for garden use as well. I tried out a mix of reds and tigers the tiger took over and I ended up with a lot of small worms, not much good as bait. So here I go again A little wiser I hope this time.
All the best
I had the same problem when I first bought Africans. They came mixed with other worms and of course the Africans never grew and were our competed by the other worms. Next time I purchsed them I was a bit smarter and pulled them out one by one to ensure I only had Africans in the bed. Turns out the other worms were Lumbricus rubellus and they grew extremely well and twice the size of the biggest Reds and much fatter.
I used to read articles in the American Bee Keeper magizine. There was a writer called O.B.Wiser. I used to think he was so clever till the penny dropped one day, Older But Wiser lol
