Frass is another word for insect poop. It has properties similar to compost, which makes it a great garden amendment. However, there are no standards for frass quality, and not all frass is created equal.
Frass products that are currently on the market may come from a variety of different insects, or may not even state their origin. These products are generally a byproduct of insect rearing for animal feeds or other uses. As such, the feedstocks used to create the frass are inconsistent and the frass that is left over may contain unwanted materials.
Our frass is derived from 100% black soldier flies (BSF), and our process is designed to create the best quality frass that we can – not a byproduct of something else. Black soldier fly frass is harvested from larvae of the black soldier fly, a native and non-pest insect.
