    They certainly do aid and speed  up the process by consuming larger pieces of organic matter and converting it into humus.

    Yes, earthworms can help the process by mixing materials through their movement and also by digesting larger particles.  However, earthworms are not likely to live in “hot” or actively composting piles due to high heat.  If you are using the slower, “cool” method of compost, your pile will be a haven for earthworms.  Another type of worm, known as red wigglers, are also sometimes used for composting in a method called vermicomposting.  Learn more about vermicomposting with red wigglers at the links provided.
