Fetida vs Andrei

11otisJuly 8, 2014

Lately, when handling the worms, I did not get the pungent smell E. Fetida exude. I think they are mostly (or ALL) E. Andrei now.
When I started, I bought from dealers claiming they were E. Fetida and I didn't mix them with anything else. The ones I suspected weren't E. Fetida (my very first worm purchase), I have kept separate since.
Any thoughts out there?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

They are so closely similar that you can hardly tell the difference without some sort of biological analysis of their....DNA?

Overthinking this thing can make it way too stressful.
