Neighbour taking night crawlers out of my lawn at night?

Should I tell him not to? He comes over sometimes and tries to get "night crawlers" out of my lawn and other neighbours lawns. Is this going to mess with the Earth worm population? Hurt my lawn? Kind of angers me that he's doing this. He even had the gall to tell me one day that he does it!

To me, the first thing here is that he is coming onto your property (for ANY reason) without permission.

Can't believe he didn't bother to ask first!! I doubt there will be any harm to your lawn.

He probably feels that when he told you this, and you didn't object, then that was tantamount to having obtained your approval.

With all the care you're giving that lawn of yours, you probably have some of the most prize winning worms in the neighborhood.

Does he share some of his fish with you ?

I would ask for some . . . . one hand washes the other !

If he has told you he does this then he is is somewhat asking permission.

If they are indeed night crawlers there is a chance that their population could increase to the point that they start damaging your lawn by creating small mounds and depressions.
You could pay him for keeping your lawn safe!

1. I would not want them on my property without permission.

2. Worms are very beneficial to the soil so removing them is bad. I'd want to keep all my worms.

I do a lot of shooting day and night. My neighbors don't come onto my property without calling first.
