The proper disposal of your garbage is critical in preventing pests from being attracted to your property. Outdoor dumpsters are often the best way to prevent them from entering your building, but it is still important to ensure that you take the steps to deter them from your dumpsters. Following these steps can ensure that you can optimize the benefits that are provided by your outdoor dumpster.
Common Pests that Are Attracted to Outdoor Dumpsters
Understanding the pests that may be attracted to your outdoor dumpster can help you to know what to look out for when a problem arises. Outdoor dumpsters may attract cockroaches, rodents, or insects to the property. If these pests are present, they may make their way from your dumpster to your building. Ensuring that you take the steps to protect your building can go a long way toward eliminating problems.
How to Deter Pests
There are several steps that you can take to help deter pests from accessing your outdoor dumpsters. For one thing, you need to be careful about the placement of your dumpster. Try to ensure that it is at least 50 feet away from your building. You will also need to ensure that you regularly clean your dumpster to remove grime and grease from its surface. Care for the area around your dumpster by trimming bushes, trees, and grass around the dumpster. You will also want to ensure that your dumpster remains in good condition by regularly examining it for rust, cracks, and holes. Keep all of your trash inside of the dumpster. Leaving it outside of the dumpster can attract pests. You also need to ensure that your trash is contained in bags, because loose trash will be more attractive to pests.
