Experts say it's the oldest fertilizer available and can be found in nearly every ecosystem — so why aren't you spooning more insect poop onto our home gardens and greenhouse crops? Along with nutrients, insect frass contains chitin. This is an important component for keeping plant cell walls strong. These stronger cell walls help plants fend off pests and disease. Chitin is an abundant natural polymer and structural component that builds up fungi cell walls and the exoskeletons of arthropods like insects and spiders. When a plant is exposed to chitin, its immune system flags the polymer as a marker of a threatening fungus or insect. While the chitin doesn't actually harm the plant, it triggers an immune response that benefits plant health. This makes sturdy strong plants especially in fruit bearing plants. Just like bat guano or worm castings, insect frass is a natural form of compost. .This means that when you use insect frass to add nutrients to your garden, you are essentially feeding back digested plants to your plants. Thus, making it a perfect, well-rounded form of plant super food. Insect poop — also known as "frass" — contains all the regular nutrients you'd expect from a good manure, including nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and just a tiny bit of it goes a long way when compared to conventional fertilizers. Usage Instructions Direct Application Mix some insect frass in water and let it steep for several hours. Then, use it to drench the roots of your plants. Soil and/or Compost Application Mix into your compost or soil and spray with water to release nutrients into your soil or compost.
