Willimantic is a census-designated place located in the town of Windham in Windham County. It is a former city and borough and is currently organized as one of two tax districts within the Town of Windham. Known as “Thread City” for the American Thread Company’s mills along the Willimantic River, it was a center of the textile industry in the 19th century. Originally incorporated as a city in 1893, it entered a period of decline after the Second World War, culminating in the mill’s closure and the city’s reabsorption into the town of Windham in the 1980s. Willimantic was populated by a series of ethnic groups migrating to the city to find work at the mills, originally Western European and French-Canadian immigrants, later Eastern Europeans and Puerto Ricans. Architecturally, it is known for its collection of Victorian-era houses and other buildings in the hill section, the Romanesque Revival town hall and two crossings of the Willimantic River: a footbridge and the “Frog Bridge.”
It’s no secret that Willimantic has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Be sure to visit the Heartstone Farm & Winery for six different kinds of hand-crafted wine. If you’re visiting between May and October, take a stroll through the Willimantic Farmers Market for anything from asparagus to spinach. For dinner, we suggest Stone Row Beer Garden where the cocktail menu is longer than the dinner menu! Year round, people flock to Willimantic to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Willimantic, 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. Willimantic 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 Philip Lauter 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!
