Our goal is to help the community protect their property from pests through our full suite of removal and preventative services. A community-focused company, Truly Nolen understands the unique attributes of each area we serve so we best provide our services to our neighbors, their neighbors, and everyone in the area who stands to benefit from keeping pests away from their property.

The Local Community

Vaughan’s growth speaks to the alluring aspects of its community. Its population has doubled since the early 1990s, which has, in turn, drawn businesses, non-profits, and other organizations to the city. The growth of the area has also made it a centre of innovation and new construction.

This innovation and growth are perhaps best reflected by the Cortelluci Hospital, the first full-service hospital within city limits. The hospital is expected to include a fully integrated technology system that allows medical devices to communicate with each other. This smart system will serve as the first one of its kind in the country.

Vaughan is truly a diverse community populated with caring people. The city offers itself as a great place to grow a family, establish your business, or even visit as a tourist. Its attractions run the gamut from shopping destinations, entertainment options, and outdoor spaces. All of these characteristics make us at the local Truly Nolen proud to serve this special community.

Pests of Vaughan

One of the things that most draws people to Vaughan is the abundant outdoor space. Parks, trails, and conservation areas dot the landscape and give the residents of Vaughan places to retreat from the urban landscape and soak up the surrounding nature.

However, nothing is perfect, and while the benefits to living so close to these natural spaces are real, the proximity of nature also invites the opportunity for pests to establish residence on your property or inside your home.
Residents and business owners should keep an eye out for the pests most commonly found in the area:

Our Pest Control Services

At Truly Nolen, our goal is to remove pests from our property swiftly and effectively then prevent them from returning.

Carpenter Ant

Vaughan, ON Carpenter Ant

Vaughan is one of the largest cities in Canada. Home to more than 300,000 people, the beautiful city north of Toronto is also home to many common household pests, including carpenter ants. Carpenter ants are among the most destructive pests you could have in your home. Often confused with termites, these unwelcome guests burrow deep into wooden structures and can cause thousands of dollars worth of structural damage to your home if left untreated.


Many people try to take matters into their own hands to get rid of carpenter ants but resolving this issue is often complicated and requires the help of a professional. If you think your home is harbouring a colony of carpenter ants, call the experts at Truly Nolen to remove the pests and keep them from coming back.


How To Know You Have Carpenter Ants

Unlike termites, carpenter ants burrow into and remove wood rather than eat it. They are attracted to damp wood, so any home with a moisture leak is a prime environment for a carpenter ant colony. While they sometimes enter the home from its foundation, these pests are also known to use low-hanging tree limbs as a bridge to the roof of the house. If you notice any f the following signs, you could have a carpenter ant infestation.


  • Rustling noises: Sometimes you can hear carpenter ants chewing through the wood inside the walls.
    Swarming ants: Winged ants indicate a mature colony that is ready to establish additional colonies.
  • Debris: Because carpenter ants don’t eat wood, you may start to notice small piles of rough wood shavings throughout your home from where the ants burrow into the wood.
  • Worker ants: Carpenter ants feed on hum and pet food as well as other insects so if you see ants foraging for food in your kitchen and can’t find a trail leading outside, you may have carpenter ants inside your home.


How Truly Nolen Gets Rid of Carpenter Ants

Once we have found carpenter ants within your home, we will remove them by seeking out the initial colony. By treating the entire nest with high-quality chemicals before removing it, we eliminate all of the ants instead of temporarily getting rid of visible pests. We’ll then determine the point of entry and fix it so ants don’t return to your home.


To avoid racking up expensive bills to repair structural damage, you need to seek professional help immediately if you think you have a carpenter ant infestation. The expert technicians at Truly Nolen have the experience and tools necessary to rid your home of the pests that are native to the Regional Municipality of York so you don’t have to worry about them damaging your home. Contact us today to let us take care of the carpenter ants in your home.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Vaughan, ON Bed Bug Image

Nestled in the middle of Ontario, Canada, just north of Toronto is a thriving city named Vaughan. Boasting more than 300,000 residents, this busy city is one of the largest in the country. Many people, animals and insects call this beautiful region home. Unfortunately, some of these inhabitants are common pests you don’t want to share a home with, such as bedbugs. These tiny pests are notorious hitchhikers and can infiltrate even the cleanest homes. Because they’re so small and are active primarily at night, many people don’t know they have a bed bug problem until they are dealing with a full-blown infestation that requires professional intervention. As one of the top pest control companies in Canada, Truly Nolen can get rid of bedbugs quickly and efficiently so you can stop worrying about having these pests in your home.


Signs You Have Bedbugs in Your Home

Bedbugs reproduce quickly so having a few of the pests inside your home can turn into an infestation in just a few weeks. You may not notice them at first because young bedbugs are translucent. Once the pests start feeding on humans, however, they turn a reddish-brown color that makes them recognizable. Any of the following signs could indicate that you have a bedbug infestation in your home.


  • Bite marks: If you or anyone in your family starts waking up in the morning with small, itchy bites in a circular pattern, you may have bedbugs.
  • Red stains on sheets: Bedbugs are often crushed at night when you move in your sleep, so if you notice smears of blood on your sheets, you may have a problem with the pests.
  • Eggs: Bedbug eggs are small, about the size of a pinpoint, but they often come in small clusters that are noticeable.
  • Dead skin: Bedbugs shed dead skin as they grow so you may see exoskeletons on your sheets if the pests are present.


Steps We Take To Remove Bedbugs

Although bedbugs are typically not dangerous, they are nuisances and leave itchy bites all over your arms and legs so you want them gone as quickly as possible. For maximum results, the experts at Truly Nolen use a multi-pronged approach to getting rid of the pests. We’ll use state-of-the-art equipment to heat up infested rooms to create environments that will kill bedbugs. We then spray any infested materials with insecticide and help you declutter the space so you can be sure the problem is thoroughly taken care of.


At Truly Nolen in Vaughan, we take bedbug infestations seriously. We understand that you want to rid your home of these unwanted guests as quickly as possible, so we respond immediately when you call. Our expert technicians are ready to implement mitigation procedures to rid your home of bedbugs, so contact us today!

Rodent Control

Vaughan, ON Rodent Control Image

Most rodents that live in Ontario are content to live outdoors. You might occasionally see porcupines, chipmunks, ground squirrels, and beavers pose for pictures or grace the fonts of postcards, but you don’t have to worry about them coming into your Vaughan home. Not all of them are so innocuous, however.


Common Rodent Pests in Ontario

Of the 68 types of rodents that inhabit Canada, none have worse reputations than these five species of mice and rats.

With 13 species of mice known throughout Canada, they are quite common. However, only the deer mouse (Peromyscus keeni), house or field mouse (Mus musculus), and white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus) are known to be household pests in Vaughan. All three thrive in natural areas, but will gladly move into your home if given the opportunity.


While Canada does not have any native rats, two main species now call it home. Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) dig tunnels around homes and buildings and tend to stay close to the ground. You may hear them called wharf or brown rats. Roof rats (Rattus rattus) are climbers who will enter a home through the attic. Also called black rats, they are known to nest in attics and the upper floors of homes.


Why You Don’t Want Rodents in Your Home

Rodents can carry and transmit diseases, particularly through their droppings. So, before you dismiss these diminutive pests, consider the possibility that they may be spreading disease. Mice have been known to transmit rickettsialpox, leptospirosis, Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis, just to name a few. Rats can carry typhus, Weil’s disease, toxoplasmosis, salmonella, leptospirosis, and trichinosis. All reasons why not to try and take matters into your own hands if you suspect you have a rodent problem in your home.


Signs You Have a Problem

One small mouse may not seem like a big problem, but a single female rat can have a new litter of up to 12 babies every two months. Mice are even more prolific. If you see these signs that rodents are living in your house, take action right away:


  • Piles of droppings
  • Torn or shredding nesting material
  • Scratching or clawing noises in the walls or attic
  • Burrows along the outside of your home

We will locate and remove the nest, while also developing a plan to keep these unwanted pests out of your home in the future. Call today for a free estimate.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Vaughan, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

Bees and wasps can be helpful in that they are excellent pollinators, they help recycle organic material, and they control many other types of harmful insects. However, they can also become a nuisance. That makes it important to know what type of bee or wasp you are dealing with. Vaughan area bees and wasps have many similarities, but they also have differences that can help you identify what type is in your home or yard.


Bees and Wasps in and Around Vaughan

More than 400 different types of bees call Ontario home. Bees are classified as solitary or social, depending on whether they live alone or in large colonies. While most have the classic black and yellow colour pattern, some can also be completely black or even green. To spot a beehive around your home, you not only need to look for the classic beehive appearance, but they can also nest in holes which they seal with mud.


There are some differences between bees and wasps. Wasps tend to be more slender at the waist and are commonly black and yellow, but just like bees have also been spotted in other colours. Only a few types of wasps live in holes. The majority of wasps make nests that are commonly seen hanging in trees or overhanging structures.


Bee and Wasp Life Cycles

Wasps and bees tend to be active from late spring to early fall, when they build their nests, tend to and raise larvae and forage for food and water. Once the cold weather sets in, any adults left in the nest will abandon it and the adults die off. Wasp queens hibernate underground or in sheds and garages, while honeybees remain active all year long.


Wasps tend to become aggressive in the early fall when their diets change and they must seek out their own food once the larvae in the nest mature. This is when you might notice them hovering around soda cans and other sweet foods. No matter the time of year you experience a bee or wasp problem, we at Truly Nolen can help.


How To Get Rid of Bees and Wasps for Good

You should never try to get rid of a wasp or bee nest. They might sting when provoked, and destroying their home is definitely cause to activate the defense systems. Considering that there could be hundreds of insects living inside, that’s a lot of stings to contend with. Instead, contact the pest removal professionals at your local Truly Nolan location. Our technicians have the training and equipment to safely remove nests from your Vaughan home.

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Vaughan, ON Spider Control Image

Vaughan and the surrounding areas are home to myriad types of spiders. While that may seem disheartening, you should remember that most of them pose much more of a nuisance than a danger. Most spiders found throughout Ontario pose no risk to humans thanks to their small and relatively harmless fangs. That doesn’t mean you want them moving into your home. A sound pest control plan can help keep wolf, cellar, and common house spiders — the three most common spiders — from settling in.


Types of Spider Found In Vaughn

Perhaps one of the most alarming looking spiders is the wolf spider. This type of spider likes debris and dark spaces, like your attic, garage, and basement. Keep these areas free from leaves, firewood, mulch, and other debris to avoid attracting them. Wolf spiders don’t make webs, so vacuuming rooms frequently is one of your best defenses.


Cellar spiders are commonly found in the basement, and one of the reasons you might avoid going into that space. Luckily, there are some things you can do to discourage cellar spiders from settling in. These spiders will make webs to keep their egg sacs. Regularly clearing these webs with a vacuum or broom will make your basement much less inviting. Sealing cracks and gaps around windows and doors and using a dehumidifier or ventilation fans to lower humidity levels will also help get rid of these common nuisance pests.


Common house spiders also make webs, so try to keep them cleared to discourage an infestation. Monthly vacuuming is usually enough to do the trick. If there are any holes in window screens, patching or replacing them removes an easy entryway for spider pests.
