my compost has not got many worms in it anymore could it be the ants are eating them.

I'm in Qld and it's been hot and dry. I water the compost to keep it moist and I turn it over as well.

General Advice • Garden Jobs

Yes, it's a possibility if they are in large numbers and the right species.

Add a few shovelfuls of your garden soil into the compost, which will introduce more earthworms/eggs and other micro-organisms, or buy compost worms from Bunnings/nurseries etc. 

Keeping your compost damp and well-aerated, as you're doing, is good too, as ants prefer drier conditions.
