Hi guys

Were just building our compost toilet.
Has anyone found rats or mice and issue with their humanure compost pile?

Cheers

Rodents can be an issue in any compost pile. Especially if any kitchen scraps are composted.

Our household compost is far from the house, so while we have seen tunnels from time to time, they cause no problems.
