I’ve become a popular guy around here, with my sure-fire method for banishing maggots from your garbage cans.
Mr. Nature here–and yes, it’s a disagreeable subject, we needn’t dwell on it: but not to worry. Here’s how you can get rid of maggots all summer long, easy as pie.
Simply take a can of Comet cleanser (other brands might work as well, but I always use Comet) and sprinkle some on the bottom of the garbage can and around the sides. When you throw out your first new bag of trash, sprinkle some Comet on that, too. And keep the lid on the can.
In the hot summer weather, the Comet will give off a weak chlorine gas that’ll kill the maggots and keep the flies from getting in to lay more eggs. Repeat as needed, depending on the severity of your maggot problem.
Comet is cheap and it will wipe out the maggots. Trust me on that.
