How to start a nightcrawler farm.


The title says it all. How to start a nightcrawler farm. Lets say you want to make some money. Or maybe you need some fishing bait. It dosen't matter! Whatever the reason it is easy to start a nightcrawler farm. First you need to know is what you need before you catch some worms. You will need a container to keep them in, a filling for your container, food, and a place to keep them. For mine I used a plastic tote and filled with a layer of dirt, layer of leaves, layer of dirt and so on. The nightcrawlers will eat the leaves. But if you have pataeto pellings or fruit rines they like them. Nightcrawlers sometimes eat there weight every day! Next you need to know where to keep them. If you have a place in your fridge that works fine, as long as the temperature is above 32 degees fahrinheit. Make sure that the soil is moist in the cage. If you can't keep it in the fride dig a hole in the yard and put it there. Once the cage is set you need to get the nightcrawlers. How do you know if what you find is a night crawler and not an angle worm? They are much bigger than angle worms. Where do you find them? I look under stones, on my driveway when it rains and when we get the hhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggeeeeeee puddle in my backyard I get tons! Always have enough food in the container and good luck!
