European Night Crawlers are fast becoming a favorite breed for the worm farm. In fact some worm industry leaders predict that someday European Night Crawlers (ENC) will become more popular than Red Worms. Euros are a great pick for vermicomposting, using worms to compost. European Night Crawlers go by many names. They are often called Belgian Nightcrawlers, ENCs, Euros, and Super Red worms. European Night Crawlers are dark pink or red in color and grow to about twice the size of red worms. Like red worms, the Euro is easy to raise and reproduce quickly so they are good to pick for both first times and experienced worm farmers. Euros are pretty hardy, love table scraps, and grow quite large. If you plan on raising bait worms the Euro is a perfect choice. So whether it is composting, raising bait worms, producing worm castings, or simply enjoying an eco-friendly hobby it’s hard to beat the European Night Crawler when it comes to stocking your worm farm. But don’t rush out and buy a bunch of ENCs without first learning more about them. Our European Night Crawler facts page will tell you everything you need to know to raise ENCs.
