Outdoor Patch: Do worms eat mycelium?
    #14780519 - 07/17/11 08:28 AM (3 years, 4 months ago)

I have an outdoor patch and have found a couple night crawlers burrowing thru it... I also discovered probably 50+ centipedes but am not too worried about them. Anyone have an answer on this? Thank ya!

Leave them be.  They're part of nature, and when you're growing outdoors, nature will always be in your garden.  Earthworms are eating decomposing plant material and centipedes are carnivores.

Worms will eat the mycellium,at least they do when the substrate is cow dung.They burrow through it making tunnels eating through everything in their path.I'm not sure how much damage it does though.I found this also.

Worms eat different kinds of foods, and it depends on the place they live in. Worm food consists of dead plants, grass and leaves on the ground. They feed on the fungus and bacteria growing on these leaves to survive. The surface worms may eat fruit and vegetable scraps thrown in the bins by humans. Worm food includes organic matter, even dead animals. Worms used for vermicomposting, love to eat coffee grounds, cardboard, melon rinds, even wood shavings! They may even consume hair in small proportions.
