That would be interesting to find out... somehow I think that the TSA would frown on worms in your luggage, but maybe there is a suitable container that would allow you to safely transport the worms.

Apparently yes. BTW for google searches (from someone who's spend WAY too much time) you can search in the form of a question. Let the google engine, which is amazing, do the work. "redworms on a plane" got the below hit.

People mail them all the time, so I suppose many of those worms fly. I actually don't see a problem.

They aren't the sort of thing they are looking for: weapons, metal, liquids, aerosols, inflammables.
