African Nightcrawlers (Eudrilus Eugeniae)

Regular price $0.00 $47.00 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 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.

Best of three worm suppliers used Mid West Worms

Thank MWW so much. Ordered on Friday 11 August and delivered 2 PM Wednesday 16 August. Great condition a good mass of worms added water to hydrate . Purchased the AFNC because of the heat in Memphis TN . My bins were getting to hot for other species. I have been using frozen food and other frozen items I am looking for the tropical AFNC to greater tolerance to heat
Box was good with a bottom liner box and holes on the side Put a note on mail box for post to put worms in shade which they did New to wrangling but very excited to have my AFNC. I seem to remember MWW works with a partner thanks for their fullment

I have use two other worm suppliers Mid West Worms has been the best Will continue to purchase from MWW
