European Nightcrawlers make excellent bait worms due to their larger size – in addition to being hardy and hungry compost worms.

Compost worms have FOUR requirements:

  • Bedding – need be little more than peat moss and shredded paper or cardboard, while coir (included with the Worm Factory 360) is an even better choice
  • Food – European Nightcrawlers, like red wigglers, will eat almost anything of organic origin; be sure to follow recommended guidelines for smaller systems
  • Moisture – a damp but not wet environment is ideal, in systems with good airflow and moderate temperatures
  • Proper pH – easily accomplished with good basics in bedding and moisture
  • Voracious appetites
  • Easy to care for
  • Prolific breeders
  • Best all round composting worm
