About Me:
Hi, just started about a month ago, and finding it very interesting. Started with about 1000 wigglers and 200 ENC, which is what I'm most interested in, for my area. Going to order a 1000 ENC when I get back from a trip to California, should be nice to get out of the snow for a couple of weeks. But remember if you can't take the winter you don"t deserve the summer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

   Hi, just bought 1 lb of euro's bed run, and was wondering how many and how long can I expect to keep them in a 18 gl. tote. I have really enjoyed the help I have
received on my Red Wigglers, sold 20 lbs. in one month, to me thats great could not have done it without all your help.
Thanks in advance, Jim

I raise red wigglers and having great luck, but want a fishing worm. I raise red wigglers in the basement where the temperature stays around 60% thru the winter, and have no problem. I want to raise either Euro's or African nightcrawlers for fishing, which is the fattest not the longest?
Thanks for your help

Red Mites

Hi folk's, I was wondering if anyone has had this problem? I shipped 1 pound of Red Wigglers to a very nice lady who was going to use them indoors. She said there are red mites mixed in. I have placed banana peels in different bins and have not seen one yet, is it common for these little suckers to be in there.

Thanks in advance Jim

Hi Jim; I'm posting a link to The Garden Forums a perticular thread about breeding the Lts that you are interested in Canadian Nightcrawlers/North American Nightcrawlers. After you look it over I will be very happy to assist you any way I can.

Hi Jim, since the worms like living within 4-6" of the surface perhaps you should look at square footage instead of cubic foot.  I'm finding that the worms are comfortable at about 2,000/square foot.  After that they become "stressed" and are smaller, less healthy, and eventually level out to this 2#/square foot ratio.
