Probably cheaper in the supermarket.
At a guess, it's not soil but excrement and what you've got inside it, producing that excrement, are the larvae of lily beetles:

Be careful with Provado. Its quite toxic and I found it doesn't work that well on Lily Beetles or Vine weevils
Lily beetles disguise themselves as bird poop, to avoid being eaten, which could account for the black soil you're seeing.
