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.

5 lbs of European Nightcrawlers equate to approximately 3,000 worms.

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

Hey Jim,Welcome. I just approved your resaotritign this morning for the discussion forum.Yes one can raise Alabama Jumpers in a controlled environment as I have been doing for the past year. There is much to learn about this worm as of yet since it is much different than other worms most raise today. If all holds true, my latest batch of cocoons beginning to hatch should yield 17,500 to 20,000 Alabama Jumpers. It is a process and much more work to raise these worms compared to others when raising them for reproduction purposes.Leaves are not the way to manipulate reproduction in these worms and are not what I use to raise them. I mix different products including a grain which I grow and feed them. You will want bins to grow these worms, specially sized depending on number of worms and stage of the worms. Many reasons for this that we have found and I am logging as I go along. In fact I now have the Alabama Jumpers growth rate at an average of 23% to 24% increase weekly once they reach a certain size approx. 1 in length. This is why I started playing around with different food mixes for my other worms and now have had some similar results with red wigglers, African and European nightcrawler worms to date with a different food mix.As you probably know the farms which grow them outside on their land down south were hit hard from the past extreme cold winter. Hence I took a beating and sold off more than I should have but have a population rebounding right now.So in short, yes you can raise them in SC. In fact if you have the time and patience, it is an amazing worm which has learned to adapt to harsh conditions for survival purposes. The Alabama Jumpers have become a favorite worm of mine, right along with the African nightcrawler which I have always been impressed with.Bruce
