Cape Elizabeth is a town in Cumberland County. English explorer Bartholomew Gosnold arrived at Cape Elizabeth in May 1602, during his explorations of what would later be called New England. At the southern tip of the promontory, Richmond Island was visited around 1605 by Samuel de Champlain and was the site of a trading post in 1628. John Smith explored and mapped New England in 1615 and gave names to places mainly based on the names used by Native Americans. When Smith presented his map to King Charles I, he suggested that the king should feel free to change any of the Indian names to English ones. The king made many such changes, but only four survive today, one of which is Cape Elizabeth, which Charles named in honor of his sister, Elizabeth of Bohemia.
It’s no secret that Cape Elizabeth has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Make sure your camera is fully charged and head over to the Head Lighthouse. When visiting the promontory where the lighthouse is located you will notice the waves crashing over an unusual rock formation. They appear to be petrified wood but is quartzite and dark grey phyllite accumulating in alternating layers. From that view, you can see four other working lighthouses in the area. Tour the gorgeous interior and appreciate the architecture of the Victoria Mansion. Taste everything from wine to gin to whiskey at Sweetgrass Winery & Distillery. Don’t fill up, though! You’ll want to save room for dinner at the good table restaurant. The name doesn’t do it justice because the Irish mussels and the haddockwich are so much better than good! Year round, people flock to Cape Elizabeth to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Cape Elizabeth, 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 Pine Tree State, Maine is known for having everything from cities to forests. Cape Elizabeth 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 Scarborough, ME 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 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 wooded areas around Fort Williams 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!
