Hi all, first time poster and compost enthusiast.
I hope someone can help/put my mind at ease!
I have a large black plastic "blackwall" type composter that I have been filling with bokashied kitchen waste and garden bits and pieces for a couple of years now with pretty good results.
Last time I aeriated the compost a baby mouse was bought to the surface suggesting the presence of a nest and today when I went to put in some teabags I was comfronted by the most startled mouse on top of the compost who quickly scurried back inside.
I was wondering if this is a sign that all is well in my bin or, perhaps, the opposite.
I have no problems with mice in the house and am happy to share my compost with them.
Should I desist from aeriating?
I only do it twice a year anyway.
Any advice would be appreciated.
