Guilford is a town in New Haven County. It borders Madison, Branford, North Branford, and Durham, and is situated on I-95 and the Connecticut seacoast. Guilford was named after the town of Guildford, in England, the native home of a share of its first settlers. In early maps of the Connecticut Colony, the town is seen on several maps as Gilford. First settled by Europeans in 1639 after a treaty with the “Sachem Squaw” Shaumpishuh, Guilford is considered by some to have the third largest collection of historic homes in New England, with important buildings from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. There are five historic house museums, including Dudley Farm and the Henry Whitfield House (1639), the oldest dwelling house in Connecticut and the oldest stone house built by English settlers in North America. The Comfort Starr House (1695) is one of the oldest wooden framed private dwellings in Connecticut, and one of the few houses remaining of the original signers who settled Guilford.
It’s no secret that Guilford has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Explore the complex history of nearly four centuries at the Henry Whitfield State Museum. Make sure to head over to Bishop’s Orchards for wine, ice cream, a farmer’s market, and seasonal pick your own adventures! Visit the Guilford Art Center, a non-profit organization that inspires and promotes community participation in the visual arts through education, exhibitions, and outreach. Sounds fun to us! After all that, sit down a delicious meal at Ballou’s Restaurant & Wine Bar. May we suggest the maple Dijon beets (trust us on this one) and the savory cheese fondue. Finish with the dessert fondue, of course. Year round, people flock to Guilford to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Guilford, 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. Guilford 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 Chaffinch Island 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!
