The African Night Crawlers

By

United States

Posted Apr 19, 2015

African Night Crawlers are a great composting worm that likes warm weather. Mature African Night Crawlers can grow up to be 10 inches in length. You can keep them outdoors in areas like Arizona or Florida of the US. If you live in a colder climate, it’s best to keep them indoors. Their temperature must be kept above 60 degrees. They are great crawlers and need to be in a composting bin or large bucket that can prevent them from escaping. If you notice that your worms are trying to escape their bin, you may want to inspect their bedding and replace it if necessary. Transfer all of your worms and worm castings to their new bedding. They can be fed a combination of ground cornmeal and oatmeal, egg shells, coffee grounds or kitchen scraps.
