Yes it is okay! Just like using worms in your compost, roly polies are perfectly fine to have in your compost pile. Just like others have said before, as the pile heats up they’ll retreat to the edges as they don’t like the heat.

However, with that being said, make sure it’s not an infestation of them. If that’s the case, there might be a problem, but I doubt this is your experience.
