  • small white worms in potatoes

    Created by clara rundle on

    Hello –

    My wife has small white worms, about an inch long, in her potatoes. They are in an area where the carrots were last year. Any suggestions?

    Hello –

    Those small, white worms in your potatoes are most likely wireworms (1 to 1-1/2″ long). Common in home vegetable gardens, they attack germinating seeds, roots, bulbs and tubers. Here’s a link that should help:

    Good luck!
