Mice in compost
My compost bin is in my backyard, 4 x 4, made of cedar wood slats. I turned it a couple of days ago and saw a mouse run out. As I continued to turn it, I noticed little pink baby mice. I looked on the web and read that it was important to kill them, so I killed the 3 babies that I could find and continued turning. Feeling traumatized by the killing of the baby mice, it did not occur to me to remove them from the bin. I am concerned that this compost is no longer safe to use in my vegetable garden because of the dead babies.
My question for you is: Should I remove all of the compost and dispose of it and start over?
