Question Why is there so many worms in my yard?

I know this is a bit of a weird question but Iíve always wanted to ask..... Last year when I was digging up the backyard for my plants I noticed tons of yucky earthworms and other worms in the soil. Why would there be so many? What exactly do worms do for the soil or your plants like Iíve seen mentioned before? Ideas? Thoughts? Thanks in advance as always!

Worms help to increase the amount of air and water that gets into the soil. They break down organic matter, like leaves and grass into things that plants can use. When they eat, they leave behind castings that are a very valuable type of fertilizer. Earthworms are like free farm help.

Happy Growing!

Lots of earthworms mean you have very good soil. Adding organic matter feeds the worms their wast mater is very good fertalizer.

Thanks so much for explaining about the worms! I had no idea that they could be so helpful! Mind you I still donít like them though!

Now you know why I was so happy to bring a bunch home with that stuff I dug up on the side of the road, and wanted to know if I could use the worms from my local bait shop to add to my raised beds. There's a method to my madness.

Send me some, LOL!

Yeah I guess my Mom was right! I should have collected them and sold them!
