Worms in compact clay soil

2 months ago

Soil in neighborhood is expansive ,black clay that would benefit from addition of organic matter which isn't planed. As evidenced by casting mounds on surface there's worm activity in the soil. I'd like to increase worm population but all information I can find is about night crawlers and red wigglers which thrive in organic materials. These are about 3x size of wigglers with consistent color and no ring around body. I have raised beds, Hugey mounds and amended landscape beds where wigglers thrive but rarly see one of these. Same for compost sitting on ground,wigglers come but not these. Can anyone point me to information regarding this type worm and how to promote population growth?
