We’re a community-focused company, with each Truly Nolen location locally owned and operated to ensure the unique qualities of each town is considered in everything we do.

The Stoney Creek Community

Stoney Creek is a beautiful community that sits within the Hamilton city limits. To many residents, it represents the perfect middle ground between a major city and being surrounded by nature. Its forest, ponds, and parks provide plenty of places to unwind and truly immerse yourself in the fresh air and cool breezes that outdoor life brings.

While the area has experienced several bursts of growth, it still holds enough living space for anyone to live comfortably without cramping anyone’s style. The mixture of old buildings and new construction can also serve as a tour of the town’s architectural history.

The community serves its residents and local businesses well, with an ideal mixture of outdoor space, entertainment options, and wonderful public and private schools. There is a bevy of options to choose from when creating your daily or weekend schedule. From restaurants, shopping centers, skating rinks, and golf courses, you’ll find everything you need to live a fulfilled life in our wonderful Stoney Creek community.

Pests of Stoney Creek

The larger city of Hamilton as well as the smaller community of Stoney Creek provides plenty of varying terrains to its residents. This is obviously a boon to those who like to spend their days or weekends outdoors, but it also provides an opportunity for pests to lurk nearby.

Unfortunately, the closer your home is to these otherwise wonderful outdoor spaces, the more likely you are to find pests near or inside your home. Additionally, as many people in the community commute to Hamilton for work, pests passing through the larger city can sometimes commute back into Stoney creek.

These pests can cause a range of harm, from an annoying presence to bringing rabies or other communicable diseases near your family. So, it’s always a good idea to keep an eye out for common pests in the area, especially if you spot their presence on your property:

Our Services

Truly Nolen’s services are designed to handle residential and commercial needs. When you call us, we’ll come out to assess the property and identify signs of the pest’s presence. We’ll examine the area to find out how they have made their way inside your home so we can recommend ways to prevent their encroachment in the future.

While sometimes a one-time solution is all you need, there are also times where ongoing preventative measures need to be taken. Our Four Season Approach works by understanding how pest behaviour changes throughout the year. This allows us to take specific action based on the season and more effectively prevent pests from becoming unwelcome guests.

Contact Us Today

If your Stoney Creek home or business is dealing with pests, reach out to us today to schedule an inspection. We’ll promptly send out one of our skilled, experienced technicians to assess the area and get to work removing and preventing pests

Carpenter Ant

Stoney Creek, ON Carpenter Ant

Stop carpenter ants before they remodel your home. Truly Nolen Pest Control can identify the species of ant causing you problems, find their queen, and stop the invasion before it is too late. We are experts in safe, eco-friendly ant removal techniques that have already helped other families in the Stoney Creek area to rid their houses of unwanted pests.


Our Safe Process

We are experts who take pride in what we do. When you call us for help, we schedule a thorough home inspection. Rest assured that if there are carpenter ants, we will find them. Our technicians are trained in the identification of Ontario’s ant and termite species, so they can tell you exactly what you are dealing with. We then locate any nests inside your home or on your property and remove the queen.


Once the queen ant is gone, the colony ends. We speed up this process, however, by removing worker ants, too. We also get to the root of the problem by locating the damp, rotting wood that attracted ants in the first place. Carpenter ants do not nest in healthy wood, so their presence is a red flag that a wooden structure somewhere in your home needs replacement, and we will find it for you.


Our Prevention Strategies

Removing decayed wood is the most important way to prevent carpenter ants from returning. However, you may be vulnerable to reinvasion by a new colony, or an attack by other insect pests. During our inspection, we have the knowledge to find small openings around windows and doorframes that provide entryways. Sealing these prevents ants from coming back, and keeps your family safer from other pests, too.


Our Carpenter Ant Control Services

Figuring out whether you have termites, carpenter ants, or another kind of ant requires the expertise that Truly Nolen has gained during years of pest control experience. We know how carpenter ant behaviour changes throughout the year, and use our knowledge to control them more effectively. Our four-season pest control process adapts to the way carpenter ants expand their colonies in the spring but can stay active throughout winter when nesting indoors.


Our Commitment

Like you, we want our friends and neighbours in Stoney Creek to enjoy a high standard of living. Truly Nolen is a trusted member of the community that provides a necessary service used by many. Contact us today to get your life back to normal after a carpenter ant infestation.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Stoney Creek, ON Bed Bug Image

Up until the last couple of decades, you could have been forgiven for thinking that the bed bug was an imaginary creature made up for children’s nursery rhymes. A prominent pest throughout Europe during medieval times, bed bugs had all but disappeared 40 years ago, only to make a comeback around the year 2000.


Given bed bugs’ spotty history, we at Truly Nolen are not surprised that people have mistaken ideas about these blood-sucking insect pests. We believe that the following facts are important for you to know so that you can make a reasonable and responsible decision regarding pest control for your home or business in Stoney Creek.


Bed Bugs Can Live Anywhere

Many people believe that bed bugs can only live in areas that are dirty and neglected, but that’s false. The truth is that any place can get bed bugs, even five-star hotels and impeccably clean homes. A bed bug infestation is not a sign of poor housekeeping and should not be regarded as a source of shame.


Bed Bugs Are Visible to the Naked Eye

Bed bugs are very small, but they are not microscopic. The adults are about the size of an apple seed and reddish-brown in colour. You may not see them because they are nocturnal and are good at hiding in dark, inaccessible places when inactive during the day. These include cracks, voids, and seams.


You Do Not Need To Get Rid of All Your Possessions if You Have Bed Bugs

In the past, property owners, as well as residential tenants, were told that the only way to get rid of a bed bug infestation was to get rid of all possessions, including furniture and clothing. This is usually not necessary. In a few cases, it may not be possible to treat certain pieces of furniture for bed bugs, in which case they must be disposed of. More often, however, it is possible to save most pieces with treatment. As for clothing, it can be laundered.


Don’t Panic Over an Infestation

When you know the facts about bed bugs, they are no longer quite as scary. At Truly Nolen, we use a methodical process to first confirm the presence of bed bugs in your home and then determine a course of action. Our materials are pet-friendly, and our misting system forces them into the inaccessible places where bed bugs typically hide. Contact our team in Stoney Creek right away if you think you have bed bugs.

Rodent Control

Stoney Creek, ON Rodent Control Image

Few things are more horrifying than a rat inside your home. Rodents carry diseases that put your family at risk, and having an infestation is an unsafe situation that you need to remedy quickly. Truly Nolen takes care of your rodent problem and prevents mice and rats from returning.


Our Safe Process

We remove rodents from your home without toxic poisons that could harm you and Stoney Creek’s native wildlife. Instead, we focus on trapping the individual rats and mice inside your house. We are committed to the time it takes to stop rodents, and will come back as often as necessary to remove and replace traps as the population dwindles.


Rodents carry diseases in their urine and droppings, as well as in the fleas and ticks they carry. Therefore, a thorough cleaning is necessary once they are gone, and you may need us to remove lingering insect pests as well. We are experienced in the sanitation procedures necessary to return your home to a safe condition. Chewed wires and insulation also may create a fire risk that needs attention from an electrician.


Our Prevention Strategies

Rodents will attempt to return to a place they have colonized. Because a mouse can fit into a crack the size of a 10-cent piece and a rat into a hole the size of a quarter, our technicians will search for and seal any tiny openings they find around your home. Setting up a recurring monitoring system through our four-season pest control method is the only way to keep the animals out for good.


Our Rodent Control Services

We know that having rodents in your home is a nerve-wracking and embarrassing experience. We understand what you are going through and are here to help. Female rats give birth to around 60 babies per year, so the situation will only get worse if you don’t act now. Don’t wait until they have chewed your electrical wires or one has bitten someone while they sleep. Calling us is the most important step you can take in getting them out of your home.


Our Commitment

Truly Nolen is famous throughout the world for our safe and effective methods of eliminating rodents. For over 80 years, we have helped residents of communities such as Stoney Creek to maintain pest-free homes. We stand by our work, and will not give up on your home until we have removed all the rodents and kept them from returning. Schedule an inspection today!

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Stoney Creek, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

The bees and wasp species you see around your home in Stoney Creek is an essential part of the local food chain and pollinate trees and flowers during their life cycle. While these insects are usually not aggressive in the wild, they may become so when they nest near human homes. We at Truly Nolen want to help you identify and understand a few differences between the two species and let you know what we can do to help.


How Bees and Wasps Are Different

Telling bees and wasps apart at first may seem difficult, but there are many differences between the two. If you spot a nest, try not to get too close, as many species of wasps and hornets can be aggressive. Generally, if you see insects inside a papery grey nest and the adults have shiny bodies and narrow waists, you are dealing with wasps. If the insects are smaller and have hairy bodies with a broader waist, you have a bee nest on your property.


Bees and wasps also nest differently. Larger bees, such as bumblebees, often nest underground and honeybees tend to use rotten logs and dead trees in which to build their hives. Wasps chew up wood and use it, mud and their own saliva to construct their nests under eaves, under roof gutters and in sheds. Once you discover a nest, calling in our pest control technicians to have it removed can reduce the risk of painful stings that may occur if you try to remove the insects on your own.


How Truly Nolen Can Help

Once our pest control technicians arrive, they will verify whether the insects on your property are bees or wasps, then locate one of more nesting sites. They will then sweep the property and eliminate any nests they find. These insects are most active from late spring to early fall and can be aggressive in defending their nests from any perceived dangers, which can make them problematic when they nest near your home’s entrances and exits. Once the insects are removed, our technicians can help prevent reinfestation by treating your home in a number of ways, including:


  • Sealing holes or cracks to prevent wasp entry into buildings
  • Treating backyard play areas and children’s playground equipment
  • Removing active nests and treating areas where nesting is common.

Wasps do not reuse old nests but build new ones each summer, so you may want to have us inspect your home annually to ensure these troublesome insects do not return.


Let Us Assist You

When bees and wasps build their nests around your Stoney Creek home, their presence can be frightening and pose a risk to your family. Contact us today for assistance and reclaim your property from stinging insects.

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Stoney Creek, ON Spider Control Image

The prevalence of water and great places to hide make Stoney Creek an inviting environment for spiders. When the weather turns cooler, many will try to come into your home for warmth and protection. The professionals at Truly Nolan can help you develop a comprehensive pest prevention plan that can help keep them outside.


Common Spiders in Stoney Creek

There are numerous spiders that call Stoney Creek and the surrounding area home. Luckily, most of them will go out of their way to remain out of sight. However, there are a few that are so prevalent, you are bound to run into them in and around your home. These three spiders are commonly found in Stoney Creek and throughout Ontario.


Common House Spiders

These web-spinning pests will often try to make their home inside of yours. Keeping them outside by caulking around windows and doors and repairing any holes or tears in screens are great ways to avoid a major problem with common house spiders. Regular vacuuming, especially in rooms you don’t use that often, discourages web building.


Cellar Spiders

As their name implies, these spiders are happy to hide in dark, damp places like a basement or crawl space. Limit their entry by sealing cracks around windows and doors and use a broom or vacuum to remove visible webs. Take steps to control humidity levels in the cellar, too. Running a dehumidifier, vent fan or air conditioner can help.


Wolf Spiders

Thanks to their large, hairy appearance, some homeowners confuse wolf spiders with tarantulas. However, of the two, only the wolf spider calls Stoney creek home. With legs that can span more than 7 mm, these are not something you want to find in your home. Wolf spiders are attracted to darkness and debris, so keeping your space clean will help. Since they do not make webs, you will need to stay on top of vacuuming. Try to keep wood, mulch, and leaves away from the home’s foundation. Increasing light inside the house by adding a fixture or opening window treatments will also discourage them.


Local Pest Control Experts You Can Trust

Don’t let spiders keep you from enjoying every part of your home. Whether you need a single treatment or a comprehensive pest control plan, Truly Nolan’s experienced and professional pest control experts can help. We proudly serve homes and businesses in Stoney Creek and the surrounding towns with affordable prices and effective pest control techniques.
