Regular price $0.00 $31.00 Sale

European Nightcrawlers (Eisenia hortensis or Dendrobaena veneta) Also known as Belgian Nightcrawlers, Euros, or ENC’s. The European Nightcrawler is from the same family as the Red Wiggler (Eisenia fetida) but is more than twice the size. They can get up to 8 inches long and twice the diameter.  Euros are very durable, and also very tolerant of a wide range of conditions.

They are good composting worms and some have said that they are the best fishing worm in the world because they are extremely active on the hook. It’s been said that they can withstand brackish waters and even ice fishing as bait. If you are looking for a fantastic all around worm that makes a great fishing worm and is a great composting worm the European Nightcrawler is your worm. When full grown there are 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.

Great worms. They have survived the first 3 weeks!

As advertised

The European Nightcrawlers that I ordered arrived in a timely manner after the order was place, were packaged well, and seemed to be in good shape on arrival.

Excedes expectations

Every order from Midwest Worms blows me away. These worms were so healthy, so active, and so FAT. Absolute giants. You won’t be disappointed.

Let's go fishing

These crawlers are the best. They are voracious eaters making them ready for fishing in June.

Very healthy and growing fast.

Arrived healthy after a few escaped the first day they settled in and are eating like pigs.
