Jumping worms have made their way from Asia to the United States.
These worms are also known as "the Alabama Jumper" as they grow tp be eight inches long and can jump up to a foot. They're also "extremely active" and "aggressive," according t experts. These jumpers have "voracious appetites," can detach their body parts, and are hermaphrodites (having both male and female reproductive organs). They'll eat up your plants in no time!
So far they have been spotted in 34 states. They believe the worms were transported by accident on imported landscape plants.
If you find these guys in your garden, you're supposed to stick them in a bag and leave the bag out in the sun for ten minutes before throwing it out.
