Worms are good for the soil, but here in north America we have an invasion of a foreign worm, which is crunching the native species...


Hello @gwajnberg, earthworms perform an important function in the soil apart from decomposition, it allows the aeration of the same, because myestras mobilize generates the opening of spaces that can beneficial to maintain the oxygen of the aerobic microorganisms that developed in these spaces. There are some larvae and / or caterpillars that are insect pests that attack certain crops such as spodoptera frugiperda that affects the corn crop consuming its leaves leaving only the central rib and can also affect the cob.

See you later friend, it's a matter of identifying the pathogenic agent, in order to take the appropriate measures. Have a great week.
