April 12, 2006....This is probably a silly question

***From the old blog

We went to the zoo today, and what a perfect day to be outside! Absolutely gorgeous. What has stuck with me, though, is something that I read in the bathroom. On the inside of the stall door (at a perfect reading height LOL) was a small poster about dung beetles that said something like "dung beetles are so effective at their job that Australia has imported more to help deal with an overabundance of dung". Is the bathroom not the ideal place for this topic??

It got me thinking, though...is there a reason we couldn't use dung beetles in our sewage treatment plants? A natural solution to a natural problem? I'm sure there's probably a good reason not to, but doesn't it just sound like a match made in heaven?

Yes, deep thoughts shared here!
