrow again because it is pretty cool to look at
