    The worms are seen mainly when it rains. In these pics they are on the pool deck.

    Earthworms / Nightcrawlers. I usually call the ones that big nightcrawlers.

    They are benifical for the soil, but if there gets to be too many their castings around their holes can almost ruin the use-ability of a lawn. Walk out- twist an ankle, try to mow- mower just bounces everywhere...

    Looked at them this AM. They are very small, the biggest ones are about an inch long. They travel from flooded/wet plant beds to dry ground, mainly in the cool evenings or mornings. Never seen in the heat of day, unless dead on the driveway (fried).
