Set in New London County, Ledyard is located along the Thames River. Named for Colonel William Ledyard, slain commander of colonial forces in the Battle of Groton Heights in September 1781, the Town was set off from Groton in 1836 by an act of the Connecticut Legislature. The western section, on the east bank of the Thames River, had been settled in the mid-seventeenth century by Thomas Bayley, John Gager, Robert Allyn, and Robert Stoddard. The settlers were farmers, and the river served as their transportation. Ledyard is among the areas of the United States that was covered by a continental ice sheet during the last ice age. Because of that, Ledyard has its share of interesting glacial geology. The glaciers that covered Ledyard carried the many large boulders that are scattered around the town. The town has set aside land designated as a “Glacial Park,” which consists of a section of end moraine and outwash deposits (containing kettles). This area encompasses a segment of the “Ledyard Moraine” – a clast-supported boulder deposit that is anomalous in nature.
It’s no secret that Ledyard has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Check out the hard cider and fresh product at Holmberg Orchards. Seas the day at the Mystic Aquarium. See what we did there? You can even be part of an exclusive group to go behind the scenes with their African penguins! Sign us up! After all that, have some of the best pizza in Connecticut at Valentino’s Restaurant. If pizza isn’t what you’re craving have an “ultimate” Reuben club at Parke’s Place Family Restaurant. Either way, you can’t go wrong. Year round, people flock to Ledyard to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Ledyard, 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. Ledyard 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 New London, 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 trails around Colonel Ledyard 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!
