Hello thurrmac,
Went out today to turn the compost piles and the new one is loaded with huge earthworms----that is a good thing. However, upon further turning, I found a nest of termites--------not a good thing. The pile does have wood shavings in it from the local horse stables, a bit of woody stalks from some of the plants I've removed from the garden and a few small oak tree twigs from the many bags of leaves I've added.

Later today I'll head back out and remove as many worms and place them in the other piles and set up my seafood boiling pot (80 qt.) to see if that get rid of them. I'm not happy with termites anywhere near my house.

If anyone has a better solution that will not kill off all the beneficial critters, kindly respond. I do have some pesticide for termite treatment, but really don't want to use that in my pile.
