|It sounds weird, but my husband claims that red earthworms are eating my Delphimiums at night. So far, I haven't seen these first hand, so I can't confirm what they are. Is it possible? We are in SE Florida, zone 10. Then what do I use to control the little beasties?

|Red worms don't feed on live plants. They are attracted to decomposing organic matter but they aren't interested in your live plants. Since red worms are great recyclers, there's no control I can recommend. Wish I could offer more assistance.
