It does not have to be composted and can be placed directly on plants, trees, shrubs etc.
Alpaca Beans are great for those delicate plants. Good soil health will reduce disease and pest problems. Organic gardeners constantly work to improve the health of their soil. Alpacas do a great job for us. They are nature’s composters. Alpacas have a marvelously efficient digestive system. They do not give any seeds the opportunity to germinate. Alpaca manure is lower in organic matter content than the manure from most other livestock such as cows, horses, goats and sheep, but it still has enough to improve soil texture and water holding capacity. Alpaca dung does not have to be "aged or cured", it does not "burn" the plants it comes in contact with, and can be applied rather carelessly without fussing. That means no composting necessary. You could mulch Alpaca manure to your garden area anytime between fall and shortly before planting to have great soil. You could even just put the poop on top of the soil and flower beds and the rain will break down the manure and it will naturally mix into the soil. Continuous feeding your plants.
I found some more specific stats on the makeup of alpaca manure for all who are interested. The nitrogen and potassium content is comparatively high which indicates good fertilizer value. Phosphorus is relatively low, as are most livestock manure. The calcium and Magnesium content is about average. Alpaca manure is said to be one of the richest organic fertilizers available and it does not have to be composted before putting on your plants.
For use on seedlings, an Alpaca Tea can be easily made. Mix 1/3 cup alpaca pellets with 2/3 cup of water and let sit from 3 hours to overnight. Within 24 hours of the first application you will see a noticeable change in the seedlings.
I have heard that Alpaca beans appears to be an effective deer repellent also! Deer don't like the smell. However to humans it is almost odorless.
Once you've tried this amazing fertilizer, you will be coming back for more. We are selling 5 gal buckets for $3.50 - if you bring the bucket. $7 without a bucket. Or better yet, bring 2 buckets and leave one and take the other home full for free. Or even better yet, bring 4 buckets and leave two and take the other two home full for free. Composting has begun but will not be available for a while.
