Derby is a city in New Haven County, approximately 8 miles west-northwest of New Haven. It’s in southwest Connecticut at the confluence of the Housatonic and Naugatuck Rivers. Derby was settled in 1642 as an Indian trading post under the name Paugasset. It was named after Derby, England, in 1675. Derby is home to the first electric trolley system in New England, only the second in the United States. It is also home to the first electric locomotive in U.S. history to be built and successfully used commercially for hauling freight. The locomotive, built in 1888, is still kept in running condition.
It’s no secret that Derby has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Visit the oldest continuously running suburban trolley line in the United States and the locomotive we mentioned above at The Shore Line Trolley Museum. Take in the beautiful scenery as well as the wines at Jones Family Farms. Do drop in to the Dew Drop Inn. I think we just figured out the name. With three pages of wing choices, we wouldn’t tell you to get anything else there. Year round, people flock to Derby to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Derby, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.

As the Constitution State, Connecticut is known for having everything from beaches to cities to forests. Derby is no exception. Warm, moist summers give way to cold winters, which means over-wintering insects, rodents, and other small wildlife need to find warm places to wait out the cold. The local extermination experts at our Milford, CT branch are used to dealing with mice, carpenter ants, bed bugs, termites, mosquitoes, ticks – and even the occasional cheeky raccoon or hiding bat. No matter the season, your pest control service needs will be taken care of by a local exterminator that knows the area and the pests that are common to it. In the summer, they know what that the ponds and birdbaths many people have around their homes can be exactly where mosquitoes like to breed. They know that the ticks that come out during the summer months can transmit Lyme disease so while nobody can help the wood areas around Osbornedale State Park, they can help your backyard stay free from them. In the cooler months, they know mice can try to make their way into your garage – especially if that’s where you keep the 20 lb. bag of dog food!
