It may be too late to help this casing, but in the future, you might try adding some diatomaceous earth to your casings. About three to five percent by volume should do it.

DE is the fossilized skeletons of siliceous marine and fresh water organisms, particularly diatoms and other algae. These skeletons are made of hydrated amorphous silica or opal. The particles are actually very tiny, sharp shards so small that the material feels like talcum powder. This is easily picked up by the hairy bodies of most insects and worms where it scratches through their body causing a rapid loss of moisture; they just dry up and die.

DE is harmless to humans, though I'd avoid breathing it, and is frequently added to grain on farms to protect it from insects. You can get it at any well-stocked aquarium store; it's used to filter water.

Meanwhile, pick out the worm and hope he's alone.

Good luck!
