Ants may occasionally set up a colony within a compost bin. They do not harm the composting process and may in fact help by creating tunnels in the soil. These tunnels are important in helping air to circulate within the compost bin.

Ants can sometimes be found in compost bins that have become too dry, so you should check that your compost bin is moist. Click here to find out how to check the moisture level of your compost.
