Invasive Jumping Worms: Impact and Control of a New Soil Invader
This Green Shield Certified (GSC) for Landscapes webinar will draw on Bradley Herrick's research of invasive jumping worms. Many species are non-native and, in certain habitats, can be invasive and detrimental to the health of soils, plants, and wildlife. Jumping worms are a new group of earthworms that are spreading quickly in North America and have shown to negatively impact native forests and gardens. This webinar will give an overview of earthworm biology and ecology with a focus on the impacts of jumping worms. Best management practices, control methods, and the latest research will be discussed.
This presentation qualifies for pesticide applicator license continuing education units in FL, IN, OH and MI.
Bradley Herrick leads research and ecological restoration studies at the UW-Madison Arboretum.
