Most dung beetles are small and nocturnal, but the larger Common Dor Beetles (Geotrupes spp.) and the Minotaur Beetle (Typhaeus typhoeus) are more easily seen.

Dung beetles are important because they get rid of a lot of dung, breaking it down and incorporating it into the soil, so helping in the recycling of nutrients. This also makes the world a less smelly place to live in and reduces the numbers of other insects like flies which would otherwise breed in it.

In the UK dung beetles utilise the dung of cows, horses, rabbits, deer and sheep, eg. a cow produces about 7 tons of dung per year. The Common Dor Beetle, Geotrupes stercorarius, is known as a 'tunneller', usually found in cow dung; they make tunnels below the dung. They are good at flight and a single beetle flies around until it finds a fresh cow pad. Once a pair have got together they dig a tunnel beneath the pad and drag as much dung as they can down into it. The females normally stay in the burrow, using their long broad legs to build numerous galleries in the soil. Dung is deposited in each gallery and an egg is laid in the dung, providing the emerging grub with nourishment. The males provide the dung pellets for the female to bury. Often they have a colony of mites living on them hence the name Lousy Watchman.

The most common but least seen dung beetles in Britain are in the genus Aphodius, which contains over 1,000 species world-wide, with about 50 species here in the UK. All species of Aphodius are 'dwellers', that is they spend as much of their lives as possible digging around inside some sort of dung. They lay the eggs straight into it and the larvae eat their way through it.

Dung is mostly composed of half digested grass and a smelly liquid portion, and this is what the adults feed on, some of them have specialised mouth parts designed to let them suck out this nutritious soup, it is full of micro-organisms which the beetles can digest.

Dung beetles are often referred to as 'Scarabs' hence the classification Scaraboidea, and in ancient Egypt the scarab or dung beetle was their most important religious symbol.

Nice to see that you can use a search engine.

 

Perhaps one day you'll be able to string two (or maybe even three) cohesive sentences of your own that have some sort of positivity about them.....

 

.....in the meantime - get behind the club, team AND manager.

Probably quite correct.

Mind you, I never realised that his mother provided those sort of services to door-to-door salesmen. <img src="/images/graemlins/chloe.gif" alt="" />

Despite you lot being in denial I'm sure you lot are all more than aware of my exceptional ability to string sentences together. Yes it is true I am indeed a wealth of information.

Infact I would go as far as to say that any help and advice you lot need with your lives, you know where to come now, anything you need to know…

I'll get this little band of anoraks and misfits back on track…

Just one thing, I would prefer it if you refer to me in future as Mister Carlos Sir<img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Dear Mister Carlos Sir,

You have indeed shown a depth of knowledge, especially of dung beatles, that is unsurpassed on this forum. It is also true that you have presented many of your arguements in a very articulate and expressive manner.That's what a forum is all about, after all. What I'd like to know is, ARE you for real or are you just on a wind-up like that other 'anonymous' chappy we had a short while ago? Just curious...

 

Lots of love,

 

Anorak.

J(@)TF, thanks for your appreciation of my knowledge of the subject of dung beetles, it is a subject that is very close to my heart, and one that has provided many an emotional moment or two over the years, but enough of that.

In response to your question, yes I am very much for real, I offer the alternative views of fleet supporters, some of which have not in the past been discussed on these forums but warrant discussion. They may appear controversial and dare I say in some cases insane but should be mentioned. Certain people may find them irrelevant as they feel the topic may or may not apply to them, in which case is it the topic or the person who objects to them who is irrelevant? Who knows? Confused? good.

I would like to distance myself from the spiteful rumours that have been spreading like wild fire on these forums that I am the anonymous poster who as plagued these forums in bygone months. Hope this clears up any misunderstandings that you may have about me.

As a footnote, I will be posting a much anticipated 'Carlos Corner' topic regularly, examining and discussing various subjects concerning life at GNFC. No questions about these in advance please. I will be observing many aspects surrounding the club with my team of experts and will report my findings back to you. In time you will all be extremely grateful of my masterful existence.

 

Yours in Support,

 

King Carlos

Carlos my man,

 

I think that we will disagree on the current state of the team and the manager, but you did strike a chord with your comments on the other thread about the club does not seem to do enough in the area, to drum up support.

 

At least now with a ST person on the board, we might just hear of some new initiatives, and what the short term and long term goals of the club are.

 

The club is placed in a rapidly growing area of North West Kent, and if we do want to make the step up, now is an ideal time to try and achieve it.

Wayne, I may as well admit what you probably already were aware of…

The comments regarding Andy and the management were somewhat exaggerated in order to generate some controversy and discussion on this forum. I wanted to try and gauge a generate census of opinion to what people feeling were towards the current situation and realised that the approach which I took, would provide me with a wealth of responses and opinions very quickly. Unfortunately a large amount of people on these forums seem content with the situation at present and are reasonably confident that if left unchanged the club can battle successful against relegation. I was simply trying to draw people (somewhat unsuccessfully) into a discussion about peoples longer term ambitions for the club.

 

In my opinion, the importance of reaching out to the local community cannot be underestimated, as it is from there where future attendance increases will come. This will probably be a question which I may reget asking, but has anyone involved with the club actually attempted to lease with potential GNFC supporters who have not as yet shown an interest in attending fleet matches? There are thousands of football supporters in Gravesham, and I'm not for one minute naive enough to think that they are going to flock to Stonebridge Road immediately, what I am saying though is a different approach should be adopted for different target groups to prove successful.

Carlos,

 

I applaud your efforts ( even if I still disagree with the personal pops at Andy ) to bring some life to this usually lifeless forum, and your original postings regarding 30 - 40 vocal protestors were see-through enough for most sensible people to see that they were an exagerated viewpoint and a wind up.

 

We are currently in a time when the population in the area is rapidly increasing, interest in footie is at an all time high and premiership tickets if you can get hold of them, are slowly but surely pricing themselves out of the pockets of many. Especially the teenagers and blokes wanting to take their kids to a game.

This is creating a market that is crying out for a decent local team to step in and clean up. We can be that team.

 

The second point of your comments were alluding to this , and suggesting that we as a club aren't doing enough to make sure that we will cash in on this, and create that brighter future for ourselves.

From where I stand ,I can not comment as I don't know what the long term goals are , or what steps we are taking to get there. I was hoping that when the new CEO came on board we might have more regular communication on here, and that would enthuse us and all the local community, but so far nothing........

I think the hope is that the ST representatives give us regular feedback from the board, so that open and honest debates can then be aired on the forum, and suggestions on how we can help can be made.

 

Despite what some others may think, your postings give the impression of someone who does think about the club, and is passionate about how it develops.

 

Do you have any suggestions how we can get more people thru' the turnstiles ? What sort of age group / sectors we shouldtarget etc ?

 

 

Up the Fleet, as we set sail for the first 3 points of the season on Saturday...

Carlos, all of a sudden you don't seem such a bad chap.

 

I for one think all half-decent suggestions as to how the club can move forward in terms of both on & off field activities should be given a genuine chance of being brought into fruition.

 

As for Wobbly's last question - I think others have given the same answer that I will - EVERY school in the whole borough should be targeted - give each school say 20/30 tickets that admit the child free when accompanied by an adult - hey presto, hopefully some extra £10's through the turnstiles plus any other extras. On top of that, these people might actually return for the next home game after.....

 

.....another sector we need to pursue is the asian community. How many of this sector come to the games? They can't all surely 'support' Man Utd!

Some interesting and valid comments King Carlos - a subject close to my heart, as I suspect Wobbly Wayne etc. As a fan, this is what I have noticed over the summer months, which suggests the Club has "tried hard" this summer to attract new supporters:

 

a) The Supporters Trust meeting was widely advertised in the local

press, especially the Reporter, with flyers and posters being

distributed around the town and local shops etc.

B) Fleet Stalls at the Regatta and Carnival promoting the Club.

c) The new Chief Executive seems to be a bit of a "spin doctor" with

the local media, with several articles about the Club in the local

press. There have also been adverts in the local papers advertising

"the club as your local team - 5 minutes from Bluewater" - or

something along those lines! Give him time and see what other

idea's he comes up with - his only been in the job a short while.

d) 10,000 season ticket application forms distributed to all 60

pubs in G&N, Gravesend train station and shops etc. The intention

here was simply to promote the Club a bit more - it was never

intended to sell 10,000 tickets!

e) Fixture posters circulated to those pubs that agreed to display

them. Out of 60 odd pubs, only 14 odd bothered to reply - which

reflects the "uphill struggle" the Club faces with promoting

itself in the local community.

 

These and other initiatives need to be repeated summer after summer to see any real benefits.

 

The question remains, what else could the Club be doing to promote itself and attracting new supporters? Answers on a postcard!

And the asian community are definetly "into" football,you only have to look at the success of the guru nanak teams.

SD is right,schools need to be targeted aswell,they'll provide new fans that could be fans for life..and kids tend to be noisier,helping the players,and they'll want burgers etc,they're dads will want beer etc.

Actually,forget that,target everyone!Build a 60000 capacity stadium and win the premiership <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
