Pests don’t scan their keycard on the way in the door, so you’ll never know when they show up at your facility — especially if they’re already inside. Crawling critters are always looking for a way to make themselves at home if your building offers any food, water or shelter. Chances are, it contains a bit of all three.

That’s why it’s important to take preventive measures to keep pests where they belong: outside. Orkin Canada’s exclusion services do just that, using a variety of tools to help fortify your facility at its most vulnerable entry points.

Door Seals

Gaps under doors can make inviting pathways for pests. But door sweeps contain thousands of dense nylon bristles that ensure smaller pests like rats and cockroaches are barred from entry.

Air Curtains

Mounted in doorways and windows, air curtains use high-speed fans to create a powerful wall of air that proves a daunting challenge for flying insects.

Pest-Resistant Sealant

Cracks along floors, walls, baseboards or ceilings can be hard to spot — but if they exist, pests will find them. Orkin Canada uses pest-resistant caulking and sealant to keep crevices sealed.

Rodent Bait Stations

These can be placed around the exterior of the facility to help create a line of defense against rats and mice. Orkin Canada offers locked and anchored, tamper-proof bait stations that protect bait from accidental exposure to other animals or humans.

Insect Lights Traps (ILTS)

Also known as fly lights, these devices are placed around the interior of the facility and use ultraviolet light to attract flying pests to a non-toxic sticky board inside a con ned trap unit.
