How are mealworms beneficial for your gardens and house plants? By their production of FRASS. Mealworm Frass is the excrement from a mealworm after it eats wheat bran. Frass is a dry granular substance with the texture of fine sand.


It contains Chitin and  benefits your soil by not adding any chemicals or toxins, and is a great inexpensive soil amendment in a highly concentrated form. It's also  environmentally safe for water runoff into lakes, streams, and ponds.


Look at the difference. The two Spider Plants (a.k.a Airplane Plants) above were planted the same day. The two cuttings were taken from the same parent plant. The plant on the left was planted using only potting soil. The plant on the right was planted in a mixture of potting soil and frass. The plant on the right is more voluminous and is already producing new spiderettes.
