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:

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.

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. If price isn’t an issue, then Euros are a better composting worm.
