    Actually I think I might make a diy video on how to make a bristle worm trap out of plexiglass or acrylic sheeting.

    FWIW, if you DO happen to get popped, soak the affected area in vinegar for a few minutes. This will dissolve the "bristles" if they're calcareous.

    Altho I've never come across one that I know of, there are SOME species that have silica-based spines, which can be removed with strong tape or by putting glue on the area and peeling it off.
