Check out these amazing little roller dung beetles. Since ceasing synthetic pyrethroid use on our cattle for buffalo fly and lice our dung beetle population is thriving. Dung beetles bury cattle dung (up to 250 times their own mass in one night). By doing so they eliminate breeding grounds for buffalo and bush flies and return nutrients such as phosphate and nitrogen to the soil. The tunnels they create in the ground help aerate the soil improving water penetration. #grazingnaturally thanks @Rob Young. ... See MoreSee Less
