Greener Gardens With Dogs

We love our dogs, but cleaning up their poo is no fun.

Dung Beetles - Natures dog poo solution
How many times have you wished that your dog would do this?

We understand how much effort cleaning up after our dogs can be. We do it, because we like our gardens, and our neighbours. Plus, having a yard full of dog bombs, and a house full of flies is no fun.

But now we know that there’s a better solution.

A completely natural solution, one that’s good for the planet and requires no effort from us.

We’re serious about the no effort. All you need to do is let the solution go in your back yard at the right time and let them do what they evolved to do.

You just need Dung Beetles – Natures dog poo solution.

Why do we do what we do?

Did you know that we put a man on the moon before we put wheels on our suitcases? So, while Armstrong was up there farting in his space suit, we were all down here just carrying around our suitcases. It seems so silly to think about it now, doesn’t it?

We’ve had wheels for thousands of years, and people have been travelling for even longer. But until Mr Bernard Sadow took his wheelie bags to Macy’s in the 1970’s everyone just made do and carried their heavy, un-wheeled suitcases.

We put a man on the moon before we put wheels on a suitcase. The way that we deal with dog poo is kinda the same

The way that we deal with dog poo now is a little bit like carrying our suitcases. It’s the solution that we have, because no-one has offered us a better one.

We wrap the poop in a bag and chuck it in the bin, which is helpful for our shoes, but hurts our planet. It doesn’t seem like a lot when you just think about your dog, but when we know that 39% of Australian households have at least one dog, it becomes a big problem.

It’s estimated that 100 tonnes of dog poo is dropped in Sydney alone every day. Thats a lot of poop, and a lot of plastic that doesn’t need to be in landfill.

Dung Beetles – Natures Poo Solution

Dung beetles bury organic matter (your dog’s poop) deep into the soil, creating a deeper, and better quality top soil in your garden; without the need for commercial fertilisers.

The tunnels that dung beetles dig break up poor quality soil which helps plant roots and water to penetrate deeper into the ground.

This combination of deep root systems and good water penetration means that your garden will be better protected during extreme heat and drought.

The infographic below shows the importance of increasing the biodiversity of our soils. This biodiversity is just as important at home as it is on our agricultural lands.

Nature has provided us with the best solution for dog poo, we just had to put two and two…or beetles and poo… together.
