    They have melted two tackle boxes, a radio, and other items of mine.

    I now have a Cabelas soft bag with worm proof boxes-problem mostly solved.

    lol, that plasticizer is nasty stuff isn't it? it'll eat about any hard plastic item in a matter of hours. i have quite a few boxes too that have worm imprints in them.

    plano and flambeau make good worm-proof tackle boxes, and if it becomes a problem plastic zip bags work great. tight lines..

    Wow, thanks for the heads up on. I currently keep all the soft plastics in plastic baggies. Guess, I'll keep it that way.

    Wes,

    We are talking about soft PLASTIC worms, they kind you can bite in half with your teeth, and not puke.

    I dropped a couple soft-bodied lures into the top drawer of one of those multi-drawer parts cabinets; two weeks later I found the lure TWO DRAWERS BELOW the drawer I put it in. It melted it's way through three layers of plastic drawers on the way down, dripping "molten" plastic as it went. What a mess.

    And I've never be able to find extra drawers for sale for those darn cabinets, either.:(
