Thin White Wire-Like Worms

Anonymous added on June 20, 2011 | Answered

I have found several plants affected with a thin wire-like worm in my garden. They appear to be waving in the air after a rain. I would like to know what pest this is. I thought it was a wireworm but does not look like the ones in the photos I have seen. How do I treat this?
