Three dung beetle packages are available. The approximate number of beetles in a colony depends on the beetle size. Small beetles – 500 (binodis, taurus), medium sized – 400 (bison, alexis), large – 250 (hispanus, spiniger)
We have three packages:
- Whole Farm Package. $6,000 + GST ($1,500/colony).
4 species in 4 colonies. 4 species will provide coverage for up to two thirds of the year.
- Multiple Whole Farm Package. $5,000 + GST ($1,250/colony).
4 species in 8+ colonies. We will call you back about your requirements.
- Single Species Package. $2,000 + GST.
* We will invoice you a 50% deposit to confirm your order and put you in the priority waiting list. Beetles are dispatched in summer.
For the small block owners we recommend that if possible organising neighbouring land owners and collectively buying one of the packages. Beetles do not respect property boundaries and having a larger area with more stock will increase the chances and speed of establishment. Biologically beetles want to fly the shortest distance possible to the next dung pat. If there is lots of dung near by they will have no reason to leave.
