Most pests are attracted to homes in search of food and shelter. Your rubbish or trash is the most common source of attraction. Rubbish on your property could be a new nesting spot for many pests too. Pests are also drawn to the waste coming out of a commercial property. Restaurants, delicatessens, and supermarkets regularly throw away their trash and food. The bin areas established for this garbage are often a hot spot for these pests. These are common grounds for pest infestations. 

Whether it’s domestic premises or commercial spaces, let’s look at some of the most common pests that your rubbish attracts inside. 

  • Ants: Ants are famous for creating nuisance in the home and ruining food items. These pests are mostly attracted to sweet food scrapes and can easily be found in kitchen waste. When these ants discover food, they leave a scented trail for others to follow. These scouts enable hundreds more to feast upon the contents. It becomes an imperative as well as difficult task to get rid of the infestation
  • Rodents: Many rodents work their way inside in case the food source is not found outside. They can squeeze through tiny holes and access your property in an easier manner than you think. They are responsible for spreading harmful diseases. Most rodents are found in and around the kitchen with garbage bins and exposed food waste. Mice have sharp teeth and chew through bin bags and boxes when searching for their next meal. Any rodent infestation should be dealt with quickly and professionally to eliminate putting your or your family’s health at risk. 
  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches are resilient insects that are attracted to the smells of food waste. They can be found behind utensils, appliances, etc., and kitchen garbage pails or waste poses an excellent food source for these insects. These pests carry a heavy dosage of bacteria and infections along with them and are carriers of various diseases. Thus, the cockroach infestations should be kept in check for a safe and secure home
  • Stinging Insects: Stinging insects like bees, wasps, and yellowjackets are also attracted to garbage and sweet drinks like soda. In the spring they look for places to build their nest or hive. Stinging insects often nest in attics, soffits, garages, roof gables, trees, and more. They are capable of delivering a painful sting but if you are allergic to stinging insects they could be deadly.
