The Building Beetle Highways activity is now underway following its debut event at Dowerin Field Day.

We are currently calling for landholders who are interested to see if they have dung beetles on their properties and, if so, what types.  We then want to map and gap the species, comparing and contrasting what we should have with what we do have. On-farm nurseries will be established to breed populations of suitable species for release into areas where there are gaps.

We will supply equipment and training to participating farms. They will then be asked to set traps four times a year in spring, summer, autumn and winter, sending the beetles caught back to us to be identified.

If you are interested in participating, please email Felicity at fgilbert@wheatbeltnrm.org.au.  We’d love to have you on board.
