Question: 229-5201
I have a problem with nightcrawlers. When I cut the lawn it gets very squishy. Išve been told that I am lucky. What can I do to get rid of them? Stanley, Woonsocket, RI

Mort's Answer:
You are indeed fortunate that you have a million landscape elves turning your soil into a fertile, organically enriched environment to grow your lawn, especially, if you do not have 6˛-8˛ of topsoil. You can add 50 lbs. of limestone for each 2500 sq.ft. of lawn in the spring and in the fall. In addition you can erect bird houses and baths to encourage the natural predators. If this does not work, only then would I put down a chemical.
