BUZZ-OFF Fertilizer 1-2-3 Easy Steps!




Introduction: BUZZ-OFF Fertilizer 1-2-3 Easy Steps!

My wife keeps BUGGING me about the need to recycle. 

I do think I deserve extra points because this simple fertilizer is all natural, 100% organic, biodegradable and I did NOT touch her food processor to make it.

No insects were harmed or killed for this instructable. They all died from the natural causes or the occasional, unfortunate collision with my fly swatter.  (Bugs are kind of dumb that way)

The eggshells were recycled from breakfast. (hmmm. maybe this should be called CLUCK-OFF Fertilizer?) 

Don't worry!  I'll wash out the baggie so the wife can  RECYCLE it for another purpose.  A little insect protein never hurt anyone, right?  


Step 1: 

Gather your bugs. No dead wasp, moth, fly, centipede or beetle is off-limits!

Step 2:

Place your dead bugs in a ziplock baggy and use your hammer to pulverize them. Hint:  If the bugs aren't dry,  put them in a pie plate and dry them in the oven. 200 degrees for 10 minutes will do the trick. 

DISCLAIMER:  "No Honey! I did not use your pie plate to dry bugs!!!! Pinkie-SWEAR!!!!" (ha ha ha! That should convince her!)

Step 3:

Mulch in your BUZZ-OFF (aka CLUCK-OFF) Fertilizer into the soil of your favorite plant and know you did the right recycling thing.

    I assume the egg shells get pulverized with the dried bugs? That's what the picture looks like.

    Very nice instructable, Honey.

    Fibber! You did too use my pie plate! I'm glad you don't know how to use my Food Processor, or you WOULD have used it as well!

    Good Luck and please stay out of my kitchen.

    (((hugs))) and smoochies from The Wife. ;-)
