Dungy Draftees

A faithful reader inspired by a photos of a relative's recent trip to Africa and NDL's post on guerrilla gardening suggested that the Dung Beetle might be an invaluable addition to our plan to deliver seeds into a targeted flowerless no man's land.

After viewing this video, we have no doubt that the little scarabs would be totally perfect for the job - quick, efficient, focused, and apparently lacking a sense of smell, but wonder...who will put the clothespin on their nose and mix up the fertilizer-heavy seedballs for the small commandos to roll to their ultimate destination???

Gardening at its finest - though I am a NIMBY (not in my back yard!) on this subject.
