Comment:

Hi Stephan I am from Zimbabwe and been a keen worm farmer and teacher for many years . In fact my nickname is "Willie Worm" and I have been using Eisenia fetida all these years. Please will you help me to find some african nightcrawlers (Eudrilus Eugeniae) in South Africa its very difficult to try get them from the USA or Australia. I will travel down to South Africa to fetch them.

Kind regards Willie


ANSWER:

Dear Willie,

thank you for your inquiry. I am glad to hear that you are a keen supporter of worm composting and that you have been promoting the recycling of organic waste with the help of compost worms (Eisenia fetida).

I understand your interest in the African nightcrawlers and would gladly assist you to get your first batch of those valuable worms. Unfortunately I don't know of anyone in South Africa that is stocking "Eudrilus Eugeniae." I am well aware of the problems to import the worms from overseas due to transport issues as well as costs and the necessary health- and import regulations.

Your best bet might be to import the african nightcrawlers from West Africa?

Nevertheless I will publish your inquiry here on my website and if anyone is able to supply African nightcrawler worms either in South Africa or Zimbabwe I would kindly request to please contact me and I will gladly forward the suppliers details to Willie and any other interested worm composting friend.

Kind regards

So far it seems to be very tricky to find African nightcrawlers in South Africa.

But let's spread the word and hopefully sooner or later someone should be able to supply them

Be careful of this guy at this email palms@live.co.za he is a crook. His name is Etienne Viviers. He will promise that he has worms and you deposit money and he is nowhere to be found.

African Nightcrawlers
by: Charl

I live in the Western Cape and would like to know how to get hold of African Night-crawlers. I have Red Wigglers, but was told the African Night-crawlers are better.
I'm sure there are import regulations that prohibit ordering them from the US.
Thank you
