Default Re: Why earthworms?

I have seen a lot of people saying that they take worms from their gardens or yard to feed their axolotls, and a lot of other people saying that this is dangerous to do because these worms might have diseases or parasites.

Which answer is the right answer?

Right now I feed my axolotls only store bought worms but this can be inconvenient, during fishing seasons it is very hard to find worms in any store. I also live out in the country, a good 30 minutes from any store that sells worms. I know I have plenty of worms in my yard and garden that would be a much more convenient source for me and my axolotls.

Has anyone actually experienced their axolotl getting a parasite or disease from a worm they dug up from their garden?
