Garbage, outdoor grills and bird feed commonly attract black bears. Minimize your chances of attracting black bears by:
- Putting garbage out only on the morning of collection.
- Storing garbage in waste containers with tight-fitting lids.
- Put away bird feeders and offer natural alternatives like flowers, nesting boxes and fresh water.
- Clean outdoor grills after each use, including the grease trap underneath.
