I wasn't sure where to put this but I think it's really interesting: I've always been a bit that even the fresh horse manure I've seen is full of worms as I've always assumed the 'under two weeks and they're dead' scenario was accurate...
Earthworms are a different species from intestinal worms though
Of course, none of this is making any kind of case for anyone buying and using poisons, but I'm a big fan of keeping nutrients out of the waste stream, so this kind of thing makes me happy!
Does it actually say anywhere which chemical was used in the 'worming mix'? I'm pretty sure there are several, rather distinct families of chemicals that are used, and they're bound to have different effects.
