Let's face it… Iowans all dislike the task of taking out dirty trash cans. It's just one more thing we have to remember to do. The fact that they're not clean makes it all the more an unenjoyable task. During the hot summer months, your trash cans will be filled with all sorts of grim and debris that festers in the heat. Food scraps, in particular, create a perfect nesting ground for flies. Hot trash cans filled with grimy trash is precisely when and where maggots thrive the most.

Why Do Maggots Infest Your Central IA Trash Cans and Recycling Bins?

When they’re searching for a place to lay their eggs, flies will seek out locations that offer warmth, protection and food. If not properly maintained, your hot, dirty Central Iowa trash bins are the ideal location for flies and their eggs to thrive since trash cans offer all of these things in abundance. Rotting organic matter is the preferred food source for maggots. Obviously, your trash cans are full of all sorts of organic waste in the form of food scraps, etc.

The warmer weather will cause the trash can interiors to become hot & humid. The higher temperatures during summer months help to enhance the odor of food remnants inside your cans. This makes it even more appealing for files to enter your cans and lay eggs. It's not long before your property is polluted with maggots (not to mention the terrible odor). In a very short time, these disgusting maggots will then hatch and grow into adult flies and continue the breeding process. Just a few tiny maggots will eventually turn into a nasty trash can infestation.
