Something Else to Worry About

In today's Register-Star, John Mason has an article about yet another problematic invasive species--Lumbricus rubellus: "Worms threaten local forest land." Apparently, these exceptionally large earthworms are a particular threat to maple trees, and this isn't just a problem for wooded areas in rural parts of the county. The giant red wrigglers have been found in yards and gardens right here in Hudson.
