In the summer I can't remember exactly when, I found a rather ill looking Dor beetle and picked it up to see what was wrong. I found it was covered in mite on it's underside, so I took a toothbrush(an old one!) and brushed away the mite and took it down the field to some cow dung, it crawled away and I hope it survived. I read later that Dor beetles are prone to mite.

I too felt how strong it's legs were when I was trying to hold the beetle still.
