How Do Your Store Your Pet Food?
[Return to Topics]

I am looking to store my pet foods in an outbuilding or garage. I have not been able to
find the plastic trash cans with handles that
clamp on each side--so animals and pets can't get in them or tip them over to spill the contents out. I have a HUGE Lab, and many mousers. My biggest problem with storing the pet foods on my porch is that it draws ants.

I keep hay in the barn to feed the horses. Their poop goes in the worm bin to feed the worms. The excess worms are fed to the fish in the pond. The excess fish in the pond are fed to the cats. the excess cats are fed to the rats in the pit and the excess rats are fed to the dog. See no storage problem.

Old chest freezer w/works removed works good,animals insects can't get in,EZ for you.

Note,also good for locking place to keep gas cans,charcoal,spare grill bottle etc outside the shop/garage.

Down here in the ultra-humid South, the freezers don't work so good. Moisture tends to build up in them, probably due to the insulation, which creates uneven heating and cooling relative to the outside air.

Galinvised (sp) cans, I use a rubber tie down strap to secure the lid. Trouble with plastic ones is that rats can gnaw through them.

I use a plastic 55 gal drum with a removable lid and lock ring that I got from the local feed store. I see used drums like it at surplus stores and they are advertised in the paper quite often pretty cheap. Be sure of what was in them to begin with though, mine contained supplement.

I use Rubbermaid 33 gallon cans with the snap on lids. Just keep them out of the area with the dogs and they do fine.
