Do you have a lot of wildlife around your home? In many rural areas, this is a common sight, and you might find it fascinating to observe them from inside your home, but sometimes when the world of man and beast intersect, you get unwanted results.
There are many animals who will do damage to your home when they start looking for food, a place to nest or water. As a homeowner, you would need to make sure that you deny access to these things from the wildlife that are around your home.
Garbage cans are definitely one of the places where you need to be careful of inviting wildlife for a meal. Food scraps and other waste can attract animals from afar if it is not bagged properly. In some areas, you might need to keep your garbage can inside a shed until it is time for garbage pickup so as to deny a meal for the critters.
