If you are finding earthworms (annelids) in your potting mix, I'd consider that a good sign.

As far as nematodes, I've heard that the are so numerous they effectively cover every surface, and that most are just microscopically small, so we don't ever see them (kinda like how bacteria are on everything, I guess).

I imagine it would be easy enough for an earthworm to find it's way into the potting mix, either in the production/packaging, or while it's sitting around (especially if it's in contact with the ground).

And, hey - free fishfood!
