Q.

Is mealworm frass good for blueberry bushes?

Zone Germanton , NC | sandielh added on March 14, 2019 | Answered

I have a couple large garbage cans full of the frass I sifted from raising my mealworms. I'd like to know if its good to add it to my new blueberry bush beds. ( Mostly clay and we tilled in sphagnum moss.) Also for my new vegetable garden. (Raised beds with good soil.) How do I use it and can I use too much? Thanks Sandie

Yes it's useful as fertilizer. But according to this article it's pH 7.4 so on the alkaline side, especially for blueberries which require a more acidic soil.

I haven't used it, but according to this information, I would mix it with an ericaceous compost for bed preparation and/or mulching.
