Decomposers &Scavengers

Cockroaches, flies and wasps eat dead animals. They are called scavengers. Scavengers help break down organic material into smaller pieces. The decomposers worms, fungi and bacteria then eat the small organic matters, breaking them down into chemical parts. Nitrogen, carbon and other nutrients can then be used again by plants and animals. Without decomposers and scavenegers the world would be filled with dead plants and animals.
