Regular price $0.00 $32.00 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 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.

Order received very late

I purchased my worms the last week of November. I did not receive any word of their arrival until the first week of January. I tried contacting them to find out an approximate date on when I would receive my worms, but received no response. The worms arrived in good condition, but I did not appreciate their lack of communication. There are plenty other worm providers online, next time I will look elsewhere.

Thank you for the great transaction. Your ENC were huge and in perfect shape. Could not have found a better company to purchase my worms from. I will be buying from MidWest worms again.
