Hey Susan! I would love to learn more about how this process aerates. Do you have any good links to articles I could read about to learn more?

Dung beetles aerate soil through lots of digging. They dig burrows as part of their lifecycle into which they deposit pieces of dung. Thus they both aerate the soil and also help with nutrient recycling by taking the dung underground.
