Insect frass

Frass (insect manure) is a great natural fertilizer for plants. This 2-3-2 fertilizer contains a balanced mix of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium to help both indoor and outdoor plants grow! Frass also contains a high amount of chitin, which helps boost plant immune defenses.

Recommended uses

Frass is great for indoor plant use, since it is odor free, contains no insects or insect eggs, and can be added dry to small pots or trays.

Frass is also a great addition to soil, because this chitin-rich product helps defend against soil nematodes and pathogens while replenishing essential nutrients. Use outdoors on vegetables and flowering plants.



Mealworms are an excellent source of essential amino acids. At more than 50% protein, and 25% fat, our mealworms provide the nutrition needed for healthy fish and birds. Feed your flock with only the highest quality mealworms. Most dried mealworms on the market are imported from overseas, but we farm our mealworms in Seattle using American-grown organic ingredients. Think global and buy local!

Recommended uses

Backyard chickens deserve this healthy treat! Our mealworms are a favorite among all types of birds, from chickens and ducks to migrating songbirds. Supplement your bird’s diet with a few scoops each week.

Commercial farmers can also benefit from feeding mealworms to their birds or fish. Insects have a positive impact on gut microbiota, minimizing the need for antibiotics in commercial farming. Contact us for bulk pricing!
