|How can I do away with nightcrawlers and earthworms in my private putting green? |
I appreciate all the answers you have been giving me and I hope I am not a bother.
|The presence of earthworms is a good sign--it means that your soil is rich and healthy. The worms help aerate the soil, making it a better environment for grass roots.|
Earthworms dislike compacted and dry soil. (Then again, so does grass...) If you've been watering your green frequently, you might cut back. Water deeply once in a while, instead of frequent shallow watering.
Other than that...do you know of anyone who likes to fish? Maybe you could find a local child who would love to come collect them after a rain...after all, most fisherman have to buy their nightcrawlers!
By the way, it's no bother at all. That's what we're here for! We enjoy helping our fellow gardeners!
