Carpenter Ant

Sudbury, ON Carpenter Ant

With some 300 lakes to her name, Greater Sudbury makes an ideal place for carpenter ants to call home. Attracted to moist, wet and decaying wood around the outside of northeastern Ontario residences, these destructive creatures, vying to find a way inside your home in search of food and shelter, can also cause considerable property damage, burrowing into solid wood once inside your home.

Identifying Carpenter Ants in Sudbury

Some species of carpenter ants in Canada are predominantly black, and other species can also have brown bodies and range in size according to their roles in the colony. Some carpenter ants can grow as large as 1.3 cm. Looking for moist and wet wood for nest building, carpenter ants are drawn to wooden structures, decorative landscape wood, wood piles and wooden furniture outside Ontario homes.

If disturbed, carpenter ants will move their colonies, making new construction and home renovations great opportunities for carpenter ant infestations and in surrounding buildings as well. Also, with trails and trees and new construction, it’s no wonder carpenter ants are on the rise in Sudbury. Because carpenter ants can be tough to treat, with colonies creating satellite nests throughout a structure and moving before they can be eradicated, Sudbury residents are advised to contact a pest professional.

Inspection and Treatment

Truly Nolen Sudbury’s trained and licensed pest control professionals will conduct a thorough inspection of your property for carpenter ant activity and infestations. Once detected, Truly Nolen will devise a plan for eliminating your carpenter ant infestation and satellite nests. New advances in ?human conscious’ pest control technology include undetectable liquids that carpenter ants bring into their colonies, spreading them through colonies, reducing carpenter ant populations.

Monitoring and Prevention

Truly Nolen technicians monitor your property monthly for signs of carpenter ant activity and re-infestation.

Eliminating carpenter ant attractions can go a long way in preventing potential infestations. The keys to successful control of 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 Sudbury pest control professional to periodically monitor for the ants.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Sudbury, ON Bed Bug Image

Sudbury, the financial, healthcare and educational center of Northeastern Ontario ranks first by population as the largest city in Northern Canada and by land area, the largest city in Ontario. With a concentration of well-respected medical facilities and a number of outstanding colleges and universities, Sudbury houses many students and patients throughout the year. Sudbury hotels also host many overnight business travelers due to Sudbury’s well-established financial and industrial sectors. In warmer months, with over 300 lakes, Sudbury is also a vacation hotspot for boating, fishing and water sports. With so many overnight visitors, Sudbury makes an ideal location for bed bug infestations.

Why Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs can easily travel from downtown Sudbury to Minnow Lake on clothes, in luggage, in boxes and even in electronic devices, they can go anywhere humans go. Due to their miniscule size and nocturnal feeding habits, bed bugs can thrive, under the radar any place humans relax or sleep, whether in a student lounge at a university, in a summer rental cottage or in downtown hotels and vacation rentals.


At one time, bed bug infestations were often associated with the lower socio-economic classes, but today, bed bug infestations can affect everyone. Bed bug infestations are on the rise all over Canada.


While bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases, these tiny terrors can cause great physical discomfort to Sudbury residents and visitors. Scratching bed bug bites can cause secondary infections and lead to sleep disorders, anxiety and other psychological issues affecting the overall well-being of their host victims.

A few facts about bed bugs

  • Bed bugs feed on blood, preferably human blood.
  • Almost undetectable by the naked eye, bed bugs are oval, flat, reddish brown insects, resembling a small blood droplet.
  • Nocturnal and attracted to exhaled carbon dioxide from warm bodies at rest, bed bugs come out of hiding at night to feast on their human hosts.
  • During the day, bed bugs hide out in mattresses, fabric headboards, and other soft surfaces they can cling to, such as curtains and tucks in fabric.
  • Bed bug victims are usually alerted to a potential infestation by small, itchy, red welts on the head and neck.
  • As bed bug populations multiply, they spread to other furniture, electronic components, mobile devices, framed artwork and walls.

What should you do if you think you have a bed bug infestation?

First and foremost, contact a professional pest control company, such as Truly Nolen Sudbury. A bed bug infestation presents challenges that, if not handled properly, can result in spreading bed bugs to other parts of your Sudbury home or inadvertently, spreading bed bugs to other homes in the Greater Sudbury area. With an innovative I.P.M. (Integrated Pest Management) system, Truly Nolen’s treatments and methods get to the heart of your bed bug problem. Contact Truly Nolen Sudbury for a thorough bed bug inspection immediately.


Second, don’t panic and toss out everything in the affected area. Transporting infested bedding and other items in your home to outdoor trash receptacles can spread bed bugs to other areas of your home. Besides, most washable items, such as bedding, linens and window treatments can be laundered at high temperature settings to eliminate bed bugs and their eggs.

Truly Nolen’s bed bug inspection: What to expect

A Truly Nolen inspection will evaluate the evidence of past and present infestations in Sudbury homes from Lockerby and LoEllen in the South End to Elm West and Little Britain in the West End. Truly Nolen Canada’s skilled technicians inspect areas where bed bugs are most likely to be hiding, usually beginning with mattresses and box springs. Once a bed bug infestation is detected, affected areas need to be prepped for treatment. This includes:

  • Clearing all clutter from the affected areas. Items cleared should be bagged for treatment.
  • Thoroughly cleaning affected areas, sweeping, mopping and/or vacuuming floors. Vacuum cleaner canisters should be emptied into plastic bags, sealed and disposed of outside your home and vacuum cleaner bags should be disposed of in the same way.
  • Bag all linens, bedding and window treatments.
  • Clean all linens, bedding and window treatments at high temperatures. Heat kills bed bugs at 117 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Launder all clothing in bed bug affected area.
  • Clear and bag any articles on nightstands, dressers, chests and other furniture in affected area.
  • Bag moisture sensitive items, artwork, for example, for treatment. Leave items bagged for at least 24 hours after treatment.

Truly Nolen’s Treatment Solutions

Licensed, certified technicians drive Truly Nolen’s patent pending high pressure, misting system control components into seams and cracks where bed bugs hide. Affected mattresses and box springs will be treated, along with any window treatments and upholstered furniture and carpeting.

Encasement systems = Peace of mind

Bed bug mattress and box spring encasement systems offer cost-effective alternatives to buying new beds. After treatment, these affordable and effective encasement systems prevent future bed bug re-infestations. Truly Nolen recommends installing encasement systems to seal out any future bed bugs, while sealing in existing bed bugs that will die in a few weeks.

Truly’s continuing treatment and proactive stance

Truly Nolen Sudbury technicians will inspect bed bug treated areas ten days after treatment, taking appropriate control actions to address any signs of bed bug activity. Due to the fact that bed bugs can enter your home on guests’ clothing and in their luggage or in your college student’s laptop or backpack, bed bug re-infestations, can still occur. Truly Nolen’s diligent and thorough I.P.M. system treats for possible bed bug re-infestation with products that prevent bed bug eggs from hatching and that control adult bed bugs.

Proactive Sudbury homeowners

A few proactive measures Sudbury homeowners can take to prevent bed bug infestations are:

  • When booking hotel accommodations, check the local bed bug registry for any reports of infestations at hotels you are considering. On returning from an overnight stay, immediately launder all clothing, washable footwear and bags. Vacuum all luggage, handbags and footwear.
  • Launder linens and bedding regularly on high temperature settings. Vacuum carpeting and clean area rugs often.
  • Eliminate clutter, especially under and around beds.

Truly Nolen Sudbury service technicians are on hand to educate homeowners about bed bugs and teach you how to spot possible re-infestations. Awareness of potential bed bug problems will assist residents in Flour Mill, Copper Cliff and other Greater Sudbury neighborhoods in preventing bed bug infestations, as well as in identifying early signs of bed bug infestations.

Rodent Control

Sudbury, ON Rodent Control Image

Rodents eat practically anything humans eat; they get plenty of food from home gardens, fruit or nut trees and even parts of ornamental shrubs and flowers. These highly adaptable creatures enter new provinces everyday on board ships, trains, and trucks carrying goods. They can also easily enter your home through very small spaces including a hole as small as a quarter. Safeguarding your home against rodents is important and the older the home, the more susceptible it usually is to an infestation. Taking precautionary measures now can save time and money in the long run. If an infestation exists and is left untreated, rodents can cause damage to your home by chewing through electrical wiring and spreading disease through their droppings.

Things to Know:


  • Rats seen during the day are generally socially low-ranked individuals who have been denied access to food by dominant rats during the night.
  • Old World rats are active all year, mostly at night. However, when disturbed (weather change, construction, etc.), hungry, or when living in crowded conditions they are seen at any hour.
  • Food items in household garbage offer a fairly balanced diet and also satisfy their moisture needs.
  • Rodents are often associated with hospitals, healthcare facilities, and restaurants as these businesses produce large amounts of food on a regular basis.

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 Sudbury 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 you with 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 Sudbury homeowners.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Sudbury, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

Sudbury is the major healthcare, retail, financial and educational center for northeastern Ontario, offering something for everyone. With over 300 lakes and an extensive network of biking and hiking trails, Sudbury buzzes with outdoor recreational activities. When the weather is warm, residents and visitors may run into the not so welcome buzz of bees and wasps. Although honeybees and other bees play a positive role in our eco-system, they still strike fear in the hearts of almost everyone. Rational or not, your fears stem from the fact that bees and wasps hurt when they sting and can cause a dangerous reaction for some. A swarm of yellow jackets or wasps can create serious suffering and life-threatening situations for you and your family.

If you think you may have a bee or wasp infestation, Truly Nolen Sudbury can help. Contact us today for an inspection.

Whether you’re dealing with wasps or bees or some other stinging insects, it is important to know the difference between the various wasps and bees. Each variety and situation may have a different elimination protocol and approach to their control.

How to Distinguish the Pollinators from the Predators in the Bee and Wasp World?

  • Honeybees, bumblebees and other pollinators are generally employed in the sole profession of collecting pollen for honey production.
  • These pollinators are more rotund with their round, furry bodies and flat legs for optimal pollen collecting.
  • Pollinators can only sting once, then they die. They usually sting only when they are trying to defend their hive.
  • Their less peaceful cousins, the yellow jackets, wasps and hornets are predators. They prey on flies, roaches and other insects for food.
  • Predators are more streamlined and shiny. Unlike the pollinators, they are able to sting their victims multiple times without the risk of death.

Truly Nolen Services

Once you have discovered a beehive or swarm on your property, let Truly Nolen Sudbury take it from there and keep your family and pets safely inside your home until the threat has been eliminated. We understand your concerns and our professional Truly Nolen technicians are ready to assist at a moment’s notice.

What to Expect from Your Truly Nolen Technician:

  • Thorough inspection of your property. While you are safely inside, your Truly Nolen technician will verify the swarm or nest and evaluate the extent of the infestation. At the same time the specific stinging insect will be identified.
  • Customized plan for your property will be developed. The technician will devise an action plan for your specific situation. Technicians in protective clothing will eradicate your swarm on your Sudbury property.
  • Communicate the outcome and precautionary measures. The technician will communicate the outcome and explain preventive procedures including possible hive or nest removal to eliminate the risk of re-infestation of the hive. You may have “straggler” bees for up to 48 hours after the treatment is completed.

At Truly Nolen Sudbury, we also offer additional bee and wasp services including colony removal and preventative programs for bee reduction that include scout traps and swarm traps.

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Sudbury, ON Spider Control Image

Spiders are everywhere

They come in many different shapes and sizes. Some spiders are dangerous, while others are just annoying. A lot of the time spiders are found outside, but occasionally they can find their way into homes, basements and garages. Although spiders will not damage buildings or structures, their presence is creepy and some spider bites can be painful.

It can actually be quite helpful having some spiders in your home. The insect can reduce infestation from other bugs. A spider’s diet consists of small insects. Sudbury, ON Truly Nolen Pest Control uses advanced techniques to remove spider infestations. Contact us today for an inspection.

Spiders In Your Home

  • Look for spider webs. They can vary in size and shape depending on the species.
  • Not all spiders live in a web. Some live in burrows in crevices.
  • Some spiders are attracted to damp environments such as basements, walls and other damp locations.
  • Spiders can be found in attics, the junction of a wall and ceiling, closets and storage boxes.
  • Their diet consists mainly of other insects like flies and ants. Where you find other insects you might see spiders.

Spiders aren’t so bad.

Although spiders can be creepy, they might not be a terrible thing to have around. Their diets mostly consist of other insects, so they help control insect problems. Spiders can also be a good indicator of larger more serious infestations. Seeing a lot of spiders can mean there’s a lot of food around. You might have an infestation of the insect spiders eat. Just like every other pest, spiders are attracted to a reliable food source.

Truly Nolen Spider Treatment

Moving indoors our professionals do a web wipe followed by targeted treatment to cracks and crevices where spiders like to hide. Insect monitors may be placed in areas with higher spider concentrations.
