For Mobile Players: There are multiple tips suggesting to put the beetle in a cage; don't. The little bugger has gotten out of mine several times and needed to be 'recalled'. Resorted to building a stone window frame box around him. Still gives access from any side, and he stays put.
Get yourselves a Phiomia as well! Feed it stimberries and you'll have plenty of medium feces to throw in the dung beetle. Fill it up, and come back and watch more fertilizer than you can imagine. I'll never use compost bins again!
Turns human and dino poop into oil and fertilizer. Make sure the dung beetle is on wander and has plenty of poop, it takes about 15 min per cycle.
1 Human poop becomes 1 fertilizer and 2 oil
2 Small poops become 1 fertilizer and 2 oil
1 Medium poop becomes 2 fertilizer and 4 oil
1 Large poop becomes 3 fertilizer and 6 oil
1 massive poop becomes 16 Fertilizer and 14 oil.
Every cycle can do one "transaction" for each type of poop for a maximum of 7 fertilizer and 14 oil without massive poop or 23 fertilizer and 28 oil with a massive poop.
These bad bois are COMPOST MAKING MACHINES. They are a far better substitute for compost bins. Just keep upgrading weight and you’re good. You’ll eventually have a limitless supply of compost for your everyday farming needs
