Down To Earth’s Insect Frass is an all-natural fertilizer produced through sustainable insect farming and derived from the larvae manure and exoskeletons of black soldier flies. The larvae are raised on pre-consumer food waste collected from local grocery stores, produce distributors and food processors. After harvesting, they are turned into a renewable source of high value protein for animals and beneficial nutrients for plants. DTE Insect Frass is an excellent fertilizer for all types of plants and shares many of the same traits as other popular organic soil amendments such as bat guano and worm castings.
Outdoor Containers: For new plantings, add 1-2 tbsp per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 1 cup per cubic foot. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tbsp per gallon into the soil surface once each month during the growing season.
Trees & Shrubs: Spread 1 lb per 1″ of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well. For new trees, prepare transplant hole and mix 1-2 cups with the backfill soil. Use amended soil to fill in around the new tree and water in well.
