Ants in compost – a possible no-no?

Ants in compost – a possible no-no?

I've been preparing compost for a while (have also been unsuccessfully hunting for worms to make it a vermicultural compost pile), and yesterday when turning it, I decided to check on it. While I cannot say anything other than "it's looking gorgeous" (it's a deep, dark color, and it glistened in the sun but wasn't soaked - makes me think I should've taken a picture), I also noticed that there's ants in my compost. It's not a colony, just a ton of fellows going in and out the holes of the bin, and it worried me that I don't know if they'll leave when the compost is ready and there's no more food for them in there, or what. I have never heard anything, positive or negative, regarding ants in plants, and considering that I got that compost pile going to assist the growth of my vegetable pots, it worries me all the more that these ants might hinder it when I move the compost over to the pot. Is it normal to have ants in one's compost pile? If it's not, what should I do? For the sake of information, I move the soil around every two days, and turn the whole pile almost as often.
