Is the brugmansia poisonous to hummingbirds and bees? Will the rotting leaves harm earthworms?

I can't find any scientific data related to Brugmansia having a negative impact on hummingbirds or bees. There is solid data supporting the negative effects of this plant family on humans and livestock.
Earthworms do very well in decaying organic matter such as rotting leaves.
