“Composting attracts rodents.” – This risk can be cut down by avoiding adding any cooked foods to your compost bin.
“Compost smells bad.” – This can happen if your heap is unbalanced in greens and browns! However, if you empty your kitchen food waste often, the smell won’t linger inside. Add more browns to the mix if it gets smelly and slimy and also give it a stir as a bit of aeration will help.
“Compost attracts flies.” – Flies can be reduced if you ‘bury’ each addition of food waste.
“It is hard work.” – Cold composting is the easiest method as all you have to do is build up compost in a container, but it is a very slow process.
