Only accept plants...
- From gardeners that have looked for jumping worms
- That don't come from an area known to have jumping worms.
- If there is no evidence (like soil that resembles coffee grounds) to suspect there are jumping worms at the site that produced these plants/materials.
Use these practices to prevent their spread:
- Remove soil from all plants before transporting them
- This limits the spread of weeds and worms by removing most earthworm egg cases or weed seeds.
- Wash roots
