Top, Eisenia foetida (redwiggler). Middle, Eisenia hortensis (European nightcrawler). Bottom, Lumbricus terrestris (Canadian nightcrawler).

I can't see much if any difference. But every worm "expert" says never bring nightcrawlers, the worms found in your garden, into a closed vermicomposting system. I can't remember why. But will find out. Again.


  1. Can I use your image of the Canadian night crawler for my web site?

  2. I lifted them from the internet...probably from google images. And I should have noted the source but obviously I didn't. So use them of course, but don't give me credit that I don't deserve. Thanks for asking though.
