New Zealand Flatworm

Postby Dr Doob » Fri May 18, 2018 9:44 am

I"ve found these in my garden. My wormery is dead and my compost bin isn"t far behind. I think maybe we should find out exactly how widespread they are in Kintyre, thats why I chose to post here because I believe that the people who could help mapping the infestation are more likly to still be checking the Forum than be on FB and aware of the Environmental impact
