Posted By: Daniel Mackie
Category: Pest Control
Flea infiltrations in Toronto are less common now than they were in the past due to effective pest control. Toronto residents treat their pets, and for the most part, problems with fleas are not difficult to manage.

If you have nuisance birds that are trying to build nests in your eaves, gables, or soffit and fascia, it can be very tempting to want to do whatever is necessary to get rid of them because of the damage that they are doing to your home.

In such instances, birds can seem no less of a pest than ants, cockroaches, silverfish, and the like. However, be advised that the use of pesticides for bird control is expressly prohibited by law in Toronto and throughout Canada, as is the inhumane killing of birds.

In addition, by waiting, pests that can carry germs and diseases have already infested the home. Often, too, when owners wait until there is a serious issue before calling the exterminators, it takes much longer to eradicate the problem. The best method of pest control is an ongoing approach that prevents any sort of pest problem.
