I recently stayed at a motel which had bed bugs, and this motel was in the same city as Joanne's office in Bruce County (Port Elgin), and I found her office's number via Google. Upon possibly finding a bed bug in my home from this motel, I found this number and had many questions. Without meeting me, and being 4 hours away from each other, Joanne actually spent a good 45 minutes on the phone with me, helping me out with suggestions and even as far as allowing me to email a picture of this bug to identify it as a bed bug or not just on her own time and free. This service was actually comforting as can be, and I wanted to go out of my way now for her, as she did for me, even not meeting each other, or ever probably, to tell her company that Joanne, clearly is going above the call for customer service. This company is lucky to have someone with that knowledge and helpful to the public. Thank you.

More About Truly Nolen of Brampton, Caledon & Bolton Area

Although Brampton started out as a small village, it grew and is still growing. Whether you live or work in this unique area, you probably already know why it’s so charming and sought after. Unfortunately, there are several pests who seek after residency here as well. At Truly Nolen Canada, we handle pest control in Brampton so you can get out and enjoy what the city has to offer.

What Are the Perks of Living in Brampton?

The perks of living here heavily outweigh the fact that there are pesky creatures that could invade your personal space. You will have to deal with the occasional pest, but that’s where we step in to take care of the problem. The perks include:

  • Affordability – Brampton is near Toronto, but the house prices are much lower. In May of 2020, Brampton had a cost of living index number of 60.78. Not only are home prices lower than you might find in neighbouring areas, but groceries, utilities, recreation and other costs are also lower. If you’re not in a position to buy a home right now, rent is also affordable in Brampton, with a wide variety of homes to choose between.
  • Beauty – The parks in Brampton alone are worth spending time near the city. While the city itself is more like streets of concrete walls, going just barely beyond those walls will find you in the midst of some beautiful parks. Gage Park, Chinguacousy Park, El Dorado Park and Edenbrook Park are available for a nice stroll, a picnic or a day out so the kids can play.
  • Location – If there’s anything you can’t find here, you’ll be able to find it close by. This city is located half an hour or less away from Toronto, Hamilton and Mississauga where you’ll find additional restaurants and recreation. Want to spend some time at the beach? Just go a little further to The Beaches and spend some time on the clear waters of Lake Ontario.
  • Transportation – Getting around is easy with a quality transportation system. If traffic is busy or your own car is out of commission at the moment, there’s always a way to get where you need to be. The bus service even allows you direct access to the airport in Toronto if you’re travelling.

Residential Pest Control

 

At Truly Nolen Canada, we take a year-round approach to pest control in Brampton. Whether you are enjoying the warmth of the summer or huddling up in the midst of a Canadian winter, pests can be a problem. Some of the most troublesome pests our residential customers encounter include:

  • Bed bugs: These tenacious critters have evolved to live alongside humans. They like dark, moist places like mattresses, but bed bugs can also be found living in other locations, such as inside electrical outlets, in upholstered furniture or behind drapes.
  • Rodents: There are numerous species of mice and rats throughout Ontario. One thing they all have in common is the ability to multiply rapidly, especially when they have a safe and warm place to live inside your home. In addition to being known vectors for several diseases, rodents can also contribute to house fires by gnawing through wiring. At Truly Nolen, we can eliminate current rodent infestations and then turn our focus to excluding new ones from entering.
  • Bees and Wasps: Most bees and wasps are not aggressive; however, that doesn’t mean you want them building a nest or hive in your home. We provide comprehensive service that will eliminate the entire colony, including the queen.

Carpenter Ant

Brampton, Caledon & Bolton Area Carpenter Ant

Brampton is one of the fastest-growing communities in Canada. Part of the appeal of the Flower City is that being located so close to Toronto’s downtown area, it offers many of the benefits of living in the city, yet the cost of living is significantly lower.

Among Brampton’s claims to fame are the beautiful historic homes that many of its earliest British settlers built in imitation of the ones they had left behind in their Cumbrian villages. However, a wooden home, regardless of its age, may be susceptible to infestations of carpenter ants requiring Truly Nolen pest control services.

What Do Carpenter Ants Do to Homes?

Carpenter ants use their strong, powerful jaws to chew through wood. They can create smooth passageways and tunnels throughout the woodwork in your home that they use to build their nests and raise their young. While carpenter ants usually do not harm humans directly, they can cause extensive property damage to wooden structures. Therefore, prompt carpenter ant removal in Brampton is essential if you confirm or suspect an infestation.

How Do You Know If You Have Carpenter Ants?

Often, the first sign of carpenter ant infestation is spotting the insects themselves inside your home. You can often recognize them by their size, as carpenter ants are one of the largest species. You may also identify them by the following characteristics:

  • Prominent jaws
  • Heart-shaped head
  • Rounded thorax
  • Dark brown or black colour (sometimes red on the thorax)

Another telltale sign of carpenter ants is piles of small wood shavings around the home. You may also be alerted to the presence of carpenter ants by noticing holes in the woodwork or hearing a faint rustling from the walls.

When Are You Most Likely to See Carpenter Ants?

Carpenter ants are active at all times of the year. However, you may be most likely to see them in the spring. During this time, ants are looking for places to make a new nest and travel in large groups to find them.

Carpenter ants tend to favour moist, humid areas in the home, such as kitchens, bathrooms, or basements. Part of the reason is that damp wood is easier for them to chew through.

What Is Involved in Carpenter Ant Removal in Brampton?

The first step is to determine the extent of the problem. The ants may have nests both inside and outside, so Truly Nolen technicians first perform an evaluation to identify all the areas of infestation. We will then offer you a customized plan of treatment and prevention. Contact us to arrange an appointment or find out more about our pest control services in Brampton.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Brampton, Caledon & Bolton Area Bed Bug Image

“Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!” Although most of us cheerfully recited this verse at some point during childhood, as adults, we understand that there is nothing cheerful about bed bugs. These tiny pests are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, routinely turning up in homes, businesses, hospitals, dormitories, hotels, and even on trains. Once inside, bed bugs reproduce quickly ­­— especially during the warmest months — and can rapidly create an infestation situation.

A bed bug infestation is often extremely challenging to eliminate without enlisting professional bed bug control services in Brampton. Early intervention is key to bed bug extermination. The sooner you discover an infestation, the more likely pest management professionals can fully eradicate the bed bugs the first time.

How To Identify Bed Bugs

 

Bed bugs have reddish-brown, flat, oval-shaped bodies. They are tiny, typically around 4-5 millimetres long, and are excellent hiders. Bed bugs are parasites that feed on human or animal blood, usually while the host is asleep. They usually feed every 5-10 days and tend to be most active at night.

Bed Bug Bites

 

Bed bug bites ordinarily appear as small red marks on your skin that usually appear while you are asleep. They are not harmful, but they can be extremely itchy, similar to flea or mosquito bites. After being bitten, bite marks can take several days to appear.

Checking for Bed Bugs

 

Most bed bug infestations start in a bedroom, usually in or near the bed. The bugs tend to hide next to seams, tufts, or buttons on mattresses, under the mattress, or in the folds of bedding. Other common hiding places include headboards, nightstands, curtains, and upholstered furniture.

Bite marks are usually the first indicator that you have bed bugs. You may also notice dark brown or red spots on your pillows, sheets, and mattress.

Ways To Prevent Bed Bugs

 

Bed bugs often enter your home on your clothes, skin, pets, furniture, laundry, packages, and luggage. Try these tips to reduce the risk of a bed bug infestation:

  • Cover your mattress and box springs with a cover that zips closed. The cover stops bugs from reaching their usual hiding places.
  • Thoroughly inspect any used furniture and secondhand clothes before moving them into your house.
  • Vacuum your bedroom frequently and wash bedding often.

How Truly Nolen Can Help

 

At Truly Nolen, we’re proud to be the leading choice for bed bug removal in Brampton. If a home inspection unveils evidence of bed bugs, your truly Nolen technician will treat your home with our unique, patent-pending system that uses high-pressure mist to penetrate cracks and seams where bed bugs might be. If you suspect that your home has bed bugs, contact us today to schedule an inspection.

Rodent Control

Brampton, Caledon & Bolton Area Rodent Control Image

Sharing your home or office with rodents is enough to keep you up at night, but the presence of these little critters may have a far greater impact on your property than you may realize. Mice and rats can share troubling diseases with their human neighbours and may contaminate food supplies. Additionally, your building may suffer from the droppings rodents leave behind or the electrical cords they chew through.

Fortunately, homeowners and business owners in Brampton are not powerless when it comes to mouse and rat infestations. At Truly Nolen Canada, we offer professional mouse and rat removal services that rid your home of rodents and prevent them from coming back.

Keeping Rodents Away

 

Ideally, property owners can avoid ever having to deal with an infestation by implementing certain preventative measures. At Truly Nolen, we recommend that Brampton’s residents create conditions within their homes that are not habitable for mice or rats. This means keeping food stored safely away, eliminating standing water and removing cardboard and paper that rodents may use to build nests.

In addition, it’s vital that you seal up your building as tightly as possible to eliminate any potential entryways the critters may be using. Rodents can squeeze through exceptionally small holes, so be sure to fill in even small cracks around windows and doors.

Identifying an Infestation

 

There are a few signs you can be on the lookout for to determine when it’s time to call a professional who specializes in rodent control. Even if you never see the animal itself, you may see its tracks on the floor and the droppings it leaves behind. Additionally, mice and rats may leave bite marks on wood, cardboard boxes and other materials.

Expertly Resolving the Problem

 

If you believe your home or place of business is experiencing a rodent infestation, it’s important to call in expert help. Mice and rats can multiple rapidly and are unlikely to leave on their own, so the issue may only grow more serious over time.

At Truly Nolen Canada, we offer rat and mice removal services that address the problem from all sides. We don’t stop at removing the critters that are already inside your building; we take steps to prevent others from entering in the future. On top of that, we help you manage any pests the rodents may have introduced to your space by treating for ticks, fleas and other bugs. When you want to kick out mice and rats for good, Truly Nolen in Brampton is the team to call.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Brampton, Caledon & Bolton Area Bee and Wasp Control Image

As the weather warms up, more and more insects make their way out into the open and increase their activity levels after a dormant winter period. That includes bees and wasps, which can be a nuisance to people. If there is a large number of active bees or wasps around your home, Truly Nolen’s bee removal services in Brampton can help you eliminate the problem, so you can get back to enjoying your yard.

Steps in the Bee Removal Process

 

It takes multiple steps to properly eliminate a bee or wasp infestation. Our technicians are trained to go through each step carefully and completely before proceeding. Here’s an overview of what you can expect when you call a Truly Nolen pest control expert:

  • Identification: The first step in our bee removal process is to identify exactly what type of bees or wasps you have. Our technicians will observe the insects present and their behaviour to make a positive identification. Then we can locate the nest and develop an appropriate plan for their removal.
  • Removal of the Bees: Depending on the type of bees or wasps that we find, we will develop a plan to eliminate them. This will usually require the use of insecticides. In some cases, swarms may be physically removed and relocated, particularly with honeybees. We will keep you informed throughout each step of the pest removal process so you know what to expect.

Types of Bees and Wasps Found in Ontario

 

Being able to identify the type of bees on your property and interpret their behaviour can help you avoid a painful interaction and identify the type of bee removal services you need. Here are some of the most common types of bees in the Brampton area.

  • Honeybees: These relatively harmless insects make nests out of wax, usually within hollows and existing voids. If you notice bees entering and exiting an enclosed space, they have probably built a nest inside.
  • Bumblebees: Native to Ontario, bumblebees behave similarly to honeybees, however, they fill wax “pots” with honey instead of a comb.
  • Carpenter (Wood) Bees: Carpenter bees burrow into wood to build nests. Take action immediately if you suspect carpenter bees are in your home since they can cause serious structural damage. Truly Nolen’s bee removal services will eliminate the entire colony.
  • Mining Bees: These often dig burrows in the ground to make their nests. These can look like large ant mounds to someone unfamiliar with mining bee behaviour.
  • Wasps: Most wasps will not act aggressively unless provoked; however, if you disturb an active wasp nest they will likely sting. At Truly Nolen, we have specialized wasp control services that eliminate nests so you can enjoy your yard without fear.

Bee and Wasp Control You Can Trust

 

Truly Nolen is a leader in pest control in Brampton and throughout Ontario. We offer a range of services including bee and wasp removal so you can enjoy your home without worrying about pests and the troubles they cause. Contact Truly Nolen Canada today to learn more and schedule an inspection.

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Brampton, Caledon & Bolton Area Spider Control Image

Prevent a spider infestation and safely remove any arachnids already occupying your home with our professional spider removal services. Many homes in Brampton may have a few eight-legged visitors, but a large number of pests and webs can pose a problem. Turn to Truly Nolen Pest Control to restore your home through our Four Seasons program.

Why Do Spiders Infest Homes?

 

Unlike ants and other pests, spiders aren’t usually entering your building to look for a new home. Instead, they’re typically drawn by food sources. A spider infestation often means there’s a significant amount of other insects in and around your home.

These pests vary in their preferences around your home. Some spiders stay in damp areas inside wall cavities, basements and crawl spaces. Others seek higher, drier areas, like your attic and the corners of a vaulted ceiling. They feed on insects, so more than a few spiders can be a sign that you need comprehensive pest control, not just spider control.

That’s why our team at Truly Nolen works around the year to provide full-service pest control. We start by identifying the extent of any issue, then we use exclusion and removal strategies to protect your property in Brampton. Thorough cleaning and sanitation promote a healthy, tidy home.

Don’t attempt to remove spiders on your own. While poisonous spiders are rare in Brampton, they do exist. Some spider bites can be serious, while others cause mild-to-severe allergic reactions. Unless you remove the pests the spiders are feeding on, removing them is unlikely to solve your problem.

What Are the Signs of an Infestation?

 

Take a few moments to inspect the corners of your rooms, your attic and basement. These dark, out-of-the-way areas are the most common areas for arachnids to live in your house. Here are some common features that attract spiders to your home:

  • Cracks around doorways and windows
  • Piles of wood or branches near your home
  • Trash bins near your home
  • Open pet food inside or outside of your house
  • Excess dust and clutter around your house

Even if you have large amounts of webs and no spiders, contact our team for a thorough cleaning. We recommend personalized solutions to prevent spiders and other pests.

How Can Truly Nolen Pest Control Help?

 

Trust our global expertise for local solutions. Schedule an inspection for pest control in Brampton with Truly Nolen Pest Control. See how we can make quick work of unpleasant arachnids and insect intruders. Restore your property with pet-friendly approaches and environmentally safe solutions.
