WITH the hotter weather also comes an increase in the amount of maggots causing havoc in your outside bins.

But one woman has revealed a quick and easy way to keep the wriggly critters away – and all you need is some Zoflora.

Lindsay Parkes took to TikTok to share the hack, as she posted a video of herself sprinkling some of the disinfecting liquid onto a kitchen towel.

"This little thing I tried will keep your bins maggot free during the hot weather," Lindsay wrote.

"Ps this is for the large outside bin , not my kitchen bin," she added in a comment.

In another video she showed what she does with the kitchen towel – wearing gloves as she wiped the Zoflora-soaked tissue around the lid and edges of the bin.
