NZ flatworms HAVE ravaged my garden, from a walnut tree bought for me (from a reputable family-run nursery) about 6 years ago they have spread and destroyed the earthworm population. These days I am surprised and delighted to see an earthworm...
I set traps for them; they like to curl up under rocks or slates laid flat on the soil. I have about 6 traps and check under them every morning. I feed the ones I find to the chickens so I know for sure they are dead. Still keep finding more; one morning I found 5 massive ones. Very depressing.
Hope you manage to keep them under control. Apparently they don't like the heat so if we have a scorching summer they might all die.
