Spring brings Spiders

As temperatures take a turn for the better, it is tempting to throw open your windows or screen doors. A bit of fresh air can make the inside of your property feel like a brand new place all together. Once you have opened up those doors and windows, it is hard to close them back up again and pests will use that to their advantage!

Much like people, not all pests are designed to deal with cold temperatures. While some pests simply die off during the first cold snap, others run for cover. Leaving even the slightest opening for entry can invite in some of the trickiest and least liked pests, such as spiders, mice and rats. Once these pests get in, they breed quickly and can be a nightmare to get rid of. Rats, for instance, can squeeze into openings as small as a quarter and can navigate easily through your home or workplace. Mice, as well are able to squeeze into small spaces, gaining entry and spreading out their numbers. These pests run in behind walls and disappear into cupboards and hard to reach places, building nests and growing their populations. Instead of letting these pests take over, call Toodaloo for your pest removal needs.

Spiders might not bring physical threats into your home, but navigating through cobwebs is not exactly fun! You might find these eight-legged intruders in odd places, but once you start seeing signs of rodents, don’t hesitate to call removal experts. Having rats and mice inside your home can lead to illness as well as physical damage to your property. These pests are known to chew through pipes and wires, which can lead to leaks, floods and even electrical fires. If you have noticed chewing, droppings or even heard these pests scurrying around, call Toodaloo!

Spring Showers Bring Stubborn Pests

It might still be winter throughout parts of Canada but from east coast to west coast, moisture is in the air. This type of climate might have a negative impact on the exterior of your space but it can also mean an increase in certain pest populations. Rain showers, snow melt and even condensation can create welcoming environments for cockroaches, termites, carpenter ants and silverfish. Don’t give these insects the run of your home when a safe, effective pest removal service is only one call away!

Increased moisture in an environment benefits pest populations in two ways: by creating comfortable environments and by creating viable food sources. For pests that rely on organic materials for meals or housing, a damp environment is ideal. Termites eat their way through damp materials, making meals of dead or rotting wood outdoors but it does not take them long to make their way indoors. Carpenter ants are also known to initially create their colonies outdoors in downed wood or stumps before chewing highways into your homes interior. While these pests are busy gnawing their way inside, you might already have intruders slithering behind the scenes. Silverfish are some of the most common and destructive pests found across Canada. These pests thrive in 70% humidity or above and will eat your out of house and home, chewing up organic materials day in and day out.

Dealing with dampness and humidity is uncomfortable at the best of times but dealing with the pests that come along with it can be downright torture. Instead of letting these pests have the run of your household, call Toodaloo for your pest removal services. A pest-free home or workplace is only a phone call away!

Spring Cleaning

Winter might seem like it is never ending but Spring is right around the corner. While you were focused on bundling up and keeping warm, chances are that pests in your area had the same idea. As temperatures begin to drop, insects and rodents go off in search of a warm place to call home – and they might just choose yours! If you have noticed increased pest activity or other signs of infestation, let our Toodaloo technicians “spring” into action for your Thunder Bay pest removal.

A good spring cleaning is not limited to getting junk out of the garage or sweeping away cobwebs from corners. There are plenty of areas around your residential or commercial space that act as hotbeds for pest activity. Rats and mice are special examples of this, sneaking around homes, barns, storefronts and anywhere that they can get a break from the cold. As temperatures plummet in the Thunder Bay area, smaller insects such as spiders, and even wasps are known to slip in through windows, doorways, ventilation outlets and even unsealed cracks in foundations or materials. This means that you could be housing pests without even knowing it!

As residents of Thunder Bay make the jump from cold to warm during spring months, pests are waking up to begin their busy season. Elevated rain patterns are also a large draw for those insects that thrive on moisture. You might catch a glimpse of a silverfish but they are nothing compared to what it happening behind the scenes. Carpenter ants, pavement ants, bed bugs and termites become more active but are harder to spot.

Instead of playing guessing games about your pest problems, call Toodaloo at the first sign of trouble. You might spot a bug here or there, see a rodent dropping, find a collection of wings or a pile of sawdust – no matter the sign, grab that phone and call Toodaloo. Our Thunder Bay pest removal services are outfitted to accommodate homes, business, or multi-unit properties, so there is always a solution to your pest problem!
