Ants in compost bin ready to fly

This year we had two of the compost bins at our Stokes Wood Allotment Composting Demonstration site infested with ants and decided to let them carry on with their lives as we have plenty of other bins in use. In one of the bins they have now reached the stage where flying ants have appeared on the surface. What is interesting from the composting perspective is how fine they have made the compost in their nest.

If you have taken any interesting photos of composting techniques, equipment or use that you woud like to see published in a new book on composting please contact me at carryoncomposting1@gmail.com
