Carpenter Ant

York / Simcoe County, ON Carpenter Ant

Dealing with carpenter ants is no picnic. Their nests are hard to find and the insects can be difficult to exterminate. While spotting and removing these ants isn’t easy, it is possible for those with experience. The professionals at Truly Nolen Pest Control in the York/Simcoe region are trained in locating and controlling ant infestations and here to help you avoid structural devastation now and in the future.

The sighting of a few of these pests unfortunately means many more are likely inside the home or office, causing unseen issues. If you see them during the colder months, these insects are probably nesting somewhere inside. Warmer month sightings could mean the bugs are living both outside and inside the building. These pests can be identified physically by their shiny, black and large (a half-inch or longer) or smaller (a quarter-inch long) and reddish-brown bodies. In general, all carpenter ants have a common physical trait of a round, sleek torso.

While they don’t actually eat wood, these ants can cause havoc by burrowing through the lumber in a building, creating a system of tunnels to nest in and travel through. These tunnels compromise the structural integrity of the space and could endanger those that live or work there. If you suspect you may have nests in your place, search for them at dusk and at night, when the bugs are most active. Better yet, call a professional pest management company and allow trained staff to use their experience and technology to find and remove the insects for you.

How We Contain Carpenter Ants

Our York/Simcoe area team is experienced in finding and containing ant infestations. While generic ant baits are not useful in dealing with carpenter ants, new baits devised to specifically target these pests are proving to be more successful.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen York / Simcoe County, ON Bed Bug Image

Bed bugs are not disease carriers so they do not pose a direct health concern for York / Simcoe County residents. Some individuals can have an allergic reaction to their bites but for most of us, they only cause stress and anxiety leading to sleep deprivation which can indirectly cause health issues.

Things you should know about Bed Bugs

  • Bed bugs continue to be on the rise in Ontario.
  • Your first indication you may have a bed bug problem may come from the bites. Bed bugs inflict multiple bites that usually line up, like the bed bug is walking across your back and every couple of inches takes a blood snack. These small red welts will itch.
  • Bed bugs are really small and flat when they are not engorged with your blood. They are oval shaped and flat reddish brown insects.
  • They are hard to spot since they only come out at night and are small and fast. You are more likely to find their bloodstained trail in the crevices of your mattress long before you spot one in motion.
  • They are resourceful and will hide in your bedroom until you go to sleep. They come out of hiding when your warm body is at rest and you are exhaling carbon dioxide. The warmth combined with the carbon dioxide is like a dinner bell causing them to come out of deep hiding in your mattress, headboard, box springs, almost anywhere in the room to feast on your blood.
  • They are not only found in and around your bed. They will spread to your drapes, and furniture or almost any object they can attach themselves to as their numbers grow.

What should you do if you think you have bed bugs?

Before you panic, make sure that is really the problem. Don’t throw your bed away until you have determined what the problem is and what less drastic measures are available. A big bloodstained, smelly mess on your sheets can be overwhelming but it is not impossible to conquer and a problem best left to professionals. Call Truly Nolen Hamilton for a thorough bed bug inspection, the sooner the better. The inspection will determine if the evidence in your home is from a past or present infestation. Truly Nolen utilizes an integrated pest management system (I.P.M.) essential for bed bug control.

If your Hamilton home does have bed bugs, Truly Nolen’s certified technicians will get your home ready for treatment. This includes removing and bagging items that may have been exposed to bed bugs to prepare them for treatment. Any affected area of your home will also be thoroughly cleaned to remove bed bug eggs.

The actual treatment solution begins with their technicians applying the control material with a (patent pending) high pressure misting system that drives the control material into seams and crevices so that the fabrics are saturated and the bed bugs have nowhere to hide. Everything in the infested room will be treated.

To keep the bed bugs from returning, your Truly Nolen Canada technician will talk to you about encasing your box springs and mattress to seal out new bed bugs and seal in any that are live so they will soon be dead. This gives you an alternative to buying a new bed.

The treated areas will be re-inspected after ten days. If any bed bug activity is found, the area will be re-treated. Truly Nolen’s products will further help control adult bed bugs and prevent bed bugs from hatching. This is important as bed bugs can come back, it is simply too easy for them to hitch a ride on you or your friends clothing, back-pack or almost anything with creases and folds for them to hide in.

Let Truly Nolen Hamilton service technicians show you how to spot a possible infestation. Proactive awareness of a potential problem will help residents in Ainslie Wood, Dundas, Flamborough, Glanbrook, Stoney Creek, Ancaster and other Hamilton neighborhoods identify the early warning signs of further re-infestations.

Call Truly Nolen York / Simcoe County at (289) 842-7208 or schedule a bed bug inspection online to take care of your existing bed bug problem and help prevent re-infestations.

Rodent Control

York / Simcoe County, ON Rodent Control Image

Humans derive no benefits from having most rodents around, but rodents enjoy all sorts of perks. Most notably food, shelter and water, in some cases rodents get so comfortable they decide to reproduce and take over your home. Rats and mice can be a problem in urban, suburban and rural areas as they can survive almost anywhere. York / Simcoe County has everything rodents need to survive, it is densely populated and industrialized meaning lots of shelter and food, being a port city doesn’t hurt either. Port cities are often havens for rodents that harbor disease. Taking precautionary measures to keep your home safe is important, this includes sealing any cracks or openings in your home’s foundation and keeping debris and vegetation from touching your home.

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 York / Simcoe County 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 homeowners in Hamilton, Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and surrounding communities. Call your local Truly Nolen Canada office today to schedule your rodent inspection.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly York / Simcoe County, ON Bee and Wasp Control Image

Bees and wasps are not the same, neither are the best practices for controlling or eliminating them. While wasps tend to have smaller colonies, bees can have colonies with populations close to 100,000. See below for some of the things to look for to distinguish the bees and other pollinators from the yellow jackets, wasps and other predator stinging insects.

Bees vs. Wasps- What is the difference, they all sting.

  • Honeybees, bumblebees and other pollinators are mainly focused on collecting pollen for honey production.
  • These “Pollinators” are stockier than the predators and have round, furry bodies and flat legs for effectively collecting pollen.
  • The good news about pollinators is they can only sting you once before they die and they usually only sting if you are trying to touch or get to close to their hive.
  • Yellow jackets, wasps and hornets are of the “predator” variety, preying on flies, roaches and other insects for food.
  • These “Predators”, on the other hand, are more streamlined and shiny, and built to stab their victims multiple times without fear of death.

What should you do if you discover a beehive or swarm near your house?

It is important to take action quickly, especially if you have small children, or anyone who may have an adverse reaction to a sting. Do not to try to handle this type of situation on your own without proper training and equipment. Contact Truly Nolen of York / Simcoe County for professional bee and wasp control services.

Your Truly Nolen technician will speak with you about your bee or wasp problem and make sure you are safe through the inspection and treatment procedure.

Step One- Truly Nolen will Inspect the Problem

First we begin with your Truly Nolen technician verifying the exact type of stinging insect you have and evaluating the extent of your infestation.

Step Two- Develop a Customized Action Plan

Step Three- Eliminate the bees or wasps

At Truly Nolen York / Simcoe County, 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 York / Simcoe County, ON Spider Control Image

If you have a thriving population of spiders in your York-Simcoe County home, you may wish to consider professional spider removal. However, this may not be necessary for just a few. Most arachnids are shy and just want to be left alone, usually only biting when threatened. Spiders can even be beneficial, helping to control other more troublesome pests.

Nevertheless, the bites of some North American spiders, though usually not life-threatening, can cause severe illness requiring medical treatment. It may be best to keep these eight-legged interlopers out of your home and away from your family in the first place.

There are simple spider control and prevention methods you can undertake yourself. These are most effective when the arachnid population in your house is small, so major infestations can require professional removal.

Prevention

Rather than relying on spider removal once the creatures are present in your home, it can be more effective to prevent them from entering in the first place. Spiders are more likely to pass your home over if it does not have an adequate food supply, which consists of insects. You can discourage spiders from spinning webs outside your home by only using yellow light bulbs outside, which attract fewer insects.

You can also prevent bugs from entering your home by repairing screens on doors and windows, as well as applying weather-stripping. Keep your home clean to avoid attracting insect pests on which spiders feed.

Physical Control

Many species of spiders, though not all, spin webs to catch prey. These are often in out-of-the-way areas, such as behind furniture or appliances. Sweep these areas often and rearrange the furniture every once in a while. This prevents spiders from returning to the same places to spin webs. During the day, spiders may hide inside blankets, clothing, and shoes left on the floor. You can prevent this by putting such articles away.

Because spiders are beneficial, it may be preferable to release them outside rather than killing them when you find them in the house. You can trap them in a glass jar with a stiff piece of paper covering the opening, which you remove when ready to release. You can also use a soft brush to chase a spider out of a window or door if it happens to be nearby.

Options for Spider Removal

Keep in mind that spiders lay hundreds of eggs at a time, so if you see one, there may be more hidden nearby. If the infestation has become unmanageable, consider professional spider control services from Truly Nolen in York-Simcoe County.
