Not my field (pun?), but for published science on the topic try Carl 
UnCover's free search web page. http://uncweb.carl.org/ [You don't need 
to sign up - just find the 'search uncover now button' at the top on the page 
which opens from the 'search uncover' link on the home page].   

I got five hits for the simple search "earthworm* and pesticide"

Probably the literature cited of one or two of those papers would give 
further leads.

If perchance someone gave rather better advice than that off-list perhaps 
they could also post it to the list.  Thanks.   

Cheers,
