Take a smart approach to garbage disposal
An open garbage lid is like ringing the dinner bell for hungry pests. Flies, wasps, rodents, and even bears are attracted to your trash, so make sure your garbage cans and organic waste bins are securely sealed up. And after that yummy BBQ or summer picnic, bring in any leftover food and clean up spills.
Keeping your yard pest-free can be a challenge. So if you find that your property has been overrun with raccoons, moles, rats, mice, or other annoying vermin, don’t reach for a shotgun—reach for the nearest phone instead. Contacting a pest control specialist to handle all your critter problems will save you time, money, and your yard!
