Physical, Chemical, and biological parameters play a key role in compost production. This descriptive study was conducted, by using 9 basins within 25 kgs wastes placed in 3 places and at 3 steps during 3 months, then by taking 407 times of Arthropoda existed in a controlled condition were determined. After transferring the samples to the laboratory, Arthropods were identified by Stereo Microscope. The total number of 534583 samples of larvae, pupae and adult of Arthropoda were collected then estimated. In total Diptera with 373600 samples (69.886), Coleoptera with 157398 (29.443), Hymenoptera with 2050 (0.384), Mesostigmata with 1500 (0.281), Araneida with 18 (0.0033), Isopoda with 12 (0.0022), Dictyoptera with 4 (0.0007), Metastigmata with 1 (0.0001) were identified. Study indicated that at least 8 orders of Arthropoda including: Diptera, Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Mesostigmata, Araneida, Isopoda, Dictyoptera and Metastigmata are active in compost process. Since varieties of Arthropoda existed in compost production makes it very rich and they can be easily multiplied in the process, they can be used in providing foods for domestic animals, birds, and fish.
