About Compost Critters

My name is Royce Hale and I designed this web page when I was a graduate student at IslandWood. I wanted to provide an easy-to-use resource to help identify the invertebrates found in the local compost and soil. The collection is not comprehensive and you may find organisms in the soil that are not in "Compost Critters." If that is the case, consult other resources. My favorite online resource for insects is Have fun digging in the dirt.
