The Croquet Association advises in its publication 'Croquet Lawns: Their establishment, improvement and maintenance', section 58:
Example products: 'Worm Clear Plus' (spray) and 'Sulphur Worm' (granules) from http://www.greenacres.eu.com/ also http://www.greengard....co.uk/lawn.htm (Oct 2005). The product 'CastClear' (2010) claims to deter worms - its principal component is ammonium thiosulphate, hence liberating sulphur and acidifying the soil.

Sweep the casts gently with a broom to break them up, and try not to stand on them, as worm cast pancakes make excellent seed bed for weeds.
To remove some worms, stick fork into lawn and wiggle. Worms will think they are being chased by a mole, and will surface, and will come up nice and clean. Place these worms in the compost heap, or if you know someone who likes fishing, let them have some. Holes left by the fork tines will improve aeration still further.
