These are Cretan animals so they know what to do If you ensure it is only vegetable waste and no egg shells then that helps too. The compost heaps are in an otherwise open space so there is no convenient cover to ge...

Buy it here and if anything is not right with it, it can then be looked at under warranty Most warranties require the owner to send it back to the manufacturer for testing (within a set number of days).
