soft soil dueto earthworms
Hell all! Let me start by say in this is first post so I'm not sure I this is even on the right topic. OK I purchased a house Las Dec. In SC. It is in a "wet area" as I'm.abot 2-3 hundred yards from a river. I have experienced problems this year with wet and soggy conditions due to the amount of rain we have had. Were like over 15 inches normal for this time of year. I had had brown patch in early summer/late fall. And am just getting over that and now I have a horrible earthworm problem and it is in a concentrated area. I know some people will say to leave them be, and that they are benifical to the lawn. But it is k lawn and I have done a lot to make the lawn come from where it was to where it is now. And they are ruining the area they are. At first I thought it was mole crickets so I did the lemon soap soak test, and no mole crickets, plus I have been treating for insects. When I did the soap soak all that came out was works, no nymphs or and otherole crickets. Upon further research I found the cause to be worms. I want to know if anyone had had this problem and what they did to solve it. With the already soggy prone soil they are turning the affected area to pure mud. And I want them gone. I can manage without how ever beneficial they are. Here are some pics some of the area where they are and the others O the area not affected. Thanks and once again sorry if this is on the wrong area.
