More About Truly Nolen of Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON

Whitchurch/Stouffville is a fast-growing community located in the Greater Toronto Area’s Regional Municipality of York. Within a five-year period, from 2011 to 2016, it experienced a 21.8% growth in population, making it one of the fastest-growing communities in the region. The ecosystem surrounding it has had a profound effect on the people and plans for the community’s future.

What Is the Area Around Whitchurch/Stouffville Like?

Whitchurch/Stouffville has been known for “country close to the city” since 1993. Thousands of years ago, glaciers shaped the nearby Oak Ridges Moraine, forcing up four elevated wedges from the ground that formed a pair of ridges. This area is ecologically sensitive, so future growth in the area is governed by the Places To Grow Act, the Greenbelt Protection Act, and the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Act of 2001.

What Makes Whitchurch/Stouffville Special?

The earliest piece of European-forged iron ever found in North America, an axehead of presumed Basque origin, was discovered in the area in 2012. In 2017, the longest recorded concert ever took place in Whitchurch/Stouffville, earning the town a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Within the last decade or so, the former Town Hall in Stouffville has been redeveloped into the Lebovic Centre for Arts and Entertainment to address a former performing arts deficit in the town.

What Is Life Like in Whitchurch/Stouffville?

In keeping with the “country close to the city” theme, Whitchurch/Stouffville continues to benefit from the development of an extensive trail system connecting the urban areas with the larger forested areas. Water sports are popular in the area due to a number of kettle lakes left behind by the glacial activity that formed the Oak Ridges Moraine so many centuries ago. Conservation areas in the area include:

  • Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area
  • Whitchurch Conservation Area
  • Pangman Springs Conservation Area

Whitchurch/Stouffville also features a museum that includes five historic structures in addition to the main building, a public library, a public art gallery and studio tour, as well as festivals and fairs year-round.

What Sorts of Pests May Cause Problems in Whitchurch/Stouffville?

Inevitably, a community that is as close to nature as Whitchurch/Stouffville is going to have occasionally run-ins with pests, such as rodents, carpenter ants, and wasps. Mosquitos may be a problem due to the proximity to so many bodies of water.

What Makes Truly Nolen a Good Choice for Pest Control?

Dealing with pests such as these in an ecologically sensitive area can be a challenge. Fortunately, Truly Nolen is aware of the need to preserve precious natural resources. That’s why our innovative treatment protocols use environmentally conscious methods and materials. We care about the area as much as you do because we have been based in Canada for years.

Pest Control

Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON Pest Control Image

There are many small mammals and insects that have adapted to living near and even with humans. Mice, rats, birds and even spiders and bed bugs have found human homes to be warm and comfortable, as well as supplying them with nesting material and food. When these animals welcome themselves into your Whitchurch/ Stouffville home, we at Truly Nolen are ready to help you evict them, once and for all.


How Pests Get In

Small mammals, such as rodents, may find their way into your home via a hole in a window or door screen or squeeze their way in through a crack between the bottom of a door and the frame. Mice in particular are adept at pushing themselves through small spaces, and most can fit through holes smaller than the diameter of a golf ball. Once inside, rodents can cause damage to your home in several ways, including:


  • Chewing up insulation for their nests
  • Gnawing into pet food bags and pantry items
  • Destroying stored attic items, such as furniture

Once rodents get inside they tend to breed quickly, which means you could be dealing with an infestation before you know it. Our pest control technicians can help you identify and discover rodents where they hide and rid your home of the animals and their nests.


Insect and Arachnid Pests

Bees, wasps, bed bugs and spiders can invade your Whitchurch/ Stouffville home and pose a danger to children and pets. Most of these insects can deliver a painful bite or sting, and bed bugs feed on the blood of living beings as they mate and multiply in your carpeting and bedding. Some spiders, like the black widow and the wandering brown recluse, are venomous and can pose a danger to the very young or the elderly. Our pest control technicians can control and eliminate these bugs with treatments that reach even the deepest of hiding places and then offer options for keeping them away year-round.


We Offer a Variety of Services

Whether you have birds nesting in your heating and cooling ducts or carpenter ants invading your kitchen, we at Truly Nolen offer an array of services for pest control. We can identify, target and treat any area of your home, whether you have battled the problem on your own without results or only just discovered the issue.


Rodent, insect and arachnid problems in your home can be both frightening and frustrating, but you do not have to face them alone. Contact us today for treatment options and kick pests to the curb for good.

Carpenter Ant

Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON Carpenter Ant

In terms of wreaking havoc on your home, carpenter ants are one of Canada’s most notorious pests. These large ants chew through wood, creating expansive networks of tunnels and causing expensive structural damage in the process. Thanks to the clandestine nature of their work, carpenter ants are often not discovered until the damage is severe. Early detection and professional pest control are the keys to eradicating a carpenter ant infestation in your Whitchurch/ Stouffville home.


Signs To Watch For

Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not eat wood. Instead, these ants use their powerful jaws to bite and chew wood, which they then spit out. This spit-out wood, called frass, resembles sawdust. If you see frass on your home’s floor, you most likely have at least one carpenter ant colony nesting in your home.


Dead ants that have been cleared from tunnels are another red flag. If a dead ant seems unusually large, it is likely a carpenter ant. Carpenter ants are among the largest ants in North America. They are often around 0.25 inches long, though workers can grow up to 0.5 inches long, and queens can grow up to 1 inch in length.


Common Nesting Locations

Carpenter ants live both indoors and outdoors and operate year-round in Canada. They are especially problematic in the springtime when they search for new nesting sites, and during the winter, when the wood in your home offers a safe, weatherproof nest environment.

Inside your home, carpenter ants will create nests just about anywhere there is wood, including:


  • Wood framing inside walls
  • Moulding and baseboards
  • Trim around doors and windows
  • Inside wooden furniture

That said, carpenter ants need a steady source of water. They prefer to nest in damp or humid areas due to the availability of water and because moist wood is easier for the ants to chew through. Humid areas of your home, such as kitchens, bathrooms, or basements, are favourite locations for carpenter ants. Leaky doors or windows are also especially vulnerable to ant infestations.


The Professional Advantage

Carpenter ants often create multiple nests. These nests are typically hidden from view, making them a challenge for the average homeowner to detect. As a result, they are not easy to eliminate.


Truly Nolen Canada’s experienced professionals will meticulously inspect your home, both inside and out, to identify all nest locations as well as possible entry points. We then create a custom treatment plan for your situation to ensure that these pests are completely removed as quickly and safely as possible.


If you suspect that you have carpenter ants in your home, contact your nearest Truly Nolen Canada location right away to schedule an inspection for your Whitchurch/ Stouffville home.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON Bed Bug Image

A bed bug infestation is a home health crisis that requires immediate action. Truly Nolen Pest Control rids your house of these blood-sucking insects, so that you no longer fear being preyed upon as you sleep. Our full-service bed bug removal and prevention strategies have already helped many residents in Whitchurch/ Stouffville to become free of pests, and can help you too.


Our Safe Process

We base our techniques in the science of insect control and design our methods for use in the home. We know that a home is not just an empty building, so we make sure that our treatments are safe for the people and pets you are trying to protect, as well as for Ontario’s environment. No matter the location, we always start with a home inspection to evaluate your unique living situation.


Once we have determined that the insects inside are indeed bed bugs, we remove them from every nook and cranny. We train our technicians to search places most people would not even look, so that no individual bed bugs remain to reinfest your home. Once removed, we clean up shed exoskeletons, blotches of excrement, and any dead bugs or eggs.


Our Prevention Strategies

It takes only one gravid female laying five eggs a day to fill your home with baby bed bugs, putting you back in the same situation where you began. Trust us to keep in sight your long-term goal of being pest-free, and not to offer a simple quick fix. We evaluate ways bed bugs are entering your home and work with you to keep them out for good.


Our Pest Control Services

During summer and fall, tourists bring bed bugs to Ontario on their luggage, and warm weather allows the cold-blooded insects to be more active in finding new homes. However, your heating system also keeps them biting all winter long. Our four-season pest control services target bed bug behaviour every month of the year, so we are always taking the most appropriate action.


Our Commitment

Whether you see a single bed bug, wake up with mysterious bites on your skin, or know you have a full-fledged infestation, we are committed to providing you with the most effective and safest bed bug control service in the area. Use our online form to schedule an inspection. Your neighbours in the Whitchurch/ Stouffville community rely on us to keep bed bugs out of their homes and you can, too.

Rodent Control

Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON Rodent Control Image

There are many different species of rodents; in fact, roughly 40% of all mammal species belong to the rodent family. In the pest control world, however, the word “rodents” refers almost exclusively to rats and mice, and for good reason: These are the rodents most likely to take up residence in your home in Whitchurch/ Stouffville.


About Rats

In Canada, a rat infestation usually involves either Norway rats or roof rats. Norway rats have shaggy, brown or gray fur with small ears and eyes and blunt noses. They are typically 10-18 inches long including a 4–8-inch tail. Norway rats are burrowers and often live in basements, sewers, and crawlspaces. Their droppings are capsule-shaped and around 0.75 inches long.


Roof rats are smaller than Norway rats: They are usually no more than 10 inches long, including at least a 4–5-inch tail. Roof rats have smooth, black or dark brown fur with pointed noses and proportionally larger eyes and ears than Norway rats. Their droppings are about 0.5 inches long, with pointed ends. Roof rats commonly nest in attics and ceilings.


About Mice

In Canada, the three types of mice that are considered pests are the house mouse, deer mouse, and white-footed mouse. While the house mouse is more prolific, the three have common behavioural tendencies. Mice, significantly smaller than rats, are usually three to four inches long, including their tails. They have pointed noses, large ears, and small eyes. Their droppings are roughly the size of a grain of rice or smaller and pointed at both ends.


Dangers and Signs of Rodent Infestation

All rodents have incisors that grow continuously throughout their lives. They must spend much of their time gnawing and chewing to wear their teeth down. In a household setting, this can mean chewing through electrical wiring and PVC pipes, causing expensive damage and even fires.

Rodents carry a wide variety of diseases. Many of these diseases are easily spread to humans and other animals through the rodents’ feces, urine, and saliva. Rodents also tend to multiply prolifically. Furthermore, rodents tend to cause corollary infestations of ticks, fleas, lice, and other parasites.


Professional Solutions

Truly Nolen Canada has decades of experience handling rodent infestations safely and effectively. If you suspect there are rodents in your home, don’t wait for things to get out of hand. Contact the Truly Nolen Canada location in Whitchurch/ Stouffville today!

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

Avoid unwanted exposure to bees and wasps with the help of your local pest control team in Whitchurch/ Stouffville. At Truly Nolen Canada, we help you safely remove these pests from your property without affecting the local ecosystem. Explore the steps we take to include bee and wasp prevention as part of our integrated pest management strategy.


Our Bee and Wasp Identification Process

We start by inspecting your home and property for signs of bees or wasps. Our technicians determine the species of bee or wasp, which affects the ideal removal steps. The extent of the swarm and the time of year can determine the best way to safely move a colony from your property to a safe area.


June in Ontario is a common time to attempt to move a colony. This time of year is when a new queen has a colony already established, but it’s small enough to be safely moved. Species differences apply. Honey bees are particularly difficult to safely remove. Social wasps can be aggressive when confronted, but solitary wasps tend to avoid confrontation.


Our team also determines whether a nest is active or old. Because wasps don’t reuse nests, an old nest isn’t a sign of a current swarm. We remove old nests and continue to look for signs of an existing one before implementing our control services.


Our Control Services

We communicate with you throughout the process to ensure safe, efficient removal. This can include the elimination of a swarm or a management relocation. We discuss the situation with you to arrive at the best solution for your personal situation.


Whether we determine to eliminate or relocate, your safety is our primary concern. At Truly Nolen Canada, we only use proven techniques and removal strategies that have been successfully implemented in over 30 countries. Our technicians use strategies that don’t rely on harmful chemicals for pet-friendly pest control.


Don’t make separate appointments with separate pest specialists. Your local Truly Nolen team can help you manage bees, wasps and other insects through a comprehensive pest control plan. Year-round prevention of multiple pests is a great investment for your health, safety and home value.

Spider Control

Truly Nolen Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON Spider Control Image

Despite their diet of mainly insects and other pests, spiders can be a nuisance when they live in your home in large numbers. There are a considerable amount of different spider species throughout Whitchurch/ Stouffville, so it’s important to understand the differences before removing spiders from your home. Work with Truly Nolen Canada to identify the type of spiders in your home and create a proven removal strategy.


How Spiders Affect Your Home

Some spider species in your area are poisonous, but these species are rare. Most spiders live in the corners of your rooms and basement or crawl space. Large numbers of spiders can mean a large infestation of insects, so be sure to work with a local technician to identify and remove unwanted arachnids.


In large numbers, spiders can also create a large amount of cobwebs that affect the look of your home. Homeowners with a fear of spiders may also wish to have them removed to restore peace of mind. Even if some spiders aren’t a direct threat to your health, we can help you remove these unwanted guests and keep your home feeling fresh and tidy.


Prevent a Spider Infestation

Our team at Truly Nolen Canada starts by inspecting your entire property for signs of an infestation. Once we determine the amount of spiders and cause of the infestation, we help you implement a defense plan. This plan is personalized to your specific situation, but typically includes some of these tasks:


  • Remove spider webs
  • Organize clutter, like stacks of books and piles of laundry
  • Treat moisture issues
  • Relocate brush, firewood and other items further away from your home
  • Seal cracks around your basement, windows and doors
  • Treat the insect population issue

Some of these steps are easy to perform on your own, but others require professional assistance. Don’t attempt to remove spiders if you aren’t familiar with the species. If you suspect an insect infestation as well as a large number of spiders, turn to Truly Nolen for an integrated pest management solution. We offer year-round removal and prevention services for homeowners in your area.
