We've spotted dung beetles on our 8 acres south of Kaufman. Very brightly colored, pretty bugs. I didn't realize they were dung beetles until I saw one in action, moving one of the dogs' messes to a more convenient location.
Just to be sure I understand: we *want* these guys around, right? I can't see them doing any harm, unless there's a problem in a larval stage or something. I like the idea of not scooping the poop myself.
BTW, we've only been on this land since last fall. We haven't done anything, organic or otherwise, besides worming the four horses (with the traditional stuff, unfortunately). We haven't even mowed the pasture, so there are mesquite saplings all over the place... but that's a subject for another posting.
