Talkback: New Zealand flatworms

Posted: 03/10/2012 at 15:09
Having noted a spectacular reduction in earth worms, although not tiger worms, in my vegetable garden I have begun a 'vendetta' on the flatworms and over the last 7 days have trapped and destroyed a total of 31 of them by laying black plastic sheeting on cleared areas of the vegetable plot.
I should mention that a report completed in 2000 by the departments involved in this type of work suggested that earthworm numbers did not appear to reduce when flatworms were found, however, from my experience and others commenting on this problem this would not appear to be the case - check'flatworms' on the web to access this report.
