I'm planning to make a compost bin hopefully soon. For right now I've been saving my scraps in a bucket. I've noticed that it is getting full of bugs! There are wasps, flies, gnats and who knows what else swarming around it. Is that going to have an effect on the compost, or should I just throw the whole mess out and start once I have an actual bin? I did have a lid on the bucket but it didn't fit very well. I know that a lot of people just have compost piles out in the open, as I am still in town that is not an option for me. I'm mostly wanting the compost for the new garden that I'll be putting in for next year.
