help - flies (bad) and worms (good) in compost bin
I have a swarm of whitish gnats in my compost bin and their numbers have been increasing over the past few weeks. There was a discussion here about whitefly in compost a few weeks back and it sounds as if I have what a poster described as fungus gnats (like fruit flies but lighter in color).
I also have a thriving population of worms that do a great job of chewing through my compost. My question is whether a soap spray would hurt the worms - what do you think?
