Small Whitish Worms in Soil

kriskg added on May 20, 2014 | Answered

I have small whitish worms in the soil in my greenhouse. They are very slim and about a quarter inch long, wiggle a lot when soil is disturbed. They were there last year and burrowed in the root vegetables and made them unusable. They are still there and I want them gone before the veggies start growing. What are they and what should I do to get rid of them?

I can't tell what they are from the description. Take some samples to a the specialists at the nearest botanical garden, university biology department, or agricultural station.
