  • You would be surprised to know how many worms are right under the surface of your yard lol.
    They come up when it rains because as a pp stated their holes fill with water and they come up to avoid drowning.

  • Worms are good! Just gently relocate them to your lawn or garden or flower beds and let them do their work!

  • holy cow they are gross! i remember one day i went out before daylight to look for the stupid dog, and was halfway down our 150' driveway before i realized i was walking all over big ol' fat ones! we had really healthy lawns at that house, and lots of moles-of course!, so these worms were like small, skinny snakes.
    ..icky on bare feet, i tell ya!
