African Nightcrawlers (Eudrilus Eugeniae)

Regular price $0.00 $45.00 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.  When they are full grown there is approximately 300-350/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, European Nightcrawler and African Nightcrawler worms here at our own farm, we will occasionally drop-ship worms 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.

Happy and learning fast

Worms arrived in great shape. Helpful hints for bedding and when to feed.

I'm a newbie.

I received my worms very quickly. The amount of material they came in was shockingly good. As for the worms themselves as I'm new to this I'm not sure what to expect but the order and shipping process was phenomenal. All the worms arrived alive and energetic. Now comes the learning process on what to do.

Thomas Hope
They arrived healthy

I couldn't be happier. I was worried that ordering from Southwest Florida in late May would get me a box of dead African Nightcrawlers, but they were healthy and active when they arrived, and have taken to their new environment really well. Well done, Midwest Worms!

I did my research on nightcrawlers before ordering them for my worm farm, I decided with African nightcrawlers thinking they were going to be pretty thick and hearty when I got them.
They get here alive and well but with the small stature they are getting out of my breathing and draining holes which are 2.38mm or 3/32nd

This is my third time ordering from you folks and I have been totally satisfied all 3 times. Your anc’s are great quality and I love getting full grown worms.
