newbie to compost-wierd worm/grub?

12 years ago

Hi all, we are complete compost newbies! We were gifted with one of those tumbler composters & have been trying to follow just about everything we have been able to read up on about composting. We wanted to 'compare' two different methods of composting while we were learning, so we also dug a good sized hole & burried some kitchen & yard scraps to see which broke down quicker, etc. Well in both we have seen these fat grub like wormy critters-they sorta remind me of a meal worm in shape how their bodies look except that they are very pale in color, white or very pale khaki-ish color. What are these thingies & are they 'good' or 'bad' in the compost?

Thanks very much! :)
