I have a quart or so of this liquid fish based nitrogen fertilizer that smells bad and decided I wont' be using it indoors.   I want to use it up.. regret the purchase.

I have quite a bit of carbon in a compost bin now.. the leaves and grass didn't even break down over the last 6 months ( fall through winter).  Can I dulute this stuff in some water and pour it over the carbon in the bin to help break it down?

Howdy,
I have used fish emulsion liquid on garden and compost pile. Compost pile attracted my dog, which doesn't really happen with house scraps. I have heard of wild critters being attracted to it, bears, raccoons, foxes.  If it was me, I would dilute it heavily. I am doing the same thing, using nitrogeon to break down grass in compost pile.
