How To Get Rid of Maggots In Your Garbage Can!

Updated: Sep 25, 2020

The reason why you have maggots in your trash can

While you may see them at almost any time of year, you’re most likely to run into maggots in trash cans during the hot summer months, when high temperatures and humidity create the perfect conditions. Garbage rots more quickly in the heat, and the resulting smells can begin a maggot bonanza: “Rotting food or waste material produces methane gas, which flies are attracted to. They then lay their eggs on the rotting waste. Maggots are a common garbage problem.

How to get rid of maggots in trash cans

You could spend a bunch of money buying ‘diatomaceous earth’ to sprinkle in your can. Or you could get a ‘not completely’ safe pesticide called permethrin. The way to get rid of them is by pouring boiling hot water on them, but the problem is that they will keep on coming back again and again.
