Answer: 
Odor and rodent problems are usually a function of what you put into the bin.
Only kitchen waste that has no meat, bones, cheese, butter, and no animal wastes. Very wet compost will smell: add some dry leaves or grass clippings to dry it out. To dry? Add a little water.
Rodents will not bother compost that is well mixed and has no animal products in it.
It also helps to turn it, we keep a small

It also helps to turn it, we keep a small pitchfork next to the bin.
We also compost shredded paper plates and napkins although they take longer to breakdown.

Answer: 
So far there is no odor from the bin. I live near a wooded area and there has not been any problems with the wildlife to date. I did put a small lock on the side door just to be safe.

Answer: 
There have been no reports of rodents in this compost bin. However, it is conceivable that one could tunnel underneath and there is no floor. Compost may develop and earthy odor but it is not strong and not unpleasant. In a garden setting odor is not usually noticable.

Answer: 
If composting is done, no there is no odor. Please research online the correct green vs brown ratio. I did put hardware cloth (wire mesh) under neath the barrel just in case because my backyard backs up to a field with many gophers. But again, if you compost correctly, it should not attract rodents or animals. Do not use animal by products and you should be fine. No Milk, meat, bones, etc..

Answer: 
The ThermoQuick compost bins have had no complaints of rodents, however it is conceivable that they could tunnel in from the bottom. Compost has a not unpleasant earthy odor but it usually isn't noticeable from its garden position.

Thermoquick 110 gal. Composter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Size, but Poor Design I had one of these for four years and left it after I moved and will not buy another one. It has a large capacity, so is good for yard waste. The problem is that when you assemble it you slide the sides together at the corners to lock it into place. If the composter is on uneven ground the corners will pop out of place quickly. If you put in grass clippings or other heavy types of waste and need to turn it, a corner will eventually fail. I was still able to use it with 3 corners connected and one partially, but it became a pain to try to keep the fourth corner connected so all the waste didn't come out and the thing just fall apart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so hot This was difficult to put together and has started to fall apart after two years. It is popping apart at the corners due to the weight of the compost. I'm going to have to empty all of the compost in order to try to repair it. Also, once loaded, it's difficult to turn to the compost due to the tapered shape of the bin. At $50 it'd be an OK buy, but it's certainly not worth twice that amount.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed The material is flimsy and flops around when you try to put it together. The instructions are not written in English, but are translated from another language, so they don't make sense. When I tried to install the clips, one of them broke and the lid cracked. On the plus side, customer service is very responsive, although she doesn't speak English well. They sent new clips and a new lid, but I still cannot figure out how to use the clips. I would have returned it, but I had already filled it with the contents of the older composter and I had nowhere to put the stuff. Don't buy this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Good Very difficult to assemble, either alone or with a buddy; even anchored, blew away and apart in wind storm; when trying to put back together - impossible, and plastic cracked. I tried to make it work, but line of least resistance is to return it, then try to pick up all compost scattered by animals which found it very easy to invade. Lose/lose/lost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Initially great - but then fails Looks good and easy to put together - BUT, once it's actually in use - and over half way full it comes apart when you attempt to turn it. I also have a Soilserver and a Bio Stack - they are far better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sent it back I sent it back. We put it together and found that the cover wouldn't close and the base pieces were very flimsy. I knew in a strong wind they would separate. The whole thing was too flimsy. I'm going back to the wooden structure we've had before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I had been scouring the classifieds for a used compost bin to no avail. Why are squares of plastic so stinking expensive?!?! After reading the reviews I was hesitant to order the Termoquick as I have two much more expensive compost bins. Admittedly the design is not the greatest for assembly but obviously works for packaging and shipping. Install can be a challenge but once you figure out one side the next three go pretty quickly. I set up the compost bin by myself. It helped to be on a stable surface like concrete rather than dirt or lawn. I love the large capacity. I expect that it will perform like a compost bin should. I'm an avid home composter. For the price, this is a good option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality - Easy Assembly I bought this composter based on the pictures provided on the Home Depot website. It looked sturdy and durable, thus it was appealing to me. This unit came in five main parts. Four identical sides and the top lid. Little parts like lock-pieces or soil-anchor-plates were included, too, of course. The identical side walls make the composter easy to assemble, meaning you don't have to think twice where to put which part. After assembling and locking the sides you just click and lock the lid and your composter is ready to go. I was caught by surprise though that this composter does not have a base plate. I had composters like that before and all of them provided a base which kept the compost from direct contact with the soil and prevented critters from possibly digging their way into the compost. That's the only reason why I gave 4/5 stars. The design feature of creating all sidewalls identically is very smart, though leaving you with a redundancy: "Who needs a bottom access lid on every side of a composter?". Saying that, it is not a downside, because the lids are sturdy enough to hold the dirt, that's why I call it a feature, not a flaw. This composter is a german product made out of recycled plastic. In my opinion this origin still resembles good quality products - like "made in the U.S.A.".
