Invasive species have been in the news a lot lately. You’ve probably heard about the possibility of the Joro spider in Connecticut. Thankfully, those non-native arachnids don’t seem to be causing too much of a problem in the ecosystems where they’ve appeared so far. One invasive species that is most definitely causing issues in every area it’s appeared so far is the hammerhead worm. This slimy invertebrate is native to Asia and has been wreaking havoc on American soil ecosystems since it entered the country years ago.
