In the warm weather, I see bugs in my compost too. Wolf spiders scare the snot out of me! And those big ugly white grubs freak me out! The worms are cool though. As for white flies, I don't remember seeing any of those, but I know insects are normal in my compost piles.


RE: WHite bugs in compost :)

It would help to know where you are , the size of the "bugs" and any other characteristics you might think of.
