The Q&A Archives: Plant with wormy soill

Question: I am transplanting my plants from old small pots to new larger pots. In one pot, I found several worms in it. Is it still ok to put those worms on the larger new pots. Or should I pick and destroy them? Thank you.

Answer: If they are worms (earthworms or red wigglers) they're okay in the soil. If they are short and fat, they're grubs and you should destroy them.
