Q.Compost Not Heating Up

kathycakes added on March 27, 2011 | Answered

I have a very large compost “box” that I have fed worms all last year. I added a lot of leaves, pine straw and lots and lots of food scraps for the worms. The compost however has never heated up enough to decompose the “brown” stuff. I recently purchased a “compost helper” that is supposed to heat things up, but I’m afraid it will kill the worms. Suggestions please!?!
