What You Can Do To Deter Pests From Outdoor Dumpsters

It is crucial that you dispose of your garbage in the right way in order to prevent pests from being attracted to your property in the future. In most cases, outdoor dumpsters will work best as a method to prevent them from entering your building, but it is still important to ensure that you take the necessary steps to ensure that they do not enter your dumpsters. As long as you follow these steps, you will be able to guarantee that your dumpster rental toms river nj will be pest free.

Common Pests That Are Attracted to Outdoor Dumpsters
Understanding the types of pests that may be attracted to your outdoor dumpster can help you identify potential problems. The presence of an outdoor dumpster may attract cockroaches, rodents, or insects. In the event that these pests are present, they might make their way to your building from your dumpster. Protecting your building can go a long way toward eliminating problems.

Overall, you’re better off doing whatever you can to deter unwanted critters from your dumpster rental toms river nj — and you can succeed by following these five guidelines.

1. Get Rid Of Local Wildlife By Building A Home For Your Dumpsters.
The placement of the dumpster is of utmost importance. The best place to place your dumpsters is on a concrete pad on a slope so that they can be easily accessed. It is the concrete that prevents rodents from digging their way in from underneath, and the slope of the ground will prevent rainwater or runoff from cleaning from sluicing into a sewer drain.

It might be a good idea to consider installing a dumpster enclosure with a door that only humans can easily open and shut if you have particularly strong or clever animals in your area (like raccoons and bears).

2. Location Is Everything
Ideally, you should place your dumpster's home at least 50 feet away from your building, to avoid pests from infesting this area. If possible, you should place your dumpster at least 100 feet away. Additionally, it is recommended that you choose a location away from thick shrubs, as well as trim the grass and weeds in the area short. In a densely vegetated area, birds and rodents feel safer hiding from predators, and this makes them more likely to nest or dig burrows next door to your garbage buffet as a result of having dense plant life.

3. Maintain Barriers
Having heavy-duty, tear-resistant trash bags as the first barrier between your trash and pests is extremely important, especially if you are throwing out a lot of food waste. In addition, you should also keep an eye out for cracks, wear, and holes in your dumpsters. Repair any openings in the dumpster with fiberglass reinforcement tape or epoxy, or consider dumpster rental toms river nj if the one you have is damaged. A small rodent will squeeze through a tiny space, not just to scavenge for food, but also to build a nest and raise its young.

4. Don’t Attract Critters With “Good Smells.”
It is said that garbage that smells foul to us smells good to pests, and vice versa. Make sure you seal all food trash that you place in the dumpster inside bags and clean up any spills that may occur around the dumpster or inside it with soapy water as soon as they occur. By rinsing food and drink containers, it will also minimize the smell that pests find so appealing that they will be attracted to them.

5. Repel Critters With “Bad Smells.”
The presence of ammonia is irritating to most animals, including humans. If you spray an ammonia solution in and around your dumpster, you will kill many insects - even cockroaches - and repel animals such as raccoons, possums, and rats from entering your dumpster.

In spite of this, it is important to be careful with the solution. The stench of ammonia should not be allowed to spread inside your building, and you should never mix ammonia with bleach, as it produces toxic fumes as the ammonia breaks down.
