Do cut worms eat basil?
Worms have tiny mouths and will take extremely small bits out ofthings like bacteria, fungi and protozoa. The love organic mattersuch as plants, fruit, compost heaps of cut grass, potato peelingsand decaying animals. When the food is too large for their mouthsthey moisten it to make it soft and suck… it in. Worms have no teeth and the "gizzard" does all the work. Grains ofsand or soil are ingested along with the food and a grindingprocess occurs. When the food leaves the worm's gizzard, it goesinto the intestine and is dissolved and absorbed into the worm'sblood. You cannot cut their head off earthworms or cut them in the middleto try to grow two worms. Cutting off any vital organs will killthem. However, if you cut the tail end off a worm (not advisable),then they will grow another one. Worms are essential in gardens because they keep the soil soft,aerated, and full of nutrients which are good for your plants. Whenit rains hard, worms will surface to the top of the soil if thereisn't enough airspace for them to get oxygen. (MORE)

When the food leaves the worm's gizzard is goes into the intestine and is dissolved and absorbed into the worm's blood which also keeps the worms moist and strong. See the link below. (MORE)
you do not even if you want to do not you will have to go to the hospital
a planaria worm will grow back in to two separate worms . What it says below is not true kind of. Today I cut a worm in half, at first I thought I killed it but then I noticed The tail side started moving around. You know a cats tail well it was moving like that but really fast around the ground. T…he head side just took off like a normal worm through the grass. I took both sides of the worm home and noticed after 3 or 4 hours that the head part grew its tail back and it was now just a short wimpy worm. The tail part did not grow back though, it simpley died after 3-4 hours. So now you know that if you cut a worm in half it will not make 2 worms just simpley heals it self after hours and the other half stops moving... :) . The worm dies a very painful death. It is pure myth that it creates two worms as if you take a time to look up what makes a worm you will see it does indeed have a top and a bottom, so to speak. So, don't rush out and think if i cut this worm in half he will have a little friend to hang out with....coz he wont! :) (MORE)
They will not live. However, they will stay alive for a few hours just as a chicken will stay alive after chopping off it's head for a few minutes. actually they will live. they will grow tails again. I have played with worms since i was a child. They have more than 1 heart and more than 1 brain. … a planaria worm will grow back in to two separate worms if you cut it in half, Yes this is the right answer but i think they have 4 hearts and live forever and they grow back (MORE)

I am struggling with the same problem.

Next I plan on scraping out the top layer of soil and replacing. (MORE)

If you cut a worm in half, the half with the head on it, the tail will grow back. It will NOT become two worms!!!
Place your freshly cut basil stems in a glass of water, like flowers in a vase. Refrigerate until ready for use. It will last 5 to 7 days this way. If I have extra basil I chiffonade it (cut into thin ribbons) and freeze it with water in an ice cube tray. Then bag the cubes for later inclusion in… soups and sauces. Frozen this way it will keep up to a year. (MORE)
Not all worms. Earthworms are an excellent example of when this does happen, but most worms will most likely die.
No. You will just have two halves of one worm because if you cut it, the parts won't necessarily have all the whole organs and a brain that they need in order survive independently. If it does regrow, only the part with the brain can survive.
Nursing Herbal Medicine Handbook (Eds.: J. A. Schilling McCann, W. J. Kelly; Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins; pg. 27-28) says, "Basil contains estragole (70% to 85% of essential oil) as a major component and smaller amounts of safrole. Estragole may have mutagenic effects if taken internall…y in massive amounts, but it's safe to use as a spice....Pregnant women, breast-feeding women, infants, and young children should avoid using basil" in medicinal quantities. In plain English, you can use it in food, but using the essential oil is not safe in pregnancy. (MORE)
it would continue to live because worms have 4 hearts. :) But if you cut a worm in half and it doesent keep moving its because that's really just half of a worm that someone already cut in half
Only parasitic worms adapted to living in digestive tracts can do so. Worms of that type live and grow in the intestines rather than the stomach.
I have fed both my Sarasa goldfish fresh basil on occasions and they seem to enjoy it alot. I feed them all sorts of fruit, veg and live foods to keep them healthy and happy. Things like: cooked shelled peas lettuce spinach orange -skin and piff removed chunks of cucumber-great play toy to…o. They love to get the seeds out from the middle. frozen and live bloodworms, ect Be careful you do not overfeed them and keep an eye on water parameters-not to much sugary foods, so orange as an occasional treat. Fish are ominvores so they benefit from a whole range of foods. Dont feed anything processed or un-natural. (MORE)

Basil has two major phytonutrients: flavonoids and volatile oils. Basil can: . Protect your DNA : The unique array of flavonoids found in basil provide protection at the cellular level. Orientin and vicenin are two water-soluble flavonoids in basil. In studies on human white blood cells; these c…omponents of basil protect cell structures and chromosomes from radiation and oxygen-based damage. . Fight infection : The volatile oils in basil, which contain estragole, linalool, cineole, eugenol, sabinene, myrcene, and limonene, protect against unwanted growth of numerous bacteria, including: Listeria monocytogenes , Staphylococcus aureus , Escherichia coli O:157:H7 , Yersinia enterocolitica , and Pseudomonas aeruginosa . Essential oil from basil leaves inhibit strains of bacteria from the genera Staphylococcus , Enterococcus and Pseudomonas , all of which are widespread and highly resistant to antibiotics. Washing produce in solution containing just 1% basil essential oil reduces the number of Shigella , an infectious bacteria that triggers diarrhea and may cause significant, undetected intestinal damage. It makes good sense to include basil and thyme in more of your recipes, particularly for foods that are eaten raw, such as salads. Adding fresh basil to your next vinaigrette will not only enhance the flavor of your fresh greens, but will help ensure that the fresh produce you consume is safe to eat. . Fight inflammation : The eugenol component of basil's volatile oils can block the activity of an enzyme in your body called cyclooxygenase (COX). Many over-the-counter non-steriodal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS), including aspirin and ibuprofen, work by inhibiting this same enzyme. This enzyme-inhibiting effect of the eugenol in basil qualifies basil as an anti-inflammatory food that can provide relief for people with health problems like rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory bowel conditions. . Promote cardiovascular health : Basil is a very good source of carotenoids such as beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a more powerful anti-oxidant than retinoid vitamin A and protects epithelial cells (the cells that form the lining of numerous body structures including your blood vessels) from free radical damage. It also helps prevent free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol in your blood stream. Oxidized cholesterol builds up on blood vessel walls, causing atherosclerosis, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. The beta-carotene in basil may also help to slow the progression of asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis while protecting cells from further damage. Basil is also a good source of magnesium, which promotes cardiovascular health by prompting muscles and blood vessels to relax, thus improving blood flow and lessening the risk of irregular heart rhythms or a spasms of the heart muscle or a blood vessel. Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K and a very good source of iron, calcium and vitamin A. In addition, basil is a good source of dietary fiber, manganese, magnesium, vitamin C and potassium. Basil is a very flavorful and strong-scented herb, so it will add a nice twist to your meal. (MORE)
I personally wouldn't recomend it, in a caged habitat they would prefer to have live locusts than basil, I'm not sure it would be a great idea to feed them basil.

A knife is the best choice. You can use scissors though but its cut will not be as fine as the knife's.
It does hurt the worm. For earthworms only the part containing the nerve center (it's too simple to be an actual brain) can survive, and only if the rest of the body isn't too badly damage. If it does survive the missing part will regrow, but it takes energy to do that.
