Worms Alive – live worms for all occasions – specialising in:
- Fishing Worms – European Nightcrawlers in various convenient quantities,
- Composting worms – Red Wigglers in 500 or 1000 quantities,
- Worm Farms – for composting, fishing & pet feeding (local pickup only),
- Organic Fertiliser – Worm castings (slow release) & Worm Tea (quick release),
- Worm Food – High protein food to grow your worms quicker.
Live 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: “European Nightcrawlers catch more fish!”

Feeding your pets
Worm eating pets love European Nightcrawlers… I’ve not heard of any worm predators turning their nose up at them. Euros are a particular favourite of Axolotls.
Other pets that love to eat Euros include: birds, turtles, fish, snakes, rats, bearded dragons and other reptiles.
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. If price isn’t an issue, then Euros are a better composting worm.
