#389: The Destructive Habits of the Asian Earthworm



In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#389: The Destructive Habits of the Asian Earthworm In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Bradley Herrick, research ecologist at UW Madison about the destructive habits of the Asian earthworm.

The Asian earthworm has been in the USA for a little over 70 years and not many people up to this point have been paying much attention to them. That is however, until reserachers found that the Asian earthworm can be harmful to the home vegetable garden.

Brad is going to tell us all about the Asian earthworm, why they are different than other earthworms as well as why they are harmful to the garden as opposed to being helpful.

From there he is going to tell us about what the latest research is telling us in regards to earthworm prevention, the makeup of the soil caused by the Asian earthworm and some steps you can take to reduce their damage to your home vegetable garden

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
