...also in my experience as a Compost Master (no sniggering at the back there!) when we do Compost Events, 99% of the people who say they get rats sometimes in the compost, keep chickens, so it is largely the chickens that attract them.
Tootles, the fact that you have loads of little wriggly critters in your compost just shows how good you are at making it
I have always been freaked out by spiders but can now cope with them up to medium size and as a child (well till I was about 40) I couldn't cope with wriggly things either, but as a gardener it became tiring to shriek everytime I saw an earthworm
