Carpenter Ant

Goderich, ON Carpenter Ant

Carpenter ants are well known for their ability to damage wooden structures in Canada. They chew on the wood of your home causing damage that can go undetected. Identifying these pests and treating them is essential to your home. While carpenter ants can be difficult to control, Truly Nolen Goderich is able to get rid of these pests through effective bait products and undetectable liquid products.


With these techniques, the carpenter ants introduce the products into the colony, controlling the population.


Our Four Seasons Pest Program helps control carpenter ants along with other pests.


Localized Facts & Advice:

  • As they eat away the wood and carve out their “galleries,” carpenter ants often mix the resulting sawdust with body parts from dead ants of the colony.
  • The carpenter ant population is growing in Goderich, Ontario and surrounding areas and residents should be aware.
  • These ants can easily overwinter inside your home if their mature nest is able to locate and secure a weatherproof area to protect themselves from the harsh winter weather.
  • Carpenter ants eat the same types of food that humans do (such as proteins, sugars, etc.) and although they don’t eat wood like termites do, their damage can be just as significant.

The keys to successfully control carpenter ants are to:

  • Immediately remove or repair any wet or rotting wood in your home.
  • Fix leaky roofs and plumbing leaks to avoid attracting carpenter ants.
  • Remove any clutter that creates shelter for carpenter ants to build their nests.
  • Trust your local Goderich pest control professional to periodically monitor for the ants.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Goderich, ON Bed Bug Image

Charming and rich with vacation appeal, Goderich welcomes throngs of visitors every year to the “prettiest city in Canada.” Some come for the stunning sunsets, the heritage, architecture or year round festivals and seasonal events; others flock here for the excellent golfing, fishing and boating opportunities. However, with the growing numbers of overnight visitors to her Lake Huron shores, Goderich residents are advised to be on the lookout for bed bug infestations. These elusive little bloodsuckers travel on clothing, luggage, furniture and artwork to take advantage of any place humans sleep, including hotels, apartments, retirement homes, vacation rentals, country clubs, colleges, universities and private homes.


Even though bed bugs pose no threat of disease, their bites can cause ongoing physical discomfort to their human hosts. Anything that bites us while we sleep can interrupt our sleep and lead to sleep deprivation and other sleeping disorders.

What should you know about Bed Bugs?

  • They bite and leave small, itchy red welts on the head, back, neck and upper extremities. Most of the time the bites appear in a line with four or five bites all in a row.
  • Bed bugs continue to be found more frequently in Ontario and other provinces.
  • They are hard to spot until they have had a blood meal. They are small, flat, oval, reddish brown insects, less than a half-inch in length. Once they are engorged with blood, they almost double in size and become much easier to find.
  • These fast moving, nocturnal blood suckers feed primarily on human blood.
  • They love sleeping warm bodies as we peacefully snore and exhale carbon dioxide. This gets the bed bugs out of hiding so they can feast on their human hosts. Once full, they will return to their hiding places, in mattresses, in upholstered headboards, in cracks and crevices and on curtains until they need another blood meal.
  • When their colony grows they will migrate to other parts of the bedroom and attach to furniture, artwork, baseboard cracks, carpet and even cling to your walls.

What should I do if I find Bed Bugs?

Whatever you do, don’t panic and throw away all your bedding, beds and other furniture. Even though bed bugs make a huge red-spotted mess and cause an unpleasant sweet, musty odor, they are not harmful (maybe uncomfortable to be bitten by them) to your health. You can get rid of them. Truly Nolen’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) System can have you back sleeping soundly. Contact Truly Nolen Goderich for a bed bug inspection, the sooner, the better.


The Truly Nolen technician will look for evidence of both current and past infestations in your Goderich home. Once detected:


  • Prep affected areas for treatment.
  • Pick up and remove all clutter and thoroughly clean all affected areas.
  • Remove and wash linens, bedding and window treatments. If the fabric allows, use the highest heat possible to both wash and dry.
  • Bag for treatment anything that has come in contact with the bed bugs.

Truly Nolen’s Treatment Solution

Truly Nolen Canada uses a high pressure misting system (patent pending) that gets the control substance into the tiniest cracks and crevices where bugs hide. Our skilled technicians know exactly where to find the bed bugs. All mattresses, box springs, bedding will be treated, along with any window treatments and upholstered furniture.


After treatment, in order to protect and prevent future re-infestations in your southwestern Ontario home, Truly Nolen Goderich strongly recommends installing encasement systems for mattresses and box springs to seal out any future bed bugs. This works two ways, it also seals in existing bed bugs that will die in a few weeks. This will save money over replacing your beds unless of course they needed to be replaced for another reason.

Stay vigilant they can return

Treated areas must be inspected after ten days. Bed bugs can still enter your Huron County home through guests’ clothing and luggage or your college student’s laptop or backpack. Truly Nolen Goderich is on the alert and will provide you with products that prevent bed bug eggs from hatching and control adult bed bugs.


Let Truly Nolen of Goderich’s service technicians show you how to spot a possible infestation. Proactive awareness of a potential problem will help your fellow residents in Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh, Huron Haven, Courthouse Square, Port Franks, Kettle Point and other Goderich neighborhoods identify early warning signs of any re-infestations.


Call Truly Nolen Goderich at (519) 524-5052 or schedule a bed bug inspection online to take care of your existing bed bug problem and help prevent re-infestations.

Rodent Control

Goderich, ON Rodent Control Image

Named “the prettiest town in Canada” by Queen Elizabeth II, Goderich is known for its sunset and historic charm. However, rodents can destroy the Goderich charm, unlike insects, mice and other rodents are not capable of going dormant for the winter.  Mice and rats are active year round building warm nests, often inside homes. They infest old buildings and crowded areas in urban environments and can enter through small spaces to enter your home.  Rodents can cause significant damage to a home or business including chewed up wiring, contaminated food and disease.

Things to Know:

  • Rodent populations grow quickly and steadily. As home or business owners, you can take precautionary measures including sealing entry points, storing food away and keeping debris away from the structure.
  • Goderich backyard composting programs in many cases creates unpleasant odors as well as attracting unwanted rodents into the neighborhood.
  • Rodents are more than just unpleasant; they are dangerous and can carry numerous diseases. Historically one of the most dangerous rat-borne diseases was the bubonic plague, also known as the Black Plague. In the late 1340s it killed an estimated 25 million people in Europe.


A successful and effective rodent control strategy typically involves sanitation measures, rodent proofing (exclusion), and population reduction (trapping). Each home is unique, with its own entry points and conditions that can make it ideal for a rodent infestation. The professionals at Truly Nolen Goderich take the time to thoroughly inspect your home, identify any entry points, and implement measures and barriers to entry.


Truly Nolen’s Complete Rodent Control Program provides a one-year guaranteed warranty and the peace of mind that comes with it. We specialize in the expert removal of Norway rats, house mice, and roof rats that are most problematic to Goderich homeowners. Call your local Truly Nolen Canada office today to schedule your rodent inspection.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Goderich, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

Goderich is Canada’s “prettiest town” where visitors and residents look forward to the variety of festivals and outdoor events that set Goderich abuzz with activity every year. In the warmer months, residents and visitors may encounter the not so welcome buzz of bees and wasps. Although honeybees and other bees play a major role in our eco-system as pollinators and as nature’s pest controllers, bees and wasps strike fear in the hearts of almost everyone.


Rational or not, your fear of bees and wasps usually stems from the fact that bees and wasps can hurt you if you disturb them. A colony of yellow jackets or wasps can go viral and create serious suffering and life-threatening situations for you and your family. In the wrong place at the wrong time, wasps and bees can become serious pests. If you think you may have a bee or wasp infestation, Truly Nolen Goderich can help. Contact us today for an inspection.


Whether you’re actually dealing with wasps or bees or some other stinging insects, it is important to distinguish between various types of wasps and bees because of their different potential problems and differing approaches to their control. While wasps tend to have smaller colonies, bees can have colonies with populations close to 100,000.

The Buzz on Bees and Wasps

  • Honeybees, bumblebees and other pollinators generally keep to their arduous work of collecting pollen for honey production.
  • Pollinators are stockier than predators with round, furry bodies and flat legs for pollen collecting.
  • Pollinators possess the capacity to sting only once, usually to defend their hive’s honey. Once pollinators sting, they die.
  • Yellow jackets, wasps and hornets are predators, preying on flies, roaches and other insects for food.
  • Predators are more streamlined and shiny, built to stab their victims multiple times with their stingers if necessary.

Truly Nolen Services

The discovery of a beehive or swarm generally creates a real sense of urgency.

Truly Nolen Inspection

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Goderich, ON Spider Control Image

When you see a spider in your home, you might find it a little creepy, but these animals are helping to reduce the populations of insects, such as ants, flies and mosquitoes. Seeing multiple spiders may be a sign of overpopulation. A good way to keep spider populations in check is to vacuum and dust frequently, especially in the corners of your home and under furniture, some of the favourite places for these little arachnids to hide. If you are finding a lot of webs, it may be worthwhile to consider some spider removal measures.

Where Spiders Live

Most species of spiders are at home outside where their prey is more plentiful, but some species, such as the common house spider, can often be found living in residential houses. Untouched closets and open boxes are a perfect hiding place for spiders. Attics also tend to have a lot of nooks and crannies, and remain undisturbed a lot of the time, making them an attractive home for spiders. A lot of spider species prefer damp areas, such as inside of the walls or in your basement.

How To Detect and Reduce Spider Infestations

It is normal to find spiders in anyone’s home, but if you see them every day and do not live in a basement, it could be the sign that their population is getting out of control. When you dust and vacuum, take note of how many webs you are cleaning up. If you vacuum and dust at least once a week, you can remove egg sacs before they hatch and release a new generation of baby spiders.


Be mindful of possible spider habitats outside of your home, and look for entry points such as cracks in the windows or holes in the foundation. Sometimes, outdoor spiders will make it into your home in their search for prey. You can prevent outdoor spiders from finding their way inside by sealing up possible entry points. If you want to reduce spider numbers outside of your home, clean up any loose foliage and trim back bushes that come close to your house.

When You Need a Professional

Having many spiders in your home could indicate that there is an insect infestation that provides a food source for the spiders. If you see venomous spiders. like black widows or brown recluses, you should look into spider control measures right away. We, at Truly Nolen Pest Control, are experts at diagnosing the root of a spider problem. Call us today at (519) 524-5052.
