Almost every neighborhood has critter problems. There are a lot of reasons why your neighborhood may be one of them, and your house could be one of the houses wild critters never fail to visit. You may not be aware of it but one of the greatest attractants in your yard could be your garbage cans.
Yes, you read that right. Your garbage bins may just be the reason why raccoons, skunks and other nuisance wildlife are always roaming around your property. Trash bins are a great source of food for these wildlife animals, and having yours left unsecured through the night makes it an easy target for them.
Unsecured garbage bins will give you a headache. Most critters move about at night when people are asleep, and they knock down trash bins in search for food. This leaves a massive litter around your house in the mornings and you’ll have no choice but to clean the yard again. Aside from that, critters may decide to make a den in your home. This brings a lot of other problems that can pose serious health risks. You don’t want your house to be infested since with wildlife infestation comes property damage and exposure to certain diseases.
Now, to prevent all these from happening all you have to do is secure your trash bins. This will not eliminate all possible critter infestations in the future, but it will significantly lower the chances. After all, when wildlife animals find zero opportunities for easy food in your yard, they will move on to another location that offers easier access to their food. Make sure the lids of your garbage bins are tightly secured– you can even use locks or a bungee cord to make sure they don’t get opened even after being toppled over. Some people place heavy bricks or stones above the lids of their bins,
