Welcome to Worms Alive

Live worms for all occasions…

Worms Alive specialises in the packaging & supply of European Nightcrawler worms & Red Wiggler worms for fishing, feeding your pets or composting. Worms for all occasions

The primary uses for live worms
  • Fishing (in both fresh and brackish waters)
  • Feeding your pets (turtles, reptiles, fish, axolotls and birds)
  • Worm Composting (also known as vermicomposting or vermiculture)

Worms Alive – live worms for all occasions – specialising in small to medium quantities of European Nightcrawlers for fishing or for feeding your pets, but we also supply Red Wigglers in 500 and 1000 quantities, specifically for use in composting worm farms.

Worms are harvested and packed only after orders are received, so they’re only in their shipping containers for a minimal amount of time.


The most popular fishing worms are the European Nightcrawlers. They are larger, have thicker skins (so stay on the hook longer), and are more active under water than most other worms. They can also handle brackish water and very cold water.
I’ve heard time and time again from different fishermen that European Nightcrawlers catch more fish!

Feeding your pets

If your pets are large enough, then Nightcrawlers are the best option. I’ve not heard of any worm predators turning their nose up at them. Nightcrawlers are a particular favourite of Axolotls
Red Wigglers  are a very popular worm amongst the smaller worm predators, but they have a slightly bitter taste that some predators do not like. Other pets that love to eat worms include: birds, turtles, fish, snakes, rats, bearded dragons and other reptiles.

Worm Composting

When it comes to worm composting you need a large quantity of worms! Depending on the quantity of food scraps you intend to  compost, you will need a minimum of 1,000 worms. If you have a larger worm farm possibly much more. Red Wigglers are more popular for composting, as they are a less expensive worm.
