They recycle waste, turning it into a valuable fertilizer for flowers, vegetables, berries, etc. However, the compost pit at the dacha is needed not only for the “preparation” of fertilizers: various insect pests settle in this garden building, which, when spreading compost on the plot, die together with their larvae.
