Eudrilus Eugeniae-The African
as a kid, In the 70s. I raised redworms-under my rabbits. I had read about these "hybread, or African" red worms, and was led to beleave, they were hard to raise, would wander off, and they couldent survive the cold.
After many years of tring to get my redworms, to a larger size. I tried the african or so called hybread redworm. to find to my dissbeleaf, all I had read was not rue at all, and likely put into print and now the internet by Redworm farmers that did not want to loose there sales.
I now have so many Africans, my only concern, is how to keep them all fed. They are to me the easyest worm to raise, yes they "prefer" a warm temp. but produce and feed at the same temp as the common red worm.
When it gets real cold out side "all of your worms may die-----Redworms, Europeans, and Africans...
no worms do well at 20 or 30, or even 40 degrees, so what is the big deal?
Africans, out preform any other worm, in North America. and that is a fact-by someone that raise's Africans, Redworms and Europeans.
