Rodents in compost

I read a thread somewhere on the messege board regarding the presence of Rats in compost heaps or bins, I use 4 dalek type bins throughout the year and usually around winter the rodents appear,it’s warm in those bins, but I find by turning the contents and generally banging on the bins often tends to disturb them without the need to kill them, after all their just looking for somewhere warm to nest,Iv never really had a big problem and believe in gardening side by side with nature, just my thoughts on the matter.
