Here's some background information that might be useful to understand what's going on. The bare physics answer to “why is this happening” is: two wires running close together form an unintended capacitor.

But if you are on such a tight budget that you don't have a mixer, my suggestion is not to use lavaliers. Especially wired lavaliers if the cable run is going to be more than 25', unless you're using very expensive cable. ...
