Location is New Zealand, Christchurch, we have a green rubbish bin per household that takes organic rubbish, which is collected weekly.
In summer, flies always manage to get in and soon after maggots start to crawl out of it. I have been using fly spray every second day but I am wondering if there is a better way to prevent this explosion of flies and maggots?
One way I can think of is to:
- Every time after I dump food waste into it, I cover it up with a layer of lawn.
