Organic materials—including food scraps, leftover bones, dairy products and oils—make up roughly 30% of the waste that American homes discard every year. Many people compost to help cut down on this waste in an eco-friendly way. However, this leftover food sitting in a bin can attract pests, such as rodents and insects. These pests can quickly become an infestation so it’s better to keep them away from your home and lawn. Follow these tips to protect your compost bin from pests:
Don’t compost animal products or fatty foods in or around your home to avoid attracting pests. Instead, store them in airtight containers until you can take them to a composting facility.
Surrounding your compost bin with wires, rocks or other obstacles to block its opening will make it a less accessible food source to rodents and insects.
Add a layer of soil and dry leaves that covers the food to help hide the smell from hungry pests.
Some insects are actually beneficial to composting. These include slugs and pill bugs, two pests whose movements aerate the organic waste. They also produce natural fertilizer that gets added to the mix. Be cautious if you notice these pests, though: it’s likely they’ll begin moving to the other plants in your garden or yard if they’re not controlled by professionals. And if you see spiders, wasps, earwigs, fruit flies, or hornets hanging around your compost bin, call Aptive Environmental Sacramento right away to begin start a personalized pest management plan for your home.

Cockroaches are one of the pests you’ll see most commonly in the spring as they look for food and water sources. Fire ants and pharaoh ants also emerge as the ground warms in spring and almost never come alone.
The change to cooler weather signals pests, including cockroaches, spiders and rodents, to head indoors for shelter. This often means the corners, crevices and storage areas of homes and other buildings.
Aphids hide on the undersides of plant leaves in the hot summer and feed around the growing points. Earwigs also like to feed on garden plants while insects such as yellow jackets buzz through the air.
While some pests hide underground in the winter, others hide in houses. Rats and mice are two rodents that are particularly good at finding ways into homes. Some ants also remain active indoors through the winter.
