Worms

Anonymous added on June 15, 2011 | Answered

I am growing cucumbers and recently went to transplant them because they were not growing any bigger. I found lots of little white worms in the soil. Are they eating the root system, and can I get rid of them or start over? Please help.

    These could be anything from grubs to whitefly larvae, or even garden symphylans (which is generally more common). This article will help determine if these worms are the ones in question: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/garden-symphylan-small-white-worm-like-bugs-in-the-soil.htm
