Set in Hartford County, Southington contains the villages of Marion, Milldale, and Plantsville. Although Southington was formally established as a town in 1779, its roots go back to a much earlier time. Samuel Woodruff, Southington’s first white settler, moved from Farmington to the area then known as “Panthorne” that was settled in 1698 and the land was formerly occupied by the Tunxis or Sepores Indians. The settlement grew, prospered, and came to be known as “South Farmington” and then later, the shortened version, Southington. The town’s most important early visitor was General George Washington, who passed through the town in 1770 on his way to Wethersfield. The Marion section of Southington is one of the most historic places in the town. It’s the site of an encampment by the great French general, Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau, and his troops during the American Revolutionary War. In June 1781, the French troops under Rochambeau’s command left Farmington and marched 13 miles to their eighth camp through Connecticut, near Asa Barnes Tavern in the Marion section of Southington, now the Marion Historic District.
It’s no secret that Southington has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Check out Rogers Orchards. Established in 1809, Rogers Orchards represents eight generations of family fruit growing in Southington. That’s quite a legacy! Don’t miss the Barnes Museum. Within their walls are the lives of three generations of family history dating as early as 1836. Experience the world of the Barnes family through the artifacts, art, and history that defined their lives. And enjoy a flight of beer at Witchdoctor Brewing Company. The name alone makes it fun, but you’ll stay for the amazing brews. Including the I Am Frut. MCU fans will get it. Year round, people flock to Southington to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Southington, 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. Southington 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 Panthorn 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!
