Worm Tea are fertilizer and soil enhancer that come to you straight from nature with no alterations or chemical additives. Our product contains more than 60 beneficial elements needed by all your plants, shrubs, trees, lawns and flowers. Regular use maximizes growth and promotes vigorous root development leading to sturdy plant stock, dense leaf formation and spectacularly colorful, eye-catching blossoms.
will help repel juice-sucking insects such as spider mites, aphids, and white flies from all of your plants. Once the plant has absorbed the solution into its system, insects simply find it not to their taste and will generally avoid treated plants. “Plants love it: Insects hate it!”
provide an added benefit of possessing the ability to help fight common diseases and fungal infections such as powdery mildew, rust, black spot, and other common pathogens. Regular leaf spraying inhibits infections
TOXIC CHEMICAL FREE
We have added no artificial chemicals or pesticides to our product to ensure safe, effective use. It will not burn even the most delicate houseplants. Appropriate for use safely on all types of plants, trees, shrubs and lawns. This is an environmentally friendly, nontoxic and nonpolluting product!
USES use teaspoonful for ea plant
Use in liquid form by applying directly on leaves. Nutrients will be absorbed quickly and efficiently through the pores of the plants’ leaves. Plants respond in days. Repeat this treatment on the leaves every week or ten days. Our liquid worm castings may be used to water plants by diluting with aged tap water and applying generously directly to the soil around the base of the plant.
What is LEC (liquid earthworm castings)? It is an organic soil amendment
made from 100% earthworm castings without additives. It is a highly
concentrated liquid easily applied through all irrigations/drip systems
or foliar spray and mixes readily with water,
other fertilizers and herbicides.
4 It is 100% biogradeable, non-toxic, and will not harm the environment. It is a biological
load of trillions of micro-organisms (beneficial bacteria and fungi) per gram. It has more than 12
of the most needed elements for the normal development of the plant. It is a biochemical substance
which includes humic and fulvic acids, as well as auxins, gibberllins, and amino acids, among other
growth enhancers. What will LEC (liquid earthworm castings) do for you? It has high chelating
qualities which facilitates better uptake of nutrients. This means
less use of other fertilizers and
more balance in the soil. It improves the physical, chemical, and biological conditions
of the soil. It helps the plant handle stress from herbicide, prolonged overdoses of agrochemicals, frosts,
droughts, etc. It facilitates the absorption of nutrients by increasing cellular permeability.
It stops retro-gradation of cations and releases tied up minerals into soil .

How Does the Insect Repellency Work?
My best understanding and explanation is:
The relationship between the enzyme chitinase and insect repellency is well documented from academic research. (Extensive research work is now being done to genetically alter plants to produce a high level of chitinase). Using worm castings is a non-toxic, and organic methd of doing the same without genetic alteration.
The enzyme chitinase will dissolve chitin and chitin makes the exoskeleton of a bug. If the level is below detection then it is not toxic to the bug and they can NOT detect it. Increase the level of chitinase above this level and the bug is repelled by the nectar of the plant rather than attracted to it. The bugs reaction to chitinase is similar to our reaction to sour milk. One drop of sour milk mixed into a glass of sweet milk and you will drink the glass with no negative reaction. However, mix in three tablespoons and no one has to convince you to not drink the milk.
Using worm castings triggers the chitinase production level. At this point I can't name the trigger organism. I have a theory that I am researching. I should be able to name the organism soon. Applying the worm castings to the soil at a 10% - 20% mix results in the level of internal chitinase increasing. The 10-20% mix comes from research by Ohio State, Subler, Edwards, et al, regarding the optimum mix for optimum plant growth. Applying a ‡ inch layer to the top of a plant equates to 10%. A 1 inch layer to 20%.
The detection level for the bug is in the range of 1 million cfu/dwg. We have tested plants covered in white flies. The level of chitinase producing organisms is usually less than 300,000 cfu/dwg. One particular hibiscus tested at 260,000 cfu/dwg prior to application. This 10 foot tall hibiscus was covered in white flies. Three months after application the white flies had left the plant totally. The chitinase level had increased to 670,000,000 cfu/dwg.
The speed of repellency is in direct relation to the size of the plant. Spider mites will leave house plants in about two weeks. Aphids will leave roses in less than two months and it will take about three months for all of the white flies to leave a ten foot tall hibiscus.
It appears that this mechanism works for nearly every plant. I have included a list of the plants tested. All of the plants listed were tested by 11 nursery managers/staff and two garden writers. All tests to date have shown success. (These tests were NOT performed by California Vermiculture). We have performed our own tests and shown efficacy have relied on tests by others as support data. Nearly every one of these testers scoffed at the possibility of worm castings being able to repel insects.
People have told me that he could not accept insect repellency. I agreed that the idea sounded outrageous but offered samples for personal testing. One guy had roses that had been plagued with aphids for over six years. He said that there was not a single spot on these roses bigger than the size of a dime NOT covered in aphids. He applied a 1 inch layer in the watering basin. In less than two months, all aphids were gone. He has now applied worm castings to all of his roses. He now has not a single aphid anywhere.
Nursery managers have asked their clients to apply worm castings and observe the possible pest repellency effects. The number of people who have seen success in their own tests exceeds 1,000. I have asked how many of their clients have complained of no positive results. Not one complaint for lack of results has been made to date .
