How to use mealworm frass on plant transplanting


* Add a pinch to your soil.

Transplanting—or replanting—is an important event in a plant’s life, like moving to a new house, where a plant is unearthed and either divided or moved to a new location. Add Ecobooster frass to the soil mix and gently pat it down to settle your plant into the bed.

Tip: You can also add a tablespoon of bone meal to the soil mix to encourage root growth. Lastly, water thoroughly.

* Sprinkle over the root zone and water thoroughly.

Plan to add a pound of insect frass to each 20 square feet of garden space. Then, gently dig the top half- foot of soil up, watering it thoroughly before mixing in the frass. For continued benefits, you can top dress the bed with more frass every few weeks throughout the growing season.

* Add 1 1/2 cups of per cubic foot (or 7 gallons) of planting media prior to planting.

Plan on adding one cup of insect frass per cubic foot of potting soil. Then, add a sprinkling on top of the soil every few weeks to maintain the benefits.

Recommended insect frass application rate: weekly and by-weekly.

How to use mealworm frass on plant foliage


* As a Tea for foliage use.

Add a half-cup of insect frass into a gallon of dechlorinated water and use it to drench the roots of your plants within two hours of mixing it. If you have extra you can store it in the fridge for up to a week. Storing the liquid at room temperature will cause it to lose effectiveness.

Recommended insect frass application rate on foliage: in summer can be used daily. And depends of the plant species.



The frass produced as a result of insect production contains nitrogen, therefore any application to land as an organic fertiliser will result in a nitrous oxide emission (both directly and indirectly through leaching and volatilisation of ammonia).

This nutrient’s main responsibility is to ensure that the plant is green. It is found in abundance in rainwater, especially rain that has fallen during a storm with much thunder and lightning, as well as in fertilisers and compost.



Also known as phosphates, this is a nutrient that is often missing in our soil. Its main function is to aid root and stem development. It is not efficient to apply this to the soil surface, as it does not leach into the soil well. As such, it is best to incorporate phosphates into the soil when planting.



Another name for potassium is potash, and it aids plants with the production of flowers.

Potassium is a critical nutrient that plants absorb from the soil, and from fertiliser. It increases disease resistance, helps stalks to grow upright and sturdy, improves drought tolerance, and helps plants get through the winter.



Micronutrients are essential plant nutrients that are found in trace amounts in tissue, but play an imperative role in plant growth and development. Without these nutrients, plant nutrition would be compromised leading to potential declines in plant productivity. Of the 17 elements essential for plant growth, eight are micronutrients: boron (B), chlorine (CI), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo), zinc (Zn) and nickel (Ni).


Chitin and Chitosan

Chitin is a promising soil addition for improving soil quality, plant growth, and plant resilience. Soil treatment with chitin has been shown to decrease the rate of infection of plant roots by nematodes and to increase disease suppressiveness against the fungal soil-borne pathogens Verticillium dahliae and Rhizoctonia solani. The mechanism behind this suppressiveness most often relates to a change in the microbiota in soil and rhizosphere...


Neutral Ph

The pH scale is measured from 0 to 14, with the sweet spot being right in the middle, or pH 7.

This neutral point means your soil is in ideal balance, ensuring your plants thrive, and grow well.

Naturally produced Chitin triggers the immune systems of plants causing them to rev up and defend themselves against predators like root-feeding nematodes and disease pathogens in the soil. 

why usE frass?

Mealworms are digestive powerhouses.

Because insect frass is made entirely from digested plants and exoskeletons, the organic plant food is full of the nutrients that plants require to grow robustly, plus millions of beneficial microbes from the guts of insects. It also contains large quantities of Chitin, which triggers the immune systems of plants causing them to rev up and defend themselves against predators like root-feeding nematodes and disease pathogens in the soil. 


  • Supports plant growth under stress.
  • Beneficial microbes for plant growth and production.
  • No nitrates, no heavy metals, methane, or nitrous-oxide emissions.
  • No synthetics chemicals or hormones.
