How does targeted worming help our Dung Beetles and why should we care?
💩🐞 Dung beetles are nature’s recyclers, clearing our pastures by feeding and burying animal faeces and destroying parasite eggs. Sadly British dung beetles are in decline. The chemicals we use to treat livestock for parasites can be extremely toxic to them; wormers have had a devastating effect on native populations of these important little creatures. By targeting our wormers and reducing the amount of chemicals on the pasture we help to look after our beetles, benefiting not just our horses but the flora and fauna around us. In return they can save us money and time!
