Carpenter Ant

Prince Edward Island Carpenter Ant

With over 12,000 known species of ants, they can ultimately be divided into 2 categories: annoying but harmless and seriously damaging. Unfortunately for those who have carpenter ants in their home, they fall under the seriously damaging category, which will most likely need pest control services. Carpenter ants got their name because of the way they damage the wood within your home. While they are often confused with termites, they don’t consume wood. Carpenter ants chew through and excrete the wood to make pathways for themselves and their thousands of family members. A sure sign that you have carpenter ants in your home is if you start seeing random piles of particles that look like wood shavings.

Attracted to Moisture

If there is a moisture issue in any part of your home, carpenter ants will be attracted to these areas. They love wet and or mouldy wood; however, carpenter ants don’t always get into your home by chewing their way through this wood. They can also enter the home through any crack or tiny opening. Once inside your home, they will begin to make nests out of the wood. Truly Nolen’s trained professionals can help identify an infestation and take necessary measures to control the carpenter ant population. Prevent Carpenter Ants From Getting Into Your Home in Charlottetown:


There are some successful ways to help prevent Carpenter ants from getting into your home, including:


  • Remove or repair any wet or rotting wood
  • Fix any leaks in plumbing or in the roof to avoid attracting carpenter ants
  • Clear any clutter that may create a shelter for carpenter ants to build a nest
  • Trust your local Charlottetown Truly Nolen technician for pest control services

How We Get Rid of Carpenter Ants

Truly Nolen offers advanced techniques that include undetectable liquid products brought into the colony by the carpenter ants themselves. This product is then spread actively throughout the colony controlling the population. We eliminate all ants by treating the entire nest before removing it instead of temporarily getting rid of visible pests. We will then determine the point of entry to eliminate any chances of them returning.

Four Seasons Approach

Our Four Seasons approach is a proactive program that addresses the changes in pest behaviour throughout the seasons. Carpenter ants can cause problems throughout the year, but Truly Nolen can help prevent that from happening with the Four Seasons approach. It is essential to seek professional help immediately if you see any signs of carpenter ants in your home or business. For carpenter ant removal in Charlottetown, the experts at Truly Nolen have the experience and tools necessary to rid your home of any pests native to the region.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Prince Edward Island Bed Bug Image

Charlottetown is most renowned for its natural beauty, with acres of parks and gardens for residents and visitors to explore. Located on the south shore of the island, it is home to around 36,000 people. This charming town offers an ideal mix of history, charm, hospitality, food, and culture that can’t be beaten. However, with many tourists drawn to the beautiful historic town,  Charlottetown residents are advised to be on the lookout for bed bug infestations. Bed bugs can get into homes and businesses on almost anything that gives them a place to hide. They can travel into areas on clothes, purses, briefcases, backpacks and luggage, leaving residents to need pest control services.

What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are biting insects that feed on blood, usually at night. Their bites can result in a number of health issues, including skin rashes, allergic symptoms, and psychological effects. These tiny pests can cause extreme anxiety in homeowners and can infiltrate even the cleanest homes. Due to their small size and nocturnal behaviour, many people don’t even know they have a bed bug problem until they are dealing with a full-blown infestation.


Over time, if a bed bug infestation is untreated, it can spread out to other areas of the room. You may find them in places around the bed and beyond, such as:


  • In electrical outlets
  • Between seams in couches
  • Under wall hangings
  • In folds of curtains
  • On clothes hanging in closets
  • In clothes folded in drawers

Keep Bed Bugs Out of Your Home

Bed bugs can be a horrible experience, but some tips could help prevent them from making their way into your home.


  • Check beds in hotels when travelling
  • Inspect any used furniture brought into your home
  • Avoid placing bags near furniture or walls in public spaces
  • Call professionals at the first sign of bed bugs

Rodent Control

While most rodents that live in Charlottetown are happy to live outdoors, some prefer the warmth and security of your home. But if they do make it into your home, it can cause a serious issue that you need to handle right away. Rodents carry diseases, and they can cause destruction in a home and destroy your belongings.


Contact Truly Nolen today for our expert pest control services if you have identified a rodent infestation in your home or business. We can help to determine the infestation, remove the rodents, and prevent them from coming back. With our Four Seasons approach, we understand that pest behaviour changes throughout the year. Our technicians treat your home or business to stay ahead of the pests and prevent any infestations.

How Many Are There?

For some homeowners, there is nothing more frightening than seeing a rodent scurry across the kitchen floor. The most unfortunate part is that there may be many more behind the walls or in the attic if you have seen one.


Some easy prevention tips to keep rodents out of your home or business are:


  • Don’t leave pet food on the floor
  • Empty garbage cans regularly and keep them sealed
  • Keep open food in sealed containers
  • Keep your home in good repair

Causing Problems

Although rodents are naturally timid around humans, they can reproduce quickly. So, at the sight of the first dropping, schedule a professional service before an infestation can cause the following issues:


  • Property damage: Rodents have constantly growing teeth, so they need to gnaw on items to keep them worn down. This can cause damage in a home as they are known to chew on electrical wire, plumbing lines, insulation, and wood joists.
  • Disease and illness: Rats and mice are known carriers of strep and other bacteria and virus. These diseases can be passed on from rodents through contact or airborne transmission.
  • Risk of fire: Rodents that chew through wires can damage the system and increase the risk of a house fire.
  • Scratches and bites: Rodents can scratch or bite if they are cornered or curious. Children and pets can be especially at risk.

Each home and business is unique, with various entry points and conditions that can make it ideal for a rodent infestation. The experts at Truly Nolen take the time to thoroughly inspect your property, identify any entry points, safely remove rodents, and create barriers for re-entry. Contact us today for rodent removal in Charlottetown at the first sign of rodents.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Prince Edward Island Bee and Wasp Control Image

Finding bees or wasps around your home in Charlottetown can be concerning. You may be unsure of the risks they present or how to respond. At Truly Nolen, handling wasp and bee infestations is our specialty.  We understand and respect the role of bees in our ecosystem as pollinators but also know that yellow jackets can create life-threatening situations for some. When dealing with wasps and bees, it is always advised to let a professional handle the job. For bee removal in Charlottetown, Truly Nolen has got you covered. 

An Obvious Infestation

It can be fairly obvious when bees or wasps are on your property as a loud buzzing noise accompanies their bright yellow-black patterns. These stinging insects were designed by nature to warn other animals that they should stay away. Unfortunately, you may not have the option of leaving them alone if they are making a nest on your front porch or in your attic. 


Bees only need one single season to create a colony. Honey bee queens lay hundreds of eggs, and their larvae grow into adulthood in under a month, so it is vital to contact pest control specialists as soon as possible. To find a colony, you may only simply need to observe where the bees are coming from – just make sure to keep a safe distance as you do so. As bees are so small, they can fit into the gaps in wood framing, siding, and other manmade structures. This is often how they get into an attic and start a colony. 


Even if you have determined where the colony is located, an expert is often needed to determine the full extent of your infestation. So, at the first sign of buzzing, contact Truly Nolen for wasp removal in Charlottetown. Before our technician can get to your home or business, try to avoid a situation where a sting is likely. Bees are usually inactive at night, so going into bee-infested areas later is often safer. Also, wearing light-coloured, smooth clothing that covers as much of the body as possible is best to avoid getting stung. 

The Dangers of DIY

The removal of bees or wasps shouldn’t be taken lightly. Performing DIY is not recommended and can even be dangerous. Contact the professionals at Truly Nolen for bee and wasp removal that is safe and effective.  Ask about our Four Seasons approach to help prevent a bee or wasp infestation year round. This program offers four scheduled visits a year, and any customer who encounters a bee or wasp problem between visits will get their account serviced at no extra cost. Don’t wait! Call us today

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Prince Edward Island Spider Control Image

Spiders are naturally found around the globe, including in Charlottetown. In fact, this area is home to various species of spiders, some of which may try and get into your home for food and shelter. But not to worry, the specialists at Truly Nolen provide professional spider removal in Charlottetown for residents and business owners. The key is knowing when to call our team for expert help.

The Dangers of Spiders

Charlottetown and the surrounding areas are home to various types of spiders, and while that may seem disheartening, you can rest assured that most pose more of a nuisance than a real danger. The idea of being bitten by a spider may be disturbing, but the spiders most commonly found in Charlottetown pose no real risks and are generally not harmful to humans thanks to their small and relatively harmless fangs. Spiders are also unlikely to bite unless they somehow feel threatened. Spiders can also leave annoying webs throughout your home. These webs may not be dangerous, but they are unsightly and unpleasant when you unknowingly walk through them. Our technicians understand how frustrating spiders can be and recommend contacting pest control services at the first sign of them in your home.

Common Types of Spiders

Charlottetown is home to various types of spiders, but there are three that you may encounter most commonly; the wolf spider, cellar spider, and common house spiders. The wolf sider is perhaps one of the most alarming spiders to spot in your home. This type of spider likes dark spaces and debris that can hide them, including your attic, garage, and basement. Wolf spiders don’t make webs, so vacuuming rooms frequently is your best defence against them. Just as their name suggests, cellar spiders are commonly found in the basement. These spiders make webs to keep their egg sacs, so regular cleaning and keeping webs away with a vacuum or broom will make your basement less inviting.


Common house spiders are found all around the home and make webs anywhere they can. Try to keep the webs cleared to discourage an infestation. Monthly vacuuming should do the trick to keep them away and fill in any holes in window screens to eliminate any easy entryways into your home.

Deter Spiders from Your Home

There are a few steps you can take to help deter spiders from your home. These include:


  • Taking down their webs
  • Remove any potential hiding spots
  • Vacuum floors, including corners, regularly
  • Vacuum corners of ceilings
  • Clear clutter from floors
  • Use a dehumidifier to lower humidity in basements
  • Use Truly Nolen’s Four Season approach


While these steps may help to slow the spread of a spider problem, it is best to reach out to professionals if the issue gets out of hand. Truly Nolen’s technicians are trained to develop a safe and effective Integrated Pest Management approach to help eliminate infestations. Contact our team today for Spider removal in Charlottetown.
