Waterford is a town in New London County. It’s named after Waterford, Ireland. The first people emigrated from England in 1637 and came to the New London and Waterford area (at the time, this land was called West Farms). One of the first people who set sail for this area was John Winthrop, Jr. Waterford got its name for its proximity to being in between two rivers. The residents of Waterford resided in wigwams until they dug up plots for 38 houses near the Great Neck area. John Winthrop was given several hundred acres of land, including Millstone Point and Alewife Cove. Various dams, mills, and ponds were constructed in the area. The only expansion of people in the Waterford-New London area were the growth of families and children. Later on, more people immigrated to Waterford, including the Welsh, Italian, Russian, Irish, and Scottish. Waterford finally disbanded from New London on October 8, 1801. This happened after several farmers decided to hold a petition to separate them. The first town meeting was held in November, 1801 to appoint town officials; tax collectors, town surveyors, Fence Viewers, and First Selectman.
It’s no secret that Waterford has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. The whole family will enjoy the Nature’s Art Village where dinosaurs, a genius museum, mini golf, antiques and more come together! After that, swing, climb, and zip through the threes at Tree Trail Adventures. And after working up an appetite there, enjoy some hearty diner food at When Pigs Fly Cafe. Year round, people flock to Waterford to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Waterford, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.

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.

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!
