About our European Nightcrawlers
European Nightcrawlers are a time tested and well proven fishing bait. They are also one of the best composting worms on the planet. These earthworms grow up to 4" long and are often called many names including Belgium Worms, Euro's, Jumbo Worms, Super Red Wigglers, Panfish Worms, Trout Worms, Belgium Nightcrawlers, Georgia Jumpers, and many other names.
European Nightcrawlers for Fishing Bait
European Nightcrawlers are very hardy compared to other earthworms. They can survive in both warm and cold water conditions much longer than Canadian Nightcrawlers and other red worms.
European Nightcrawlers are a great bait for catching Bluegill, Sunfish, Perch, Crappie, Bass, Trout, Whitefish, Pike, Carp, Walleye and many other fish species. These worms can be used to catch fish year round. Some days fish will hit nothing else!
European Nightcrawlers for Composting
European Nightcrawlers are perhaps the best composting worm in the world. They can survive in both warm and cold climates and can consume up to 1/2 of their body weight per day! They have superior burrowing strength when compared to common red worms/ red wigglers. Their strength makes them ideal for providing aeration and fertilization to lawn and garden soils.
European Nightcrawlers breed quickly. Adult worms can lay nearly one egg per week. Their fast breeding cycle is perfect for establishing a colony of worms in gardens, compost piles, and lawns. They enrich soil with micro-organisms that improve plant growth, germination, and crop yield.
