Garbage attracts crow and rats. Does it attract anything else too?

Dear Nilesh,

Uncovered food, sweets, cola cans and ice cream sticks attract wasps. Wasps require carbohydrates and so are attracted to food smells and that is why they can be commonly found around garbage.  But wasps can spread diseases and so sanitation outside the house is extremely important. Garbage areas need to be meticulously clean. Keep the lids of garbage bins on and don’t put leftovers in open buckets. Spray the area with disinfectant regularly.
