I Know I Have A Pest Problem But I’m Not Sure What Pest It Is. How Do I Find Out This Information?
Terminix Canada always tries to make the pest extermination process as simplistic and straightforward as possible. Our Pest Library assists you in identifying what type of pest is infesting your home or business. This valuable resource also offers tactics to help remove pests while preventing future infestations.
If you’ve tried researching the specific pest on our website already, and didn’t find what you’re looking for, locate your nearest Terminix Canada branch and give them a call. Our knowledgeable staff can either identify it over the phone, or arrange a free inspection that will assess the damage and behavioural patterns of the pest. After that, we’ll identify the source and provide recommendations for treatment solutions.
I’ve Been Hearing Sounds In My Attic & Ceiling. What Could Be Up There?
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.
My Current Pest Company Has Had Limited Success. How Does Terminix Canada Get Results?
Pest treatment and pest management truly goes beyond simple pesticide applications. In order to get to the root of the problem, it is essential that thorough pest inspections take place throughout your home or business. An expert like Terminix Canada should always assess damage and problematic areas. They can point out what should be sealed off and what’s making your premises a hotspot for pests.
If your current pest control company has only been using pesticides, you should know they are just a reactive solution. Instead, Terminix Canada provides proactive solutions and Integrated Pest Management that truly gets results. Our teams know that pesticides are only useful when targeting a specific breed of pest. Pesticide use in the wrong situation often leads to pest problems escalating. That’s why we always devise unique pest control plans carefully designed to address your specific infestation.

Are Terminix Canada Pest Control Services Humane?
Rest assured, Terminix Canada practices humane pest control. Since our technicians handle larger species such as bats, opossums, raccoons and skunks, we remove wildlife like this in a safe, humane and environmentally friendly manner.
Our Integrated Pest Management ensures that we can safeguard you and your family from meddlesome animals wherever they turn up. From animal proofing to preventative and emergency wildlife removal, we remove, control and prevent the intrusion of wild animals in and around your home or business by sealing entry points.
Our humane approach to wild animal control leaves virtually no ecological footprint and ensures no stress or harm comes to any animal. Besides, it’s illegal to relocate wildlife in many areas, so our professional wildlife control teams will humanely remove and relocate wildlife in accordance with the law.
How Often Should Pest Treatment Be Done?
In order to prevent future problems, and manage any previous issues, pest control treatment should be applied in your home or business at regular intervals – no longer than twelve months. Shorter periods in between treatments are recommended for properties located in certain environmental conditions. Be sure to contact Terminix Canada in order to get a specific answer for your location. Remember, our Annual Pest Program includes seasonal exterior treatments for your home or business.
Spring – Spring is breeding season for many pest types. We’ll make sure you don’t have an infestation in development.
Summer – Summer heat means pest activity is high. We’ll have your home or businesses’ perimeter secure.
Fall – As temperatures drop, pests seek someplace warm. We’ll make sure your home or businesses’ barrier is ready.
Winter – Pests will be looking for all of the warmth and moisture they can find. We’ll make sure your home or business is protected.
