    We raise african nightcrawlers for bait let me know if thats what you have. They are NOT the same as Canadian Nightcrawlers - so I cant help if thats what you are after.

    I have a worm bed that I keep nightcrawlers in.I start out with top soil,then add some dry cow poop and a little corn meal.Mix it all up and there you go.Just make sure you keep it moist(not wet).I usually put coffee grounds out of the coffee pot in there too along with used tea bags.Thats how I do it.
