Oh man.

The Guardian:

An invasive worm species known for its “voracious appetite” and ability to jump a foot in the air is raising alarm in California, where scientists have expressed concerns about the threat the worms pose to forest ecosystems.

The Amynthas agrestis, also known as the Asian jumping worm, Alabama jumper or crazy snake worm, have been spotted in California in recent months. The earthworm is native to east Asia, particularly to Japan and the Korean peninsula. However, in recent years the worms made their way to North America via various landscape plants that have been imported from the region.

Initially spotted in Wisconsin and across the New England area in 2013, the worms have spread westward into dozens of states, and were first seen in California’s Napa county in July.

The worms, which can grow up to 8in in length and have a milky white band around their dark body, are distinctive for their theatrical behavior, including wild movements and even detaching body parts. They’re also hermaphrodites and can reproduce without mating, and produce cocoons at the soil surface.

These earthworms are extremely active, aggressive, and have voracious appetites,” California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) warned in a report. “True to their name, they jump and thrash immediately when handled, behaving more like a threatened snake than a worm, sometimes even breaking and shedding their tail when caught.”


Of greater concern, however, is the worms’ impact on the environment. Jumping worms can destroy a forest ecosystem by chewing through fallen leaves, in turn destroying the top layer of forest soil upon which many plants and organisms depend.

They are destructive and cause severe damage to hardwood forests, especially those consisting of maple, basswood, red oak, poplar or birch species that rely on thick layers of leaf litter that serve as rooting medium,” according to the CDFA report, which notes that the “voracious feeders” can devour a cover of organic material in “two to five years”.
It’s like the old saying goes: worse things have happened to better people.

An antonymous robot was created to kill slugs. It harvested slugs for a portion of it's energy. A member of the design team was gave a talk to a bunch of researchers. A woman in the audience asked whether slugs suffered when they were being fermented for their energy. Sheepishly, the guy told her that they probably suffered. She said "good, I hate slugs." She was came from a farming background.

It might have been this project, or a predecessor.



A prototype robot capable of hunting down over 100 slugs an hour and using their rotting bodies to generate electricity is being developed by engineers at the University of West England's Intelligent Autonomous Systems Laboratory.


Since these worms have a distinctive behavior it might be possible to make machines to zap them. It is a pity that we are too busy Jewing the world to take care of small things like protecting our forests.

We're so lame that we can't even grow our own lawn ornamentation anymore??

I have no doubt that all these invasive species that have showed up in continental US in the last decade have been brought here deliberately by satanic commie jews.

Japanese beetles, marmorated stinkbugs, these crazy worms, and some others I cant think of right now.
Deliberate.

Did I not just finish telling Roy I will be overlord of the worms and spiders?

Doing the work I’m incapable of doing; good job, worms. 👍

California has already decided to give the undocumented worms driver's licenses.
