I've never had rats in any of my 6 compost bins. However, rats love decking, and my neighbours had a family under their's! Apparently the rise in decking has been far more attractive to rats than compost heaps!

With regards as to what goes in - well everything!; from the obvious garden waste (shredded if need be) to the dirt collected in the hoover. Even breakfast cereal boxes go in with any shredded confidential waste - it just has to be left long enough (9 months for me) and kept damp.
