    Crazy Worm, (Amynthas agrestis), is an invasive earthworm native to East Asia. This destructive pest was found in Wisconsin in 2013. It is known and sold under a variety of common names including crazy worms and Alabama worms.  It has not been found in Iowa at this time.  Please let me know if you do find this invasive pest.  They move much like a snake and jump.  The are such aggressive feeders that little to no plant regeneration can occur.

    Please let me know if you have found them.  Destroy them if you have them in your compost bins.
