Old Town is a city in Penobscot County. Abenaki Indians called it Pannawambskek, meaning “where the ledges spread out,” referring to rapids and drops in the river bed. The French established a Jesuit Catholic mission here in the 1680s. Nearly a century later after Great Britain took over French territory following its victory in the Seven Years’ War, the area was settled by English pioneers in 1774. The name Old Town derives from “Indian Old Town”, which was the English name for the largest Penobscot Indian village, now known as Indian Island.
It’s no secret that Old Town has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Head over to the University of Maine’s planetarium. Make sure your camera is charged as you walk the Orono Bog Boardwalk and when you head into Cascade Park. For dinner, we suggest eating outside – even in the winter! – at KANU. Eat inside an “igloo” while you enjoy cherry bourbon pork pops and a Korean fried chicken sandwich. Save room for Aunt Ruth’s blueberry cake and a s’more milkshake! Year round, people flock to Old Town to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Old Town, 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. Old Town 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 Perkins Avenue 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! No matter what pest, any time of the year, our pest control treatments in Old Town can help, including:
