    Hi - not sure what this is - found it under some slabs - like a worm but fatter and shorter. Very active when disturbed - looks like a larva for something - not sure whether to keep it or get rid if it is a pest - any ideas?
    Thanks
    Will

    Hi and Welcome to GC... A real pest, but you could buy some nematodes and water them in and get rid of them @wjmarlow
