If they curl up into flat spirals and have a hard sleleton they are, perhaps, millipedes.  Look for tiny legs on the entire underside of the animules.

  They sound like locals, I would not kill them unless the plant shows signs of damage.  They may be part of your ecosystem, and I never kill anything unless I know for sure what it is and what damage it causes.  They do not sound like pests to me.

  Hello Again Friends;

  Little dark colored worms.
  Not earthworms, not red wigglers.............
  They are perhaps 1 to 1.5" long, dark brown, not slimy.
  They are everywhere in the soil.
  They immediately curl into a coil if you handle them.

  Does anybody know what they are?
  Should they be ignored or killed?
  They seem to like the root area of my Saskatoon plants.

  Any ideas?
