European Nightcrawlers Composting and Fishing Worms 2 Lb Pack

European Nightcrawlers are a larger cousin of the Red Wiggler. Just as voracious as the Red Wiggler, the European Nightcrawler prefers to inhabit the lower part of worm bins.

These worms are excellent for use as fishing worms as well. If you want to raise worms to use or sell as fishing worms, then this is your worm.

2 lbs of European Nightcrawlers equate to approximately 1,200 worms.

Need more? We also have 5 lbs of European Nightcrawlers available here.

Product Description

These NightCrawlers are much larger and better for fishing bait than the Red Wiggler (Eisenia Fotida) Check the pictures!

The European Nightcrawler is also known as the Giant Redworm. They are the only worm to survive brackish salt water, and they are very cold resistant. When tested in the icy waters of northwestern British Columbia, the worms were still very active after 30 minutes in the water.

Another Benefit is that European Nightcrawlers do not need to be refrigerated, as the Canadian Nightcrawlers do. They can survive in a bait cup for 3 weeks, or even longer if you take care to add some water and food. Besides fishing, all our worms are a tasty, high protein treat for turtles, frogs, koi, birds, and lizards, etc. The Euro can also tolerate higher levels of moisture than the red wiggler, and has been successfully used in paper sludge processing operations.

Although, we know that the Eisenia Fotida are excellent "stay at home" type worms. Where the name of the Euros might suggest they are "Night Crawlers".

Our worms ship ONLY via USPS Priority Mail. Delivery is nationwide, with a 2-3 days delivery to almost all areas of the continental USA.

Our worms are grown and dropped shipped by a pool of professional worm growers from various locations in the US, so if you have any doubts regarding delivery to your location we welcome you to get in contact with us BEFORE placing your order. We DO NOT deliver worms to HAWAII, due to legal restrictions from the Hawaii Department of Agriculture.

IF YOU ARE ALSO ORDERING A WORM BIN PLEASE NOTE: Worm Bins are shipped immediately upon receipt of payment via FedEx or UPS and take longer to arrive than the worms. We will ship the worms approximately 10 days after shipping of the Worm Bin in order to ensure that worms do not arrive before their home does. If you don't need to wait for the worm bin, please add a note on your order to get them shipped immediately.

Details

  • They grow to be 3-8 inches long, and are 2 or 3 times bigger than their smaller cousins, the red wigglers (Eisenia Fotida).
  • The euros are certainly better for larger foods that aren't as broken down, or for leaves and other tougher material that has not been pre-composted.
  • Can be successfully introduced to most garden environments. They are mid range dwellers and will till and aerate your soil for you, while supplying valuable castings.
  • This pack contains approximately 650 worms to a pound.

that you were also an SC resident, so you know we have teratmpeures from 5 degrees F to 105 degrees F (or even worse). I want to raise Alabama jumpers for my garden and to sell to gardeners. For these, I’m not worried about compost. I’ve got plenty of leaf mould to feed them. My primary object is to propagate worms.THE question: Can Amynthas gracilus (or Amynthas gracilis which is current?) be raised in a bin? I see that you’re experimenting now and hope that you have an answer even if you don’t have enough for an article yet.Alternative: I have an enclosed building with a concrete floor and I could partition part of it off for temperature control. Could a working height wooden box with an open (or not open) top be enough better than a bin to make it worth the trouble?And of course, if I get a yes to either of the above questions, I’ll want all the knowledge I can get as to how. Right now we’re experimenting with redworms, but as the time grows closer to purchase some jumpers, my wife and I would love to visit you and/or your friend to see your procedures in action (and just visit a little).Thanks,Jim
