does anyone have problems with ants being in their compost bin?

we was going to get a compost bin today but we have ants pretty bad in the yard and was wondering if they would go to the compost?

  • I have never had ants in my compost pile. Try Sprinkling powdered Boric Acid in it. Its natural and keeps bugs away. I've heard vinegar works too but might make your compost stink really bad!
