Winnipeg Canada – GL Pest Control, a leading pest control company based in Winnipeg Canada is today proud to announce the launch of their newly designed website which can be found at https://glpestcontrol.ca.
The new website has been professionally built from the ground up and features logical and straightforward navigation, a clean and modern interface and perhaps most importantly of all has been built to be mobile friendly. A mobile-friendly website dynamically changes depending on the type of device the visitor is using to ensure that the site always displays correctly.

Here is a solid piece of advice from the Winnipeg pest control services of Gilles Lambert Pest Control: Do not disturb a wasp nest! There are several different wasp species. They’re considered to be very beneficial creatures in nature because of their capability of killing other insects that destroy crops. However, wasps do pose an issue for both pets and humans as their potent venom may be life-threatening to anyone who’s allergic to their uncomfortable sting. Like other kinds of creatures in nature, some kinds of wasps are more aggressive than others. Below we list a bit of helpful information to distinguish the difference between them:
Are you on the lookout for commercial pest control or residential pest control services? Don’t worry, because Gilles Lambert Pest Control can take care of you, either way with your Carpenter bee problem. Carpenter bees oftentimes are mistaken for bumble bees due to their similar body colours and shape.
However, these two kinds of bees are very different with the exception that both of them collect nectar and pollen. Bumblebees are docile insects that make their nests inside the ground. They do not usually sting unless someone decides that holding them might be a great idea.
Extermination has traditionally been focused on two axises: prevention and extermination. On the preventive axis, we have all of the things that you can do to avoid pests spawning in the first place: sealing holes in your walls so mice can’t access your food, turning over stagnant water so mosquitos can’t spawn, and all manner of other techniques that you use before pests become a problem. On the extermination axis, we have all the tools to deal with pests who have become a problem: fumigation, traps, heat treatment, and all of the other tools for pest control Winnipeg residents can use. There’s a new axis that has developed recently, though, one with a myriad of philosophical and scientific implications; the CRISPR system.
Humans are fascinated by ants. One reason for this is how irritating they can be; an anthill near your home or a swarm of ants at your picnic can create a host of unpleasant problems, from inconveniences to real damage to your food and health. The other reason we’re so fascinated by ants is that they are social animals whose large group interactions may remind us of our own. Individuals working on artificial intelligence have used the concept of ant swarm intelligence in a lot of pioneering works, and algorithms inspired by ants are so prevalent in computer programming that a whole classification of them is known as “ant colony optimization algorithms”. How smart are ants, and what makes them so smart?
We’ve worked hard to provide pest control Winnipeg can trust. The history of pest control is probably as long as the history of humans, and a lot of different techniques have been developed to limit the impact of pests on human activities. The ways of controlling pests differ based on the kinds of pest you’re looking to control, where they’re located, and what you’re trying to protect. To dive into all of this, it’s important to have an understanding of what pests are.
Pests are any species detrimental to humans. With this broad categorization, plants that we would call weeds can be considered pests, but there’s often a divide; detrimental flora are considered weeds, and detrimental fauna are pests. There are a lot of different factors that can make pests a nuisance, but there are generally three elements that impact the severity of pests: diet, reproduction and disease. Species that will eat any human food can be very harmful to a home, and those that eat specific foods can be harmful to agriculture and other resource gathering activities. Species that reproduce quickly spiral out of control rapidly. Species that carry diseases are likely to cause widespread illness. Combine all three together and you have a very serious pest problem; mice in your home is one example of a pest that meets all three criteria.
There are a variety of methods for dealing with pests. The simplest one is tolerance; let the pests remain and suffer the consequences. While this is simple, it’s by no means recommended, as there can be severe and lasting consequences to the infestation. Deterrence and management are the two most commonly used techniques; quite simply, these techniques involve getting existing pests away from human activity and creating barriers to new pests moving in. The most drastic form of pest management is eradication, which has fallen out of favour due to potential damages to the ecosystem; this involves systematically eliminating a pest species. There is still some potential for eliminating pests using widespread genetic alterations; check out this article on mosquitos and CRISPR for some of the potentially world-changing, ethically divisive work.
Options for pest management are varied and depend on which pest is being controlled. For rodents, traps can be used in order to get rid of the pest without poisoning them, as poison traps can have unintended consequences. For insects, a variety of traps, including traps baited with pheromones, can be used. Larger-scale infestations may require fumigation, a practice in which the area is air-sealed and insecticides are applied.
Techniques for prevention depend on the area they’re being used; elevated rafters, sealed foodstuffs, and even sonic nets can be employed in order to reduce the impact of pests on your home or business. The use of preventive techniques varies pretty drastically depending on what we’re trying to protect. All this to say, if you’ve got pests you need to manage and deter, there’s pest control out there for you; we humans have been at this for millennia!
As some insects die with the leaves when the cold weather hits, some are here to stay amongst the cold Manitoba winters. When the birds fly south and we bundle up inside with our blanket and hot chocolate, insects are also trying to keep warm; and full.
Wintering of Ants
If ants are causing you unnecessary headaches and you figure that the cold weather that’s on it’s way will take care of the issue, think again. As odd as it may seem, ants go into hibernation just as bears would. They try to put on some weight in order to keep themselves warm. They gather and eat large quantities of food before going into the soil for the winter. Deep in the soil is where ants find warmth, and one of the places that they call home during the cold months. Another feasible option for them would be in tree bark. Once the cold weather has passed and spring comes along, they emerge from their hiding place and are back in action, much to the homeowners dismay.
As these little critters live within the parameters of your home during the winter and feed off human blood, they are not going to pack their bags and leave. The temperature in your home that is comfortable for you is comfortable to bed bugs as well. These little critters will reside in the warm and comfort of your home for as long as you allow them, and are very non dependant of the weather.
Similar to bed bugs, cockroaches need the comfort of your home in order to survive the long, cold Manitoba winters. Cockroaches can live without food for one whole month and without any intake of water for one week. That being said, they normally do not stray too far from your kitchen because they’ve got everything that they could possibly need right in front of them.
After having endured the long, cold winter months, summer has finally come around. The last thing you want to be dealing with is unwanted guests in and around your home. There are many simple things that you, as a homeowner, can do in order to maintain control and keep pest away from your home.Continue reading
