These NightCrawlers are much larger and better for fishing bait than the Red Wiggler (Eisenia Fotida) Check the pictures! The European Nightcrawler is also known as the Giant Redworm.
They are the only worm to survive brackish salt water, and they are very cold resistant. When tested in the icy waters of northwestern British Columbia, the worms were still very active after 30 minutes in the water. Another Benefit is that European Nightcrawlers do not need to be refrigerated, as the Canadian Nightcrawlers do. They can survive in a bait cup for 3 weeks, or even longer if you take care to add some water and food.
Besides fishing, all our worms are a tasty, high protein treat for turtles, frogs, koi, birds, and lizards, etc. The Euro can also tolerate higher levels of moisture than the red wiggler, and has been successfully used in paper sludge processing operations. Although, we know that the Eisenia Fotida are excellent "stay at home" type worms. Where the name of the Euros might suggest they are "Night Crawlers".
