How long can I keep Nightcrawlers

4 posts in this topic

I bought crawlers a week ago and have not used them all. How long will they stay alive in the fridge? I have them in a larger plastic crawler container that 6 dozen of them came in. They seem to die on me after about a week. Is that normal?

Thx, LovenLifeGuy

Are you by chance not punching a few breathing holes it the container? That and if the temp is too low you may freeze them.

I've kept crawlers in the refrigerator for at least a month by just keeping the soil-like substance they are in slightly moist.

I have one of those yellow ended crawler keepers. I use worm bedding in it. I had some in the garage fridge for the entire winter. Actually I had forgotten about them. They were all fairly healthy when I opened it up... I had been expecting it to be just nasty! I let them go in the yard, I figured after that they desereved to be free! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
