Bat Dung Tea

Zone 7B | plantlady56 added on October 23, 2012 | Answered

After making the tea and then straining it, what do you do with the dung that is strained off of the tea? Why can't you just shake it up and water with the dung in the tea?

The manure tea needs to be diluted. Leaving the manure in it can result in too much nitrogen, which can subsequently result in buring of the plant roots. You can simply toss the bat dung in the compost pile or spread it throughout the garden soil and leave over winter.
