I delight in my interactions with different organisms and I encourage it in various ways. However…I have a little food waste bin that I use in the house as shown which I take every few days to my household compost heap at the bottom of the garden. The system works well and I am sure the fox likes it on his/her occasional visits. The amount of life down there means that it never gets full. We are in the height of summer here in Blighty so my localfood web is much more noticeable and I love being a part of that, but just this morning there were maggots in my little bin. I was initially a little disgusted by it and then I got to thinking that they were in the right place breaking stuff down. I am still rather ambivalent about it.
Fruit fly maggots. fine on the compost heap not fine in the kitchen is my motto there, just empty the bin more often in this warm weather or get a lid for it to stop them getting in in the first place.
I have some maggots and a few other crawly things making a home in my compost pile outside. I have a chicken that flies over the fence every day and heads straight there, scratching around eating those critters.
I've thought of Radagast to be on the right track living close to nature
