Compost Bin Micro-climate

We keep two compost bins with one receiving new vegetable offerings each day while the other one that has reached capacity can continue to finish composting.  That second bin that is no longer getting spun on a regular basis provides a warm, safe environment for tiny frogs.  We were surprised to find that the bin still has a few mature black soldier fly larvae that are almost ready for the flies to emerge.  The photo below shows the decaying leaf matter, a few sprouts, larvae, and three little frogs.
