Animal news: You talk anarchy? Huge invasive jumping worms…that’s anarchy

And they’re in the Hudson Valley! You know, that Hudson Valley formed by the Hudson River which flows from upstate New York to…us.

Do these things travel on their own?

Now I’m thinking that guy across the street who has a roof terrace might think of getting a bunch of huge, invasive, destructive jumping worms and letting them jump off the terrace, as an Anarchy Project Statement.

And there’s this:

“Unlike long-naturalized earthworms, these overactive decomposers devastate soil ecosystems, soil structure, nutrient cycling, and the physical stability of plant communities around them,” Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program and Cornell Cooperative Extension said while promoting their “Emerging Species – Watch Out for Jumping Worms” webinar that covered jumping worm biology, anatomy, behavior, identification and their impacts.

And then there’s this:

The jumping worms are also known as crazy snake worm, Alabama jumper or Asian worm. They are smooth glossy gray or brown and 1.5 to 8 inches in length.

Thank you SO much, Ellen Kaye, for keeping me informed. Love ya.

P.S. Is anyone working on a vaccine for this?
