How do I keep maggots away from my compost?

  1. Move your compost to a larger volume of compost. The heat from a larger compost will kill off larvae.
  2. Dig a hole and bury the contents with the larvae and cover with a foot of soil.
  3. Reduce moisture content so fewer flies are drawn to your compost. Use things like office paper shreds, straw or brown leaves.
