A manual for looking after dung beetles by reducing pesticides, using non-chemical controls and careful chemical control but never careless chemical control. The Walk Through Horn Fly Trap built from University of Missouri plans and the Nzi Trap built from Steve Mihok's well tested design were completed. Both were demonstrated in the project and discussed in this document. Several useful references to scientific journal articles are included.
