Pet Food Storage

Post by KindClare » Wed, 11 Aug 2010 3:42 pm

I have been looking and looking for some airtight container to store dry dog food. I don't get the giant bags, maybe the 3-5kg bags - but can't seem to find anything large enough. Anyone have any tips or suggestions on where to go?

Thanks in advance!

There are a number of plastic storage containers in various sizes on the L1 in Giant at VivoCity. I think one of those would suit your purpose. Out of curiosity, is it a big concern that it's airtight? I've been leaving my dog (and cat) food in the bags and it's been fine so far. I buy the 20kg bags so they're open for about 2.5 months before they're gone.

Thanks - I'll check there this weekend.

I suppose it is paranoia more than anything but the Serviced Apartment we were in for 4 weeks had cockroaches and I don't want them coming into our condo, now that we are here to stay!

Boy are you in for a rude awakening! You do know them sucker can fly don't you? Not counting coming in through the garbage chute and under the doors. Just get yourself a good pest control company. Won't get rid of them but will keep their numbers down to a minimum.

These are the flying ones I'm talking about.....

Yes. I realize I am possibly just prolonging the inevitable but I think it will be somewhat helpful to make my place less 'appetizing' to them. Lol.
Any recommendations on reputable pest control companies and what I can expect to pay?

There are a list of them on my links page in the 3rd column. Most of them are okay as all have to be licensed by the NEA and have to undertake training. However, having said that, it's good to find out what types of chemical and baits they use. I would compare rates but don't go for the absolute lowest rate out front. Most can come down a bit. As I am affiliated with a fairly large pest control company, I will refrain from making any suggestions as any recommendation from me will be tainted. :P And yes, my company is in the list as well as others. Most condos usually have maintenance contracts with a pest control company already. Check with yours to ensure and to see what services they provide.
