  • Ants

Ant control in Halifax

Ants are one of the more common nuisance pests found in Halifax homes and businesses. Additionally, certain ant species are known to be destructive by building their nests inside wood, weakening timbers in buildings and causing costly damage to property owners. Rentokil has a team of experienced and skilled ant experts equipped with a  range of powerful insecticides to deal with ants in your home or business effectively.

Halifax bed bug control

Bed bugs survive by feeding on the warm blood of mammals and have a strong taste for human blood. These tiny blood sucking pests hide in the creases of mattresses, cracks in bed posts, in carpeting, and other upholstered furniture. The parasitic insects have even been found behind picture frames and inside electrical sockets.

Rentokil has a team of bed bug control specialists located in the Halifax, Nova Scotia, area. If you have an issue, we can get to your home or business quickly. Our licensed specialists use the latest solutions to identify bed bug hiding spots. We perform heat treatments to eliminate the pests during any life stage. Rentokil’s Halifax bed bug specialists are ready to protect your business and your family from bed bug infestations. Contact our experts today or call us at 902-835-2304.

Mouse control in Halifax

Mice are a major issue for homes and businesses in Halifax. In the colder months, they chew their way through walls and find warm places in basements and attics to set up a nest, breed and multiply. If an infestation is left unchecked, rodents inflict untold damage to a home or building. An infestation of mice can be devastating to a business and damage their reputation.

Our trained specialists will crawl into crawlspaces, attics and all those hard-to-reach places to inspect the property to find out where the mice are getting in and how to stop them from returning. Count on Rentokil to stay mice-free by scheduling an inspection with a local specialist today.

Tick control

Concerned about ticks? Rentokil's tick control service is designed to create a tick-free barrier around your property. Blacklegged ticks (which are found throughout Nova Scotia) can transmit Lyme disease to humans. Properties surrounded by heavily wooded areas are at greater risk for tick bites. Rely on Rentokil to stay tick-free by scheduling an inspection with a local specialist today.

European fire ants

In recent years, European fire ants have been identified in Nova Scotia. A invasive ant species that will readily sting humans, European fire ants can become a nuisance. If you're concerned that your property may be infested by European fire ants, a Rentokil specialist can inspect your property and properly identify the species of ant.

Question & answer

  • Which pests are people most likely to encounter in Halifax?

    Mice, rats and ants are common in Halifax, as well as bed bugs and cockroaches (like the German cockroach). None of these pests are desirable, as rodents can spread disease and ants are a great annoyance. Cockroaches yield allergens and also typically spend time in unclean locations, whereas bed bugs can spread from room to room in a building. If you’re dealing with an infestation of any of these pests, you should seek help as soon as possible to stop the issue before it worsens.

  • How much does it cost to get pest control?

    This is a good question, and it is hard to give a short answer. The cost of pest control can vary depending on what kind of pest is causing the problem, what sort of treatment we use, and how large your property is - as well as other factors. To understand better the price of pest control for your particular problem, contact us to set up an inspection at your property in Halifax so we can understand your issue better. That way, we will be able to provide you with an idea of how much treatment will cost.


  • What is the best way to prevent a pest infestation?

    No one welcomes a pest infestation in their home or business. The good news is, you can take some steps to prevent pests from getting into your property.

    • Trim your lawn and keep plants from being too close to the structure, so pests have fewer places to hide.
    • Do not store wood close to your building, as carpenter ants, mice and rats can use the wood for refuge.
    • Store your garbage in receptacles that insects and animals cannot open.
    • Keep sources of water away from your structure.
    • Apply caulk to openings at your property, as pests could enter at those locations. Ensure your windows are screened.

  • How do I get rid of rats?

    As rats are commonly encountered in Halifax, you may find them at your property. Rats are more than a nuisance on your premises; they can actually damage property through their gnawing (potentially even causing fires) and can spread disease. Under no circumstances should they be allowed to reproduce at your Halifax business or home.

    Although you may try to eliminate rats on your own, we advise getting in touch with a rat control professional for the best odds of completely eradicating the rats. Rentokil is your best local option for getting rid of rats in Halifax. We will do away with the rats and can help you keep them from coming back. Contact us about your rat problem today.
