Pests, including mice and cockroaches, can easily find their way to your home in search of food. These pests can dig through garbage in outside cans or look for food waste inside your home. If they find good sources of food, they’re likely to stick around. Being proactive about waste means you’ll have a lower risk of needing a NJ exterminator for a widespread pest problem.
Waste Management for Indoor Areas
To keep pests away inside your home, keep food waste in a separate trash can if possible. This makes it easier to toss this waste into an outdoor bin on a regular basis instead of leaving food waste in trash bins inside your home. Getting rid of food waste inside your home as soon as possible helps discourage pests. When you do have food waste in your kitchen or other indoor area, make sure it’s in a tightly sealed trash bin or can.
Waste Management for Outdoor Areas
Rodents and bugs can scour outdoor areas in search of food waste. This can raise the risk of having them come into your home. Store food waste in outdoor bins that are securely sealed. This helps keep rats, cockroaches, and other pests from being able to get to food waste. Make sure you have your outdoor trash collected on a regular basis, so it doesn’t build up inside bins or cans.
