If ya really want to freak yourselves out look at your dirt under 60x hehehe

Rubbing alcohol and it seems to do a number on everything.

different from above but saw this = Though leaf- and stem-feeding insects usually do not cause serious damage to castorbean plants, cutworms and wire worms may reduce stands.from this site http://corn.agronomy.wisc.edu/Crops/CastorBean.aspx

I'd roast those worms in the oven if they were mine lol.

Try looking first,then ask.

By the way dont do your do your food like that.

The FDA allows any bug as long as it needs to be magnified to be seen.

Life in my soil is one thing

Worms is another

I don't know what the hell they are, but if they're pin worms, I'd get rid of the stuff. You'd have to wash thoroughly all the time. You never know when an egg might get caught under a fingernail.

I wonder if it's from uncomposted manure (and are pin worms) or if some flying insect laid eggs, and they're some kind of larvae.

@Misterdirt ...i do not think,its realy pinworms,but they looked alike -in size and color. the soil is the same i used to grow pot and i always use this soil...i NEVER had worms like this in my soil!! maybe they come from the castor beans??? the beans i brought back from Marocco in 2005

not all pots got this worms,all with the same SOIL !!
