do maggots help with the composting process?

    Yes maggots do help the biological process of decomposition by inoculating and breaking down organic material in the compost to be further decomposed by fungi and bacteria. The one problem is that they are generally seen as gross. The most common maggots found are from the compost-dwelling soldier fly, and they feed on rotting food sources, and other wet conditions. If you find these maggots in your compost pile, do not worry, just add more dry leaves, grass and other brown material to dry out the compost.
