With state-of-the-art detection, strategic prevention, and removal techniques at our disposal, we ensure your Niagara residence remains a safe harbour.

Understanding the Rodent Threat in Niagara Homes

The Niagara region is a beautifully diverse area, but with such beauty comes unique challenges in home protection, especially against invasive pest species. One of the biggest threats to your home is the potential invasion of rodents. Unlike their depiction in charming children’s books or cute cartoons, the reality of living with these furry home invaders is less than pleasant. 

The Hazards of Housing Rodents

Rodents can carry diseases, cause property damage, and even disrupt your peace of mind — and they’re not constrained by seasons. True control means being as vigilant in preparing for their arrival as they are at winterizing your home. 

Signs of a Pest Problem

How do you even know if you have a pest problem? There are clear indicators that every homeowner should be aware of:

  • Droppings: Rodent feces are a sure sign of infestation. They are often found in places where rodents are active, like cupboards, under the sink, or along baseboards.
  • Gnaw Marks: New, rough wood gnaw marks indicate a current infestation, while older, smooth, and cleaned wood marks can show previous issues the rodents believe they’ve ‘fixed.’
  • Strange Noises: Hearing scratching in the walls or ceilings, particularly at night, can be a clear sign of unwelcome pests
  • Unusual Pet Behaviour: If your pets suddenly start sniffing around a particular spot or become fixated, there might be a good reason.
  • Nests: Any kind of shredded paper or other soft, warm materials indicate rodent nesting behaviour.

Understanding these signs is the starting line to a rodent-free finish.

Why DIY Is Not the Best Path

While the internet offers countless DIY solutions, the expertise required to get rid of a rodent invasion truly is substantial. Over-the-counter products can come with health and safety risks, not to mention rarely provide a comprehensive solution to a complex problem. Professional pest control is not just more effective; it is often safer and can bring homeowners peace of mind.

Truly Nolen understands the pest threats specific to the Niagara area. Our personalized approach starts with a comprehensive inspection of your property, from the outside in, to determine potential entry points and risk areas. 

Our Four Season Approach takes into account the unique habits of rodents during each season and capitalizes on them to keep your home secure. This comprehensive, year-round method is the best way to ensure that pests aren’t just temporarily repelled, they are totally excluded and your home becomes an unwelcoming environment for potential invasions.

Embarking on the Journey of Residential Pest Control

Spring Programs

Spring in Niagara signifies the time of renewal and growth, traits that rodents are all too aware of. With food sources like garden seeds more plentiful, they look to your home as a supplementary pantry. Our spring program focuses on exclusion methods, sealing up entry points, and staying one step ahead of the breeding boom.

Summer Safeguards

Summer brings a different challenge – an expanded colony. The smaller issue left unchecked in the spring can become a significant problem in summer when rodents are most active and capable of causing real damage. Our approach involves consistent monitoring and control techniques, ensuring your home remains off their holiday itinerary.

Fall Fortification

Preparation for winter begins in the fall, which means it’s the most crucial time to fortify the safe space that is your home. Rodents are searching for warm shelter for the coming months, and Truly Nolen’s Fall Fortification Program is designed to ensure your home isn’t on their list. With weatherproofing, exterior baiting, and population control measures, our strategies are engineered to combat winter’s worst.

Winter Watch

The most formidable defence against rodent invasions during winter is understanding their behaviour patterns and counteracting them with effective deterrents specific to the coziest of seasons. We ensure your home is a challenging environment for rodents in these cold months, employing techniques to maintain a rodent-free sanctuary.

A Customized and Continuous Approach to Your Home

Our services are personalized to fit the unique footprint of your home. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution, because every property is different. Our teams continually adapt our methods based on our ongoing assessments. And while the focus is on rodent exclusion, it also comes with the assurance that other pests are also kept at bay.

Getting Serious with Large Rodents

Understanding the Enemy: Norway Rat

The Norway rat, often just called a ‘rat’, is a robust and powerful rodent that can plague residences and deceive homeowners with its behaviour. They are exceptional climbers and adept at squeezing through the smallest of openings. Truly Nolen specializes in identifying and sealing off these potential entry points.

The Intricacies of Mice Control

Mice might be smaller, but they’re just as problematic. For each mouse you might see, there could be a dozen more you don’t. Our approach to mice control involves more subtle, small-scale entry points in a home’s defence, ensuring every vulnerable area is taken care of.

Swift and Overwhelming Control Measures

Our methods strike fast and hard, addressing the immediate infestation while simultaneously installing proven barriers against future attempts. This is not a brief skirmish against rodent invaders; this is lasting control.

Maintaining the Peace

After we’ve gone through the Four Seasons with you, our annual inspections are the proverbial cherry on top. We come back to your home to double-check that everything is as it should be. This allows us to spot and address any potential issues before they can escalate into a problem.

We are committed to the environment as much as we are to our clients. Our control methods use the latest in ecological pest solutions that minimize impact without compromising efficacy. We are also constantly staying on the cutting edge of pest management techniques and technologies, we offer advanced features like rodent traps with wireless monitoring, keeping your family safe with a proactive response.
