Reclaim Your Space From Bugs, Critters and Odor!
STRONG AND DURABLE
Do not use bags that can tear easily. This attracts pests who spread trash around and flies who leave eggs that turn into maggots. Tie tightly and double-bag if you feel the material is too flimsy.
Odors draw infestations. If your bin is dirty, spray it out with a hose and then spray with a concoction of water and white vinegar. Get the inside, outside, rim, lid and wheels and let sit for 15 minutes before wiping or spraying down. Kitty litter dries up liquids and baking soda absorbs smells so feel free to pour a cup or two onto the bottom of your garbage can.
Always keep that garbage can lid closed tightly. The smallest opening will let in flies who breed maggots. If your lid is loose or you have a raccoon problem, use bungee cords to secure it to the can itself.
ODOR FREE – PART II
For your indoor trash cans, eliminate odors by sprinkling vanilla extract or essential oils on cotton balls and leaving them at the bottom of your bin overnight. Peppermint, lemon, and lavender are great pest repellents.
You can also freeze meat to slow it from spoiling if you have a severe maggot infestation or handle a lot of food waste. When in doubt, bleach – a disinfectant – & baking soda – odor absorber – are your new besties. Larger pests, such as raccoons, hate bright lights so consider placing a motion-activated light on the trash cans.
