Even the cleanest homes and hotels can have bed bugs.

Regular cleaning and upkeep, including vacuuming your mattress, can help prevent any infestations. Cleaning up clutter reduces the number of places bed bugs can reside, too.

Be careful when buying used furniture or clothes. Make sure to inspect the used item, and feel free to ask the retailer if the items were checked for bed bugs. Same idea when bringing home used furniture or clothes from the curb side: these items may be infested with bed bugs!

If you’re traveling, ensure you’re taking the following precautions:

  • Inspect the room and furniture: inspect all cracks and crevices of the mattress and box spring, and look for blood spots or live insects. Request a different room if you find evidence of beg bugs.
  • Protect your luggage: keep all belongings in your luggage and wrap your luggage in plastic to help prevent bed bugs from entering your luggage. Keep luggage on the shelf or away from the floor.
  • Protect the bed: move the bed away from the wall, tuck in all bed sheets and keep blankets from touching the floor.
  • Upon returning home: keep your luggage in an isolated area of your home, such as the garage. Inspect the luggage. Wash all your clothes in the hottest water possible and put them in a hot dryer for 20 minutes.

In order to prevent future problems, and manage any previous issues, pest control treatment should be applied in your home or office at regular intervals – no longer than twelve months.

Shorter periods in between treatments are recommended for properties located in certain environmental conditions, so be sure to contact Terminix Canada in order to get a specific answer for your location.

Terminix Canada always tries to make the pest removal process as simplistic and straightforward as possible. Our Pest Library aids you in identifying what type of pest is infesting your home, office, or work, as well as offering approaches to help remove them, and prevent future outbreaks.

If you’ve tried researching the specific pest on our website already, and didn’t find what you’re looking for, please give us a call at 905-738-6676. Our knowledgeable staff can either identify it over the phone, or arrange a free inspection that will assess the damage and patterns of the pest, identify the source, and provide recommendation for treatment solutions.

If the sounds you are hearing are light scratches and scurrying, either in your ceilings or walls, then the pests in your home are very likely to be mice. There are several ways of treating your home for mice on your own, or you can contact Terminix Canada to quickly treat these rodents and any offspring.

Pest treatment and management truly goes beyond simple pesticide applications. In order to get to the root of the problem, it is essential that an entire, thorough inspection takes place in your facility. Experts should come in, assess damage and problematic areas, pointing out what should be sealed off, and what’s making your premises a hotspot for pests.

Pesticides are a reactive solution – chances are, once you’re seeing pests, the situation is already out of control. Terminix Canada provides proactive solutions, knowing that pesticides are only useful when targeting a specific breed of pest. The use of pesticides in the wrong situation can cause infestations to escalate.

Terminix Canada’s extremely educated staff, exterminators and technicians are versatile, and specialize in a broad range of pest solutions for insects, and even various wildlife and birds.

Terminix Canada prides itself in taking care of your needs – and that extends further than merely removing pests from your home. Certain pests, like cockroaches, have the ability to trigger asthma and various health conditions due to the viruses they carry and transmit.

With Terminix Canada, your health always comes first. With that in mind, our pest solutions are focused on removing any threat to our clients, their families, and health.

Before and after treating your pest problem, Terminix Canada does a diligent and thorough inspection for evidence and warning signs of any lingering pests. We are precise in removing any allergens that pests or wildlife leave behind – from feathers to droppings, we’ll remove it all.
