Carpenter Ant

Truly Nolen Halifax, NS Carpenter Ant

Carpenter ants' wood destroying capabilities are a cause for concern in Canada's wooden structures including your home or business. While they do not eat wood, they chew on it carving out galleries. Carpenter ants don't stop there, they also have a sweet tooth and like sugary foods. Keeping them out and controlling their population is essential. Truly Nolen Halifax is prepared to tackle any carpenter ant infestation. Our Four Seasons Pest Control Program covers you from this nuisance pest along with a variety of others. By introducing effective bait products and undetectable liquid products, the carpenter ant population can be controlled.

 

Localized Facts & Advice:

  • The number of carpenter ants is on the rise in Halifax, Nova Scotia and surrounding areas.
  • Halifax is a preferred location for carpenter ants because of the abundant moist wood that is available from leaking windows, damp basements, and where porches or decks meet the house.
  • Older homes and mature neighborhoods are most susceptible to carpenter ant infestations, including neighborhoods with small wood frame semi-detached and row houses built from the mid-1850s to the early 1900s between Gottingen Street and the North Common.
  • Residents of centralized neighborhoods like Halifax west end should be aware that carpenter ants are active year-round and can be found both indoors and outdoors.

 

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 Halifax pest control professional to periodically monitor for the ants.

Bed Bug Control

Truly Nolen Halifax, NS Bed Bug Control Image

Halifax, Nova Scotia is an acclaimed global metropolis, and eastern Canada's center of commerce and politics. With visitors from all over the world traveling to and from Nova Scotia's capital city for business and pleasure alike, Halifax residents are advised to be on the lookout for bed bugs, as the number of infestations continue to rise in Canada and the US. These elusive pests travel on clothing, luggage, furniture and artwork raising concerns for all Halifax neighborhoods from Bedford to Dartmouth and Clayton Park to Cole Harbour.

What's Up with Bed Bugs?

Even though bed bugs pose no threat of disease, their bites can cause ongoing physical discomfort to their human hosts, as well as anxiety and psychological mayhem, leading to sleep disorders and deprivation that can ultimately lead to health issues.

Flat, oval, reddish brown insects, about one half-inch in length, bed bugs, engorged with blood, grow to the size of a small droplet of blood. Nocturnal and fast, bed bugs feed on blood, preferably human. Attracted by warm bodies at rest and our exhalation of carbon dioxide, bed bugs come out of hiding at night and feast on their human hosts, before returning to their hiding places, in mattresses, upholstered headboards, cracks and crevices and on curtains. As their numbers increase, bed bugs can spread to furniture, artwork and walls: any porous object that they can cling to. The first signs of a bed bug issue usually manifests in small, itchy welts on your family's upper extremities.

What To Do

Don't panic. Even though bed bugs make a huge red-spotted mess and cause an unpleasant sweet, musty odor, all is not lost. Don't get carried away and throw out your infested belongings. Difficult, but not impossible to conquer, help is on the way by way of Truly Nolen's I.P.M. (Integrated Pest Management) system.

Most affected items can be treated and/or cleaned.

A thorough Truly Nolen inspection will determine the evidence of past and present infestations. Once detected, the affected area needs to be prepped for treatment. All clutter must be removed from the affected area, and the area thoroughly cleaned. Linens, bedding and curtains must be removed and cleaned. Some items, artwork for example should be cleaned and bagged for treatment.

Truly Nolen's Treatment Solutions

Skilled technicians apply Truly Nolen's patent pending high pressure misting system that drives control components into seams and cracks where bed bugs hide. All mattresses and box springs will be treated, along with any window treatments and upholstered furniture.

Encasement Systems Work

In order to protect and prevent future re-infestation, Truly Nolen Canada recommends installing encasement systems for mattresses and box springs to seal out any future bed bugs, while sealing in existing bed bugs that will die in a few weeks. Encasement systems offer cost-effective alternatives to buying new beds.

Keeping an Eye Out

Treated areas must be inspected after ten days. Technicians using appropriate control actions will monitor your home for any signs of bed bug activity.

Even with Truly Nolen's most diligent and thorough IPM systems, bed bug re-infestation can occur as bed bugs can still enter your home through your guests' clothing and luggage. Truly Nolen's treatment products help prevent bed bug eggs from hatching, and control even adult bed bugs.

Proactive Monitoring

Let Truly Nolen Halifax service technicians show you how to spot a possible infestation. Proactive awareness of a potential problem will help Halifax residents identify early warning signs of further re-infestations.

Call Truly Nolen Halifax at 902-425-7378 or schedule a bed bug inspection online to take care of your existing bed bug problem and help prevent re-infestations.

Rodent Control

Truly Nolen Halifax, NS Rodent Control Image

If you are hearing noises in the attic at night or a light scurrying noise that sounds like it could be in the walls, you could have a rodent infestation in your home. Rodents can cause extensive damage to your home if left untreated. They can gnaw on your electrical wiring, contaminate your food and spread diseases. Their nests and droppings become ideal breeding sites for insects that can also carry disease into your home. Attics, walls, and basements are the perfect environment for rodents to inhabit.

 

Things to Know:

 

  • When homes are left neglected and in poor living conditions, an infestation can affect the whole neighborhood. As residents of a Cole Harbour, N.S. neighborhood have experienced, an abandoned home was the cause of the rat problem in their neighborhood.
  • Rats are found throughout Canada; they are especially aggressive during the cold Canadian winters to escape the weather.
  • Public venues such as hospitals can also be breeding grounds for rodent infestation due to the high volume of people coming in and out.
  • Rodent populations grow quickly and steadily but rats and mice are perhaps most troublesome and potentially damaging in Canadian communities.

 

A successful and effective rodent control strategy typically involves sanitation measures, rodent proofing (exclusion), and population reduction (trapping). 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 Halifax 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 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 Halifax homeowners. Call your local Truly Nolen Canada office today to schedule your rodent inspection.

Bee & Wasp Control

Truly Nolen Halifax, NS Bee and Wasp Control Image

Eco-friendly walks, parks and outdoor venues helped Nova Scotia's center of industry and government earn first place status on the list of "large cities by quality of life." With so much to offer, Halifax buzzes with activity year round. In the warmer months, residents and visitors may encounter another unwelcome buzz of bees and wasps.

Although honeybees and other bees play a major role in our eco-system as pollinators and as nature's pest controllers, bees and wasps can strike fear in our hearts. This usually stems from the fact that bees and wasps can hurt you if you disturb them. A colony of yellow jackets or wasps can go crazy and create serious suffering and life-threatening situations for you, your family and your pets. Wasps and bees in the wrong place at the wrong time, can become serious pests. If you think you may have a bee or wasp infestation, Truly Nolen Halifax can help you. Contact us today for an inspection.

Whether you're dealing with bees, wasps or another stinging insect, it is important to distinguish between the various types since the means of eradicating them varies. While wasps tend to have smaller colonies, bees can have colonies with populations close to 100,000.

The Buzz on Bees and Wasps

  • Yellow jackets, wasps and hornets are predators, preying on flies, roaches and other insects for food and smaller than Honeybees and Bumblebees.
  • The predators are more streamlined and shiny and built to stab their victims many times with their stingers.
  • Honeybees, bumblebees and other pollinators generally are worker bees collecting pollen for honey production.
  • These pollinators are stockier than predators with round, furry bodies and flat legs for efficient pollen collecting.
  • Pollinators only sting once, usually to defend their hive's honey. Once pollinators sting, they die.

Truly Nolen Services

If you discover you have a beehive or see a swarm, first make sure you, your family and pets are inside. Remain calm and contact pest control professionals immediately, do not try to handle the situation on your own. Truly Nolen of Halifax understands your concerns and our professional technicians are trained and ready to assist you at a moment's notice.

Our Truly Nolen technician will speak with you about your observations and come out to inspect the situation.

Truly Nolen Inspection

Your Truly Nolen technician will determine which type of bee or wasp you have and the extent of your infestation. It will be best if your loved ones are inside for both the inspection and the subsequent treatment.

Devise an Action Plan

Truly Nolen will then devise an action plan to eradicate bees or wasps from your property. Each property has different elements that may impact the plan. Truly Nolen technicians will activate the plan to eliminate the swarm or nest from your Halifax County property with your safety in mind.

Communicate the Results

Licensed Truly Nolen technicians will advise you of all actions taken to eradicate the infestation and what you can expect in the 24 to 48 hours immediately following treatment, such as the presence of straggler bees. If there is a hive (minus the insects) on your property, Truly Nolen will then explain to you the preventative measures recommended to make sure the stinging insects do not return.

At Truly Nolen Halifax, 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 Halifax, NS 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. Halifax, NS 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

In controlling large spider problems we begin by securing the interior and exterior of the home. Treating the exterior starts with spot treating around windows, door frames, downspouts and other entry points. 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.
