Definition as written by shakemh:
A terrestrial annelid worm that is universally regarded as a helpmate by aerating soil while depositing castings as organic fertilizer.
On the other hand, their movement throughout a garden makes them apt carriers of disease, as well as an attraction for moles whose tunneling after them can turn a lawn into a shambles.
Consequently, it is left to the gardener to weigh the positives and negatives of earthworms in their gardens; then, banishing or cherishing them accordingly.
