Spider, Sowbug, Earwig, Millipede, and Centipede Removal in Toronto

Common invaders in Toronto area homes include:


House Centipedes


Quick Facts 101

    • House centipedes live in both Canada and North America.
    • They’re mainly found under stones, boards, sticks, or beneath moist leaf litter and other organic materials outside.
    • They like dark, damp areas, and will hide when disturbed.
    • Inside homes, they are found in damp areas, such as basements, closets, and bathrooms.
    • Moisture sources in and outside of the home must be eliminated to rid your home of centipedes permanently.



Quick Facts 101

    • Requests for millipede control in Toronto are common because millipedes love to live indoors.
    • They are brown to black in colour, have two pairs of legs, and they enjoy organic matter inside and outside of the home.
    • When disturbed, they coil up like pill and sow bugs.
    • When found in the home, they tend to dry up and die when their food sources are no longer available.
    • They’re attracted to homes when the yard is overwatered or too much mulch is used in gardens and flowerbeds.
    • An insect control service can help reduce entry points for these pests.



Quick Facts 101

    • Earwig removal in Toronto is harder because many homeowners are not aware that earwigs are in their home.
    • They move around at night and prefer flowerbeds outside. They might come indoors when they need food or due to severe weather changes.
    • Earwigs are found near water sources, such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens.
    • Earwigs feed on plants and other insects.



Quick Facts 101

    • Sowbugs come from the arthropod family like centipedes and millipedes.
    • They move indoors during spring weather and live off decaying vegetables and other organic materials outside.
    • They tend to live under rocks and debris, and like gardens that have been overwatered or over-mulched.
    • They typically die due to desiccation inside the home.
    • They curl up in a ball for defense or when they die.



Quick Facts 101

    • Spider control in Toronto typically involves Wolf, Cellar, and the ordinary House spider. Some of these spiders are beneficial to your home because they keep out other unwanted pests.
    • Spiders lay eggs in a silken egg sac that forms a ball and is hidden inside the web or underneath a surface. Sometimes the female spider carries eggs.
    • Spiders only live for one season.
    • Spiders are passive hunters and wait for their prey to ensnare itself in their web.
    • They are found in the corners of the home, especially in the ceiling or under furniture that has gone undisturbed.
    • Spiders require a combination of insecticidal spray and physical removal, along with temperature adjustments to prevent them from entering.
    • A professional inspection can identify entry points.

Why Do-It-Yourself Insect Control Does Not Work

When you need spider removal, or you want to eradicate the occasional invader, you might turn to a do-it-yourself method offered at the local hardware store.

Unfortunately, insecticide sprays are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Those that work on arthropods will not necessarily work on spiders. Instead, you need customized services for your spider, millipede, centipede, and earwig removal in Toronto.

Power Pest Control has years of experience removing the occasional invaders.

We know the right combination of insecticidal sprays and where these invaders like to hide. We not only treat the area, we include our warranty program so that if these invaders are spotted again, we will come out and re-treat the area free of charge.
