It’s no surprise for Pest activity to be found in bin areas and that’s exactly what we have been dealing with today. Sometimes it can be flies, other occasions it is Rodents and sometimes it is both at the same time.
There are a few simple steps that can be taken to prevent the problem ever arising and prevention is much better than cure. It saves any embarrassment or distress should clients or staff.
- Don’t over-fill the bins. This allows pest access through a lid that wont shut and reduces the chance of spillage when they are collected.
- Clean your bins. Bin juice is the perfect breeding ground for many insects and draws rodents with their acute sense of smell
- Make sure the bung in the bottom is replaced after cleaning. If you don’t, this allows rodents the perfect access into your bins and a protected food source.
