Bees in Compost Bin

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 13:53

A couple of weeks ago I turned over the compost in my bin, and after heard what I thought was water running. After I went in doors and put in my hearing aids I realized that this was actually Bees. Many of which were appearing out of the top of the Bin. This morning I had another look and they are still there. I am not intending to empty the bin until possibly next spring. So will have plenty of bees to do there thing in the garden. They appear to be small bumble bees and by the sound loads of them. I dont want to harm the bees but need he compost. Any Idea's.

Talkback: Mulching with compost

If I bought a load of spent Mushroom compost from a Mushroom grower, would I have to compost the stuff before digging it in to my Borders. I have over the years dug in a substantial amount of Peat free compost but the soil drys out very quickly and resembles Prairie dust.
