Strategic introduction of key dung beetle species: 1. Reduces reliance of chemical fertilisers: deep-tunnelling dung beetles bring nutrient-rich subsoils to the soil surface and bury nutrient rich dung at 30–50 cm. 2. Reduces soil compaction: dung beetle tunnels deep in the subsoil allow pasture roots to grow into hostile subsoils, improving drought resistance. 3. Provides free clay spreading: in duplex soils, bringing subsoil clay to the surface provides a free clay spreading service which improves water retention and surface soil fertility! 4. Leads to more earthworms: Earthworm numbers increase following dung burial. Further, the earthworms follow the tunnels into the subsoil. 5. Creates more pasture = increased profit: The combined impact of subsoil organic amendment, tunnels for water and plant roots. 6. Helps control intestinal parasites: Dung beetles bury/kill the infective stages of intestinal parasites (worms) and reduce the need for parasiticides. Ask Dr Bernard Doube to advise you on: • appropriate dung beetle species and numbers for your farm • managing the introduction and maintenance of dung beetles on your farm.
