I compost with rabbit droppings (which I don't actually need to compost but as it comes with a whole slew of other things like hay & newspaper I do it anyway). The poop doesn't smell but the urine really does. And for some reason its REALLY bad at my new house. Perhaps the air flow was better at my previous house because it use to take a few days to calm the smell down, and now its a lot longer then that. I'm wondering if there's any tricks out there to keep the smell down to a minimum? Only the urine smell - something that's safe for the pile. I put dirt on it and that helps (it helps to break it down faster, too) & I'm thinking about putting plastic bags over it tonight, too. Is baking soda safe & effective? I was excited a couple of weeks ago as I saw a black soldier fly crawl into it, but I've seen no maggots since. I'm worried that I'm going to get my neighbors fed up with me.
Help!? (PS the smell is not from a stagnant pile - if anything its hard to keep a stand alone pile wet enough here in phoenix for it to turn stagnant). Thanks!
