Ways to Secure Attractants From Bears

Bears have a great sense of smell.  Securing garbage and other attractants is an important step in reducing frequent bear visits to residential areas, like your neighborhood. Here are some ways to properly secure your trash and help stop repeated attempts by bears to access garbage.

  • Put household garbage out on morning of pickup rather than the night before.
  • Feed pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding.
  • Clean grills and store them in a locked, secure place (e.g. sturdy shed, closed garage).
  • Remove wildlife feeders or make them bear-resistant.
  • Pick ripe fruit from trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground.

  • Screened enclosures ARE NOT SECURE and WILL NOT keep bears out.

  • Inquire whether local waste service providers offer bear-resistant trash cans or dumpsters. 

  • Build a bear-resistant caddy to store your trash can. Caddies are strong, wooden sheds that secure your trash can from wildlife and can hold your garbage until it is ready for pickup.
