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
My tribe has a larger 'wandering room' upstairs where we have multiple dung beetles and snails. They tend to naturally group up in the middle of the room so they're easy to manage. Just watch out, they can escape through an open door or glitch through the ceiling to the level below. You also can't pick them up when you have a shoulder pet on.
The Dung Beetle is a great creature to have. Will make Fertilizer and Oil when any kind of Feces is in its inventory. Make sure you have a phiomia as these guys are like best friends. Boost weight only to hold more feces . Have fun gardenening 😁
Make a circle of Lystros. Put beetle(s) inside circle. Pet Lystros, feed beetle(s), store fertilizer in Lystro inventory. 300 per Lystro, no cage/fences needed. (Set follow to lowest and whistle one at a time to arrange Lystros.)
For easy fert and oil, get loads of medium poop, set your ding beetle to neutral, only have poop in your inventory, disclaim the beetle then let it kill you, it should gather all the poop in your inventory with no weight restrictions. You can do this to slot cap it so no need to refill it every hour or so and no needed cages. Best way to farm and most time efficient. Can say it works as I use it all the time. Never needed to go oil farming with 7 of these. O P G O D
Feed it small feces! The dung beetle will produce fertilizer no matter the size of the feces you put inside his inventory! Using small feces weighs about .3LBs meaning you can stock his inventory extremely well and get tons of fert back.
