European Nightcrawler Cocoons (Eisenia Hortensis egg capsules)

European Nightcrawler Cocoons (Eisenia Hortensis egg capsules)

Regular price $30.95 $27.95 Sale

16 oz of European Nightcrawler (Eisenia hortensis) bedding containing approximately 100 cocoons (worm eggs).  When we sift our European Nightcrawlers to re-bed them or to weigh them out for orders we get a lot of cocoons.  If you are not in a hurry buying cocoons can be a very economical way of getting started because it is less expensive than buying the worms.  These cocoons will produce approx 1 baby each, sometimes more.  It will typically take the cocoons approximately 2-3 weeks to hatch if kept in the mid 70's (temperature), a little longer if they are kept at a cooler temperature.  If managed properly (temp, moisture, bedding, food type and quantity) they will reach full size in approximately 18 weeks and start making babies of their own.

Mostly satisfied

The only complaint is the use of USPS. My experience with postal service has almost always been painful. UPS would be preferred.

Not as expected

Not sure what the cocoons were supposed to develop into but no worms have materialized in compost bin. I have emailed several times but keep getting message that address not valid
