Jumping worms are invasive species that consume minerals that enrich the soil. They have a distinctive ring 14-15 segments from the head.

Jumping worms, an invasive species, were first identified in Minnesota by Dr. Lee Frelich of the University of Minnesota in 2006. The original sightings were in Hennepin and Ramsey counties but they have spread and have now been identified in 19 Minnesota Counties. This is a problem for gardens and forests.
