The fauna was enumerated by wet sieving methods. The results showed that The abundance of macro fauna, meso fauna, and micro fauna were changed over time during the composting process of EFB. Macro fauna was preferred and dominated to growth and decomposed EFB at the beginning of composting periods followed by meso fauna at the middle time, and micro fauna at the end of composting. The macro fauna abundance were dominated by beetles, caterpillars, diploda, coleoptera, and thysanoptera, while meso fauna were dominated by collembola and acarina, and microfauna were dominated by naked amoeba, flagellates, and cilliates
