Our Services

We are an accomplished pest control service and have experience dealing with pests of all species and types. Primarily, we provide pest removal services for:

While we can help with any pest control situation, some problems seem more prevalent than others. For example, rodents and carpenter ants are common problems in Canadian homes. 

Rodent Solutions

Rodents cause significant damage to Cornwall properties. Mice and rats must constantly chew to file down teeth that never stop growing. If they do not file down their teeth, the teeth can cause infection, inability to eat, or death.

Because the animals chew so much and often, they can create health and safety risks. Rodents chew anything, including wires and structural beams, creating risks of fires and property collapse.

We eliminate and correct the risks of rodent infestations by using exclusionary measures, traps, and vector controls. Vectors are insects and pests that feed on mice, like fleas, ticks, and mites.

Carpenter Ant Treatments

Carpenter ants are some of the most destructive pests in the Cornwall region. Despite the pervasive misconception, carpenter ants do not eat wood. The insects burrow through wood, removing it as they go. As you can expect, removing wood will weaken the structural components of homes or facilities.

It is essential to notify us as soon as you suspect a carpenter ant infestation. The more time these pests have to establish colonies, the more damage they will do. Also, carpenter ants will not create a single colony in a building; they will spread out and form secondary colonies.

Our team will identify the entry points of colonies and apply liquid treatments. The ants will transmit the chemicals back to the colonies through food or contact.

Our Four Seasons Program

Pests are not only active in the spring and summer. If you want complete protection, you must focus on treatment and prevention throughout the year. Because we understand the need for consistent pest control solutions, we offer a four seasons program with a service guarantee.

Pest Control

Cornwall, ON Pest Control Image

The team at Truly Nolen is proud to extend our service area to include Cornwall, Ontario. As Ontario’s most eastern city, Cornwall is a beautiful location that is home to more than 45,000 people. The city is also home to a variety of pests, including rodents, insects, and wildlife, that can cause damage to property and carry diseases.


Finding a reputable pest control company is important for keeping insects and rodents out of your home. Truly Nolen offers pest control in Cornwall so you never have to worry about your home being overrun by unwelcome pests.

Common Pests in Cornwall

Located at the spot where Quebec, Ontario and New York converge, Cornwall is in a lovely region with significant rainfall and can experience harsh winters. It is home to several famous attractions such as the Saunders Hydro Dam Visitor Centre and Lamoureux Park. There are plenty of opportunities for both locals and tourists to explore the beautiful landscape around the city.


However, Cornwall’s landscape also makes it a prime region for many common household pests. Residents of the city deal with a wide variety of pests ranging from rats to spiders, although bed bugs, ants and mice are the most common pests found in Cornwall homes. You can often deter pests from your home by taking preventative measures, but partnering with Truly Nolen is the best way to protect your house.

Services We Offer for Pest Control

Nolen, we have extensive knowledge of many types of pests so we can provide effective treatment plans that are customized to meet your needs. Not only are we knowledgeable about the most common household pests in Cornwall, but we can also help get rid of spiders, flies and other pests.


Regardless of which type of pest you are dealing with, our services include finding the entire colony and using special products to get rid of it. We can also give you helpful tips to prevent the issue from reoccurring in the future.

Benefits of Our Four Seasons Pest Control

When you have a pest infestation in your home and need to know how to get rid of pests, an expert technician can help. However, prevention is always the best route. Having your home treated for pests throughout the year deters pests from settling into your house during seasons when they are most active.


That’s why we offer our Four Seasons Pest Control Program. When you enroll in this service, we visit your home several times each year and spray products intended to deter pests. This approach allows us to identify signs of pest presence before you are dealing with a full-blown infestation, and by keeping up with determents, we can drastically reduce the chances of pests entering your home.


Another benefit of our program is that it provides broad protection against a wide variety of pests. Instead of concentrated treatment to eliminate ants, mice or bed bugs, our products deter all types of pests so you don’t have to share your home with unwelcome guests.


Finally, periodic visits throughout the year allow us to show you how to fortify your home to deter pests. We can point out small holes in your home’s exterior that could grant mice or rats access to your attic, and we can identify weak spots in your home’s structures that make prime environments for carpenter ants.

Carpenter Ant

Cornwall, ON Carpenter Ant

Wood plays a significant role in home construction, and in Canada, homeowners and business owners love to showcase the beauty of the natural element by using it structurally and ornamentally. Unfortunately, using so many wood elements can attract one of the most severe structural pests in the region: carpenter ants.


Carpenter ant removal is essential at the first sign of these destructive insects, and Truly Nolen is a local resource for all Cornwall homeowners and business owners. Our business is pest control and removal, and we will not stop until your home or commercial space is secure from invasive insects or wildlife. Our carpenter ant solutions work fast and help to ensure the strength of your property’s structure.

How Truly Nolen Can Help With Pest Removal

Truly Nolen is a family-operated company since its inception in 1938 by founder Truly David Nolen. With over 80 years in pest control services, we pride ourselves on our sense of family and our support of families and professionals.


When you contract our services, you receive our promise and guarantee that we will do everything in our power to correct your pest problem and leave your property better, safer, and healthier than we found it. We can make such a commitment because of our three-step process.

1. Home and Pest Assessment

As one of the leading pest control services in Cornwall, we aim to diagnose insect problems quickly and efficiently. Carpenter ants make their nests in wooden structures and structural elements, but they also leave evidence.


People often assume that these ants eat wood, but that is not true. The insects burrow through wood, meaning they must remove the sawdust. We look for small holes in beams and other locations and attempt to locate tiny piles of sawdust near these entry points. Besides seeing the pests, the holes and wood remnants are decisive evidence of an infestation or colony.

2. Planning and Action

Carpenter ants weaken a building’s structure. If the infestation or spread of the colony is large enough, significant damage can occur, financially and physically.


Our experts can identify the warning signs of infestations, and they can determine the best course of action. We will not move forward without a plan to eliminate the problem and repair your property.


Our process includes advanced techniques, such as undetectable liquid products. Our treatment techniques allow for the seamless integration of insecticides into colonies through direct contact and food exchanges, providing an effective means of population control.

3. Prevention and Control

Unlike other pests, carpenter ants are active all year. While primarily a problem in the spring, they can become a nuisance anytime. However, the ants will typically choose the wood that is near a water source or damp for easier mining during the winter months. The ants will build colonies in basements or other humid areas to keep warm during harsher Canadian winters.


Truly Nolen offers four-season protection to ensure your home or business remains safe and free of pests throughout the year. Our Four Season program addresses pest behavioural changes that occur throughout the year.

Our carpenter ant pest control problem will eliminate the threat to your building and property, and our year-round service options will ensure the problem never returns. As a leading pest control service, we strive to provide the best and quickest services possible. We know how important it is to get your home or business back to normal, so you feel safe. If you suspect your property has a pest problem, contact us and schedule an inspection.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Cornwall, ON Bed Bug Image

Keep Bed Bugs Away in Cornwall

Bed bugs are pesky insects that hide in the folds of fabric surfaces and feast on blood, leaving itchy bites on people and pets. The insects multiply quickly and females can lay up to 20 eggs after each meal, so you could be dealing with a full-blown infestation within a few weeks of bringing home a single bed bug. Keeping the insects out of your house is the best way to prevent an infestation, and if you do find bed bugs in your home, you must call an expert for help with bed bug removal in Cornwall.

Signs of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small, roughly the size of an apple seed, and they tend to live deep in the crevices of fabric surfaces, coming out at night in search of a meal. These characteristics mean that you may not see bed bugs for a while, even if you have many of the insects living in your home. Look for the following signs to know when it’s time to call a technician for bed bug removal:


  • Itchy bites on your extremities when you wake up
  • Reddish stains on the sheets that indicate dead bed bugs you crushed while sleeping
  • Small black dots that are bed bug excrement
  • Visible bed bugs in your sheets or carpet
  • Pale yellow exoskeletons
  • Clumps of eggs

Calling a professional immediately is the best course of action if you see any bed bugs in your home. DIY removal methods are often ineffective and cause the problem to get worse instead of solving it.

Ways To Deter Bed Bugs

As notorious hitchhikers, bed bugs often make their way into your home by sneaking onto your clothes or luggage after a trip. One way to reduce this risk of bringing bed bugs home is to avoid placing your luggage on the floor when you travel. You can also wrap your luggage in plastic bags to keep bed bugs from latching onto it.


At home, reducing the amount of clutter in your house gives bed bugs fewer places to hide so you are more likely to notice them before a few bugs turn into an infestation. Vacuuming frequently also helps prevent bed bugs, and washing your bed linens, curtains and other fabric-covered items on a regular basis is a good preventative measure.

Steps We Take To Remove Bed Bugs

Although bed bugs are most commonly found in beds, they can travel up to four feet when searching for a meal, so they can be found in your carpet and on furniture and drapes. The first thing technicians at Truly Nolen do to remove bed bugs is inspect your home to gain a better understanding of the scope of the problem. We’ll thoroughly examine every fabric surface in your house to find spots where bed bugs are hiding.


We then use a state-of-the-art misting system to deploy special products into the affected areas of your house. These products kill bed bugs but have no lasting effects to damage you or your pets, and the misting system allows the products to penetrate deep crevices to eliminate all of the insects in your home.


Using special equipment, we clean the fabric surfaces in your house to get rid of bed bug carcasses and ensure we have thoroughly treated the area. The final step in bed bug removal is to provide tips on preventing future infestations.

Rodent Control

Cornwall, ON Rodent Control Image

Mice removal is an essential service Truly Nolen Canada in Cornwall provides. Many people underestimate the significance and danger a rodent infestation can present to property and people. The worst part about infestations is how quickly they manifest and grow.


Mice and rats reproduce much faster than other species. It is common for a minor problem of only a few rodents to multiply to several hundred within six months to one year. Unfortunately, rapid reproduction is not the only reason to take sightings seriously.

Rodent Infestations: Hazards and Risks

Rodents are unintentionally destructive creatures. It is essential to say that no animal or pest operates with malice. Too many property owners lean toward hating creatures for being destructive, but the animals only operate out of survival instinct. Still, while rodents might not mean to cause harm to a structure, they do, and the damage they create is dangerous and can present health risks.

Property Fires

The most significant and life-threatening risk presented by rodent colonies is the potential for fires. Rats and mice have teeth that perpetually grow, meaning they must file them down or risk injury, infection, or death. To file their teeth, rodents chew. Unfortunately, the animals do not discriminate between chewing materials, so they may gnaw at structural beams or take bites out of wires and cables.


Also, they will look for nesting materials. The material may be cardboard from storage boxes, book pages, or wall and ceiling insulation.


With exposed wires and loose, flammable materials, rodent infestations present significant risks of fires. The scariest part about the risk is most damage occurs in attic spaces or within walls, meaning people may not know the level of danger they are in.

Rodent Bites

Rodents are vulnerable animals, being so small. While tiny, they still defend themselves against threats, real or perceived. Children seem more susceptible to bites and scratches than adults, but grown-ups are also at risk.


Rats can transmit bacteria and viruses, leading to severe illness or possible death. The best way to avoid the risk is to ensure the interior of your property is sealed against infiltration, and we can help.

Cross Contamination

The mere presence of rodents on a property is a health risk. A rodent does not need to bite or scratch a person or pet to transmit disease or infection. Rats and mice can transmit viruses and other illnesses through urine or feces. They can also contaminate surfaces and food by walking over them.


It is not enough, then, to remove or eliminate the infestation. Property owners must ensure all surfaces are sanitized and all remnants of the animals removed. Our mice and rat removal services include sanitation techniques to ensure safety and health.

Truly Nolen’s Pest Control Approach

Our pest control process includes exclusion, trapping, and vector control. The most effective way to deal with a rodent colony is through exclusion techniques, which include one-way exits. By sealing the majority of entry points around your property and installing one-way doors, we can help eliminate the majority of an infestation in a few days.


After the use of exclusionary practices, we will seal all entry points and begin trapping or using bait to reduce and eliminate the remainder of the population. Patience is essential to this process because, depending on the size of the colony, total removal can take a few days or weeks.


Finally, rodents can give way to other pests, such as fleas, ticks, mites, and roaches. The final phase of our service is vector control. We use products and techniques to eliminate any remaining insects and pests, ensuring your property is healthy and safe for your family or clients and employees.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Cornwall, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

Bee and wasp nests present significant problems for businesses and residential properties, especially if someone is allergic. While your initial reaction to a nest sighting might be to douse it in pesticides and remove it on your own, don’t. Contact our Truly Nolen team in Cornwall to handle the removal correctly.


It is vital to remember that bees and wasps are crucial pieces of the ecosystem, especially bees. Removal may be necessary, but there are safe and professional ways to achieve it. Talk to our team about our wasp and bee removal services.

Bee and Wasp Behaviour and Temperament

There are many species in the bee and wasp families, and knowing which you are dealing with is key to planning and action. In general, bees are more docile than wasps. Wasps tend to be more aggressive, and they also have the ability to sting multiple times.


Both species are more active in the spring and summer, but some may also be active in the fall. Also, hives and nests are typically less active in the evening. Because of allergies and the aggressiveness of different species, it is best to leave property inspections to professionals.

The Truly Nolen Approach

Founded in 1938, our business has over 80 years in the pest control industry. With so much experience, we have been an industry leader in the adoption of new techniques and control products.


Our bee and wasp control services include state-of-the-art tools and techniques. We strive to protect your home or business and the species that help better our planet and communities. We take a three-step approach to every client problem.

1. Property Assessment and Pest Identification

Before we can remove or eliminate your pest problem, we must identify the species and severity of it. There are various types of bees and wasps, each with its own unique characteristics and behaviours. By identifying specific species, we can follow protocols or create custom pest control solutions to remedy the situation, but every job starts with a property inspection for species identification.

2. Removal or Elimination Plan

Once we identify the species, we come up with a treatment and removal plan. Typically, we treat the nest or hive and remove every piece to prevent re-use; however, wasps never re-use a nest — just an interesting side note.

The month of June is the best time to focus on nest removal. Late spring and early summer represent the time when nests are being built, so addressing issues at this time can prevent the development of large hives or colonies.

3. Four-Season Approach

We offer a four-season program. Our technicians will monitor your property all year long, looking for any signs of bees and wasps. We check entry points, landscaping, and the perimeter, ensuring you or your company are not inadvertently providing a hospitable environment for insects and other pests.

Bee and Wasp Prevention

Bee and wasp prevention is all about making your space look less attractive to the species. You can achieve this by planting basil, mint, or wormwood in your landscaping, which bees and wasps do not like. Also, you can and should keep lids on your trash cans and store garbage correctly, as it can attract unwanted visitors. Besides planting specific plants and covering trash, you will also want to cover compost piles.

Contact Us and Schedule an Inspection

Truly Nolen is a leading provider of pest control in Cornwall. We specialize in the removal and elimination of all pests, great and small, including bees and wasps. If you are in need of bee or wasp removal, contact us and schedule a property inspection.

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Cornwall, ON Spider Control Image

Many people fear spiders, resulting in misconceptions about the integral species. Because of their heavily-fanged and eyeballed appearance, many property owners associate spiders with threats, but they are beneficial environmental defenders.


Despite misleading perceptions, you still don’t want to welcome spiders into your home or make them comfortable in your place of business. With proven and state-of-the-art practices, Truly Nolen’s spider removal services in Cornwall can keep spiders at bay all year.

Spider Behaviours

Most spiders present no real threat to humans, so there is nothing to fear. The arachnids come inside your property likely in search of shelter from the weather or other predators. Understanding spider behaviour can help us find them in your home or business and remove them.


Spiders tend to avoid high-traffic areas, typically choosing quiet, humid, and dark places, like basements or attics. They may also spin webs behind furniture or in closets, anywhere you are less likely to bother them.
The benefit of spiders is that they are natural insect control. Spiders feast on other pests like flies, mosquitoes, and gnats.


The problem with allowing spiders to remain indoors is reproduction. A typical female house spider can lay up to 400 eggs every reproduction cycle, and they reproduce multiple times per year.

The Truly Nolen Canada Approach

Truly Nolen started in 1938. Over 80 years after its inception, we are an international business with a sterling reputation. Our industry experience is what makes us a trusted name in Canadian households, but that experience also helped create a perfected, three-pronged pest control process.

1. Identification

Every job is unique. With the number of arachnid species, it is impossible to have one way of dealing with all of them. Our team must identify the spiders in your home or business. Only by identifying the species can we devise a plan for correcting and resolving your issue.


During the identification phase, we will also assess the infestation level and the vulnerable points in your home. Again, inspection and identification help us prepare a pest control strategy.

2. Action

Most spider infestations occur as secondary infestations. Usually, homeowners or business owners have another pest problem they are unaware of. The primary infestation is most often the cause and motivation of spiders.

We like to address the primary pest problem first. Working this way eliminates the spiders’ primary food source. Once we address the main issue, we can focus on controlling the female spider population to reduce reproduction numbers.


Finally, we implement prevention strategies to keep the spider and primary insect or pest problems from returning. The final stage may include ongoing intervention.

3. Our Four Seasons Promise

If interested, you can sign up for our Four Seasons program. The program ensures your home remains spider-free throughout the year. In the spring, we remove interior webs and treat the exterior. In the summer, we apply bait and treatments to target insects. In the fall, we seal entry points and use exterior treatments. Finally, we focus on the interior spaces in the winter, primarily on cleaning and prevention methods.

Spider Prevention

The best prevention tip we can offer is to maintain a clean and clutter-free environment. Clutter gives arachnids and insects places to hide and thrive.


Also, keep up with essential property maintenance, especially when it comes to window screens and door and window seals. Holes in these vital building elements make it easier for insects, arachnids, and other bugs to enter your property.

Contact Our Team

Whether you have a spider problem or an issue with other insects, Truly Nolen offers pest control in Cornwall and surrounding areas. Contact us and schedule an inspection.

Proudly Serving: Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and Counties of Prescott-Russell.
