A rat infestation is the last thing you want to happen in your house. Rats are destructive and they carry deadly diseases. You don’t want to compromise your family’s health and you also don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars exterminating them.
Bed bugs are tiny, oval-shape, blood-sucking creatures that take refuge in beds. That’s exactly how they get their name. Bed bugs feed on human blood to develop and survive—they must have their regular dose of blood as part of their healthy diet. Humans are not the only victims of bed bugs, they’re known to suck any warm-blooded animals, including chicken, birds, cows, and other farm animals. They’ve been associated with humans for over 3,000 years and are virtually found anywhere in the world.
Rat is a known carrier of diseases. Whether there’s an ongoing infestation or you’re cleaning up after a rat infestation, proper handling and use of protective equipment are required. Rats spread over 35 diseases that can easily spread to humans via contact with their feces, saliva, and urine.
If you’re starting to observe an unusual smell lingering around the house, it’s easy to suspect that there’s a roach infestation. Cockroaches are one of the most common pest infestations that produce a strange smell when there is a large number of them. A cockroach infestation smell is hard to describe but it’s an obvious sign of a cockroach infestation.
Just about everyone has seen in a squirrel. In Toronto and the surrounding areas, red and grey squirrels are the most common. Squirrels are in abundance probably helped by the fact that they produce two litters per year. But the pandemic has brought a new factor into play. Between people working from home and many businesses being shut down, aside from the general lock down, there is less traffic. There are fewer people about. This gives wildlife an edge they didn’t have before and their behavior changes.

Rodents can cause many problems within a home, including contaminating food and creating a fire hazard by chewing through electrical wires. Although rare, rodents can also spread dangerous diseases that can make you and your family sick. Understanding the methods of transmission and making a plan to keep rodents out of your house can help keep your family protected.
Rodents carry many diseases that can be passed to humans, but luckily, most of them are fairly rare. These diseases are transmitted through either direct or indirect contact with rodents. Direct contact may include: touching or breathing in feces or urine, eating contaminated food, handling a carcass, or receiving a bite. Indirect diseases are transmitted by a vector like a flea, tick, or mite.

Wolf Spiders (hogna helluo or tigrosa helluo)
Wolf spiders are hunters. They do not make webs, but instead run down or wait for their prey. They are strong and agile with very good eyesight. Wolf spiders are brown in color with a well defined stripe that runs from the middle of their eyes to their abdomen. The underside of the cephalothorax is black, while the underside of their abdomen may have lighter patches. Wolf spiders are great for eating garden pests, like aphids.
