Excellent I purchased the 500 night crawlers. Received delivery about 4 weeks ago. To date, I have not had a single crawler die on me. They come in different sizes and the smaller ones seem to be growing. Would definitely purchase again. April 1, 2012
Good Experience I bought the wax worms here for a double reason. Someone found some baby birds and gave them to me so I ordered the wax worms to feed them with but also to use the extra for some ultralight panfishing fun. The price is good for wax worms, about the same for worms in my area. The shipment arrived on time and with the wax worms alive an well and packaged beautifully! They were in 2 plastic containers placed with paper packaging in a cardboard box that was inside a styrofoam cooler that had a cold gel pack on it which was further placed in a big cardboard box! Its been a month and I'm still using them bit by bit, I keep them in the fridge and they're still alive. Just make sure you leave them in the sun before using so they warm up and start squirming around, drives the fish nuts! Caught everything from bluegill/sunfish to baby bass, crappie and even chain pickerel. Nothings gets you fish easier then live bait, I'll be ordering some worms soon from BPS for those slow days. Definitely a good experience. August 20, 2011
if you want fish This is one easy way to get fish like perch and other panfish. just cut a small peice of a nightcrawler and set the worm near the sharp end and make an easy cast at the fish and watch them go nuts on the bait. I caught 25 perch in 1 hour. July 27, 2011
Wax Worms I ordered 500 wax worms for an early spring fishing trip. Bait was received well packaged and on time (within 7 days). All bait was received alive and ready to use. I kept them refrigerated until it was time for my trip and after 9 days in the fridge, they were still in great shape. Our fishing group used these wax worms for approx. 1 week with no issues. This was the second year in a row that I ordered the wax worms thru BPS and have been quite satisfied. The price for these wax worms is very good compared to other bait dealers in my area.

the best bait for bass is night crawlers but the better bait is shad. panfish like the nightcrawlers or the meal worms. The best for catfish is anything that moves.

A: 
Red worms are more formally known as eisenia fetida and are the most popular composting worm in the United States. These worms have a few other aliases including brandling worms, tiger worms or red wigglers,Euro Red Worms. No matter what they are called they are definitely the best worm for composting and fish love them !

yes they do, however keep up with refreshing the box everyonce in a while including an occasional change of bedding. Better to keep them a little dry then a little too wet. Good luck fishing.

Best Answer
A: 
Good topic for discussion - I’m sure lots of people wonder about this.
I’m not 100% sure what you mean when you say “Nightcrawler”, but I suspect you might be referring to “Canadian Nightcrawlers” (aka Dew Worms - Lumbricus terrestris). Assuming this is the worm you are talking about, unfortunately they do not make good composting worms, nor are they easy to breed in captivity. If you have open-bottomed bins sitting on soil outside, there is a good chance that Dew Worms (and other soil dwellers) will venture in to the lower reaches of your bin, feeding on some of the organic matter while they are there. But these worms just aren’t suited for the crowded, warm conditions in rich organic matter that Red Worms love so much. They might survive for awhile, but you certainly won’t get a breeding population of them.

If on the other hand we are talking about ‘European Nightcrawlers‘ (Eisenia hortensis), then the answer is yes - Euros and Reds can be combined in the same bin. Some actually like having both in the same system since the Euros tend to go down where the moisture content is higher, while the Reds remain up near the top - thus ensuring that the entire contents are getting vermi-processed.

Red Worms do tend to be a more prolific and active worm however, so mixing the two might not always be the best idea if you want your Euros to really thrive. Also, it might be a bit of a pain to separate the two species later on if you want to sell them etc.

The box is like a stirafoam cooler. It is about 14" x 14" and about 6 inches tall. THe crawlers are excellent and for what ever reason, they grow. From the day you recieve them, a few days later they are bigger.

A: 
Wax worms need to keep cool and dry. Keep cool at 45 degrees. At this temperature the waxworms should live a few months.

Always remove any dead (black) wax worms from the container

If you use bedding and it becomes moist, lids should be removed to allow moisture to escape. Bedding material can include sawdust or aspen/pine shavings (the same material used in hamster cages).
