GOFFSTOWN - Police say they have received numerous complaints about bears in neighborhoods this spring and are asking residents to take down their bird feeders.

Police offered eight tips from N.H. Fish and Game officials to keep the bears away.

The Tips

- Stop all bird feeding by April 1.

- Clean up any spilled birdseed and dispose of it in the trash.

- Secure all garbage in airtight containers inside a garage or adequate storage area, and put garbage out on the morning of pickup, not the night before.

- If using a dumpster, inform your dumpster company that you need a dumpster with metal locking tops and doors that are inaccessible to bears and other wildlife.

- Avoid putting meat or other food scraps in your compost pile.

- Don't leave pet food dishes outside overnight.

- Clean and store outdoor grills after each use.

- Finally, never feed bears!
