My family has composted for many years. In below freezing temperatures, compost accumulates in the bin as the rate of degradation declines. After the temperature increases in Spring, the processing rate increases fast enough to eliminate the backlog. For household compost, the need to actively manage may be minimal.
Every spring my compost is colonized by an assortment of insects, mostly flies, beetles and isopods. I have a healthy colony of black soldier flies that is inactive during winter but becomes active in spring. They colonized without input from us.
Black soldier flies are not nuisances, the larvae are large and they process a lot of plant material. The photo at left is the compost last September, teeming with soldier fly larvae. When temperatures are below freezing nothing stirs. Other than putting in plant material and removing compost, my system is self regulating and not an incubator for pests.
