The European Night crawler is also known as the giant redworm.
They grow to be 3-8 inches long, and are 2 or 3 times bigger than their smaller cousins, the red wigglers. When the european nightcrawlers are not stretched out, they are as thick as a pencil.
European night crawlers are wonderful fishing worms. One customer reported catching four fish on one worm! 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 Night crawlers do. They can survive in a bait cup for 3 weeks, or even longer if you take care to add some water and food. How about getting one of our Worm Farms and growing and storing your own source of worms??
Besides fishing, all our worms are a tasty, high protein treat for turtles, frogs, koi, birds, and lizards, etc.
When ued for composting the european nightcrawlers 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. The European nightcrawler can also tolerate higher levels of moisture than the red wiggler, and has been successfully used in paper sludge processing operations.
Euros 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.
