I have always liked worms so I always avoid ‘slicing’ the with My spade when I can.
But what did I actually know about these slimy creatures that inhabit the soil we dig ?
Not much as it turns out !
Earthworms are everywhere, even if you can’t see them. They’re so common, in fact, that it’s all too easy to forget the amazing things earthworms do. They may be gross, but earthworms are harmless to people and can even be helpful. Earthworms’ uses go far beyond merely serving as bait on a hook.
Why are earthworms important? Worms are a crucial part of the food chain, and can help or harm environments where they’re introduced. They’re decomposers who can be used in fertilizer, soil-processors who can help farmers, and amazing creatures that can regenerate their bodies. These interesting earthworm facts might make you think differently about these squiggly subterranean neighbours.
