What is the best way to ward off small flies from a compost container?


The containers where we throw kitchen waste for composting always attract flies. Is there a way to keep them away without damaging the composting process?

    Thanks for answering the question. I live in an apartment and do not have the scope of getting straw, wood chips or peanut hulls. I have only one container which is kept on the balcony behind. Can I add newspaper shreds to the pile?

    I remember reading somewhere that the ink used in newspaper printing can be harmful to the compost. I don't know whether it is correct...
