Question: I have a major problem. Earthworms!! We are infested with them. They cover the lawn and the patio, and they have even started crawling through the storm door. It’s horrible. I know they are good for my soil, but I really don’t like opening my door and seeing my patio covered in worms. Does anyone know what I can use to get rid of them?

Answer: It’s too bad that you don’t fish or, better yet,own a bait shop. It’s hard to believe that birds and other small animals aren’t feasting on your property. There are chemicals that kill grubs that will also kill earthworms, but it seems a shame to have to go that route. Chickens love earthworms. A half a dozen or so fowl should solve your problems and keep you in eggs to boot.
