Also, have your friends offered any evidence for their fears?

Are you composting the humanure before using it?

Hi, I am getting feedback from friends; concerning pathogens bieng spread from human to same human or other human thru the use of humanure on edible plants and fruiting trees.
Can anyone ease my mind?

I am having a great experience with my compost, it's a week old and no smell at all. Even my skeptical neighbor is amazed. However... There are over a hundred dairies in my town (Roswell, NM) and the fly problem here is remarkable. Is there an organic way to repel the flies, or to kill them or their eggs? My brother's all vegetation compost has the same problem and it doesn't stink either. Will simply covering it more work?

I dumped a large bag of leaves on it, it helped, thanks.

My local hardware store has no idea where I can find thermometers with 8" and 20" (or thereabouts) sensors. Any suggestions?

I got mine from the local nursery. I only got a 20" thinking I could just put in at an 8" depth to get that temp. Frugal or cheap? Either way, it works.

Shelly is right. You only need a 20" thermometer. Sources are listed in Humanure, second edition, which is on the web. Or just call Reotemp at 800-648-7737.
