The Q&A Archives: earth worms

Question: Whats the best way to get rid of earthworks and other insects?

Answer: Earthworms are important for healthy soils. They aerate it, they digest it and return castings, which are mineral rich and provide nutrients to plant roots. I can't recommend anything for getting rid of them. In fact, I don't think you really can - they just naturally work their way through the soils.
