The African Night Crawler
What do African Nightcrawlers need?
1. Warmth. They must be kept indoors in the winter. If you can keep them at temps above 60 degrees you will have happy and healthy worms. African
Night crawlers are tropical worms so the warmer the better. Please them outside in summer in bins and then bring inside in late summer.
2. Keep out of
rain. The African
Night crawler will crawl off if kept in the rain. In summer you can place them outside as long as the bin has a cover or is in a covered area.
Why keep African Nightcrawlers if they need heat and crawl when it rains?
Well, the answer is that they grow very large.
8 inch worms
is very possible. I don't grow them for that reason though.
I love African
Night crawlers because they create a large volume of castings. Their large size and voracious appetite help create a ton of worm castings. Those worm castings are like gold to organic gardeners.
If you want large, active worms for fishing and large amounts of nutrient rich castings then try a
bin of African Nightcrawlers. You won't be sorry.
