Living with Florida Black Bears
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.
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.
CALL BEFORE YOU DIG
"Call 811 from anywhere in Florida two full business days before you dig and tell the operator what you are planning. At no cost to you, they will send a locator to mark the approximate location of underground utilities. If you damage the utilities; you may be liable for cost of repair".
