Hammerhead Worms – Bipalium
Categories: Bugs

I was outside this morning when I saw a big long worm crawling in the driveway. Worms don’t really bug me and I don’t usually pay much attention to them but this one caught my eye. Not only was he super long but he had a really funny shaped head kinda like a shovel.

After a little online research I learned that they are called Bipalium or Hammerhead Worms. You can check out the Wikipedia article here.

Pretty gross, right?

    I have recently come across several of these worms in my yard and back porch. The first one was very tiny and the second one was over 12 inches long. I was just wondering if these are okay to let go along with their business or to eliminate them now.
