Regular price $50.00 Sale

African Nightcrawlers (scientific name: Eudrilus Eugeniae), are also known as ANC’s, or Africans. They are rapidly becoming the favorite composting worm of those who want to produce higher quantities of Worm Compost/Castings in less time. The African Nightcrawler can compost over twice the quantities of food scraps and/or manure than other composting worms. They breed very rapidly, and is the largest composting worm available, growing up to 7-8 inches in length.  They are also a good fishing worm.  In Australia, the African Nightcrawler is possibly their most loved and used fishing worm.  In fact, in Australia, fishing is one of the largest hobbies and pastimes of any country in the world.

Whether for composting or fishing the African Nightcrawler is quickly becoming the most sought-after worm in the World. African Nightcrawlers are a tropical worm and need to be kept in the 70’s (temperature).  When they are full grown there is approximately 300/lb.

It is not possible to guarantee 100% pure worm species with any type of composting worm.  It is always possible for occasional roamers that leave there growing tray and get into another species tray.  There is always a chance of receiving a few “other” species in your order.  These “other” species are usually also great composters.  So far, to date, we have not received any complaints on this issue but it does happen in the worm industry occasionally even when taking many precautions.  While we raise both Red Wigglers and European Nightcrawler  worms here at our own farm, our African Nightcrawlers are raised  and are drop-shipped to you from another worm farm we have partnered with.

  When placing an order please read our shipping policy for details on when we ship and what to do if there are any problems with your worms upon arrival.

African nightcrawlers for fishing

Maybe for summer, but not great for winter. They can't take the cold and so you are much better off with Belgian nightcrawlers...they are tougher and will wriggle on the hook. I will be trying the Africans as chopped worms in my feed, Belgian on the hook for now (Feb) and maybe African on the hook in summer

So far so good.

They arrived as described in the website. I hydrated as suggested and put their their new home. They tried to get out, and I found I didn't have enough bedding on the top. Once I put about an inch of bedding on them then stayed put. The fattened up quickly. It took 2 weeks for them to get fat.
