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.
