Worm casting- insect control

I have reports from US that vermicast reduces phylloxerated vines.  There 
is an argument that using such organic composts increases plant health 
and natural defences.   There is anecdotal evidence of reduction of some 
other pest damage, but I think there's not much published work.

  I have heard that addition of worm castings can aid in control of certain 
  insect pests.  Do you know of anyone who might know about this?
