Peaks Island is the most populous island in Casco Bay. George M. Cohan tried his productions out at the island’s Gem Theater before taking them to Broadway. During World War II, the island was home to a large military defense installation, including the largest structure, Battery Steele, which housed two 16-inch (406-mm) guns. When Battery Steele’s guns were first tested, windows on the opposite side of the island shattered. It is the only island in Casco Bay that allows cars throughout the island due to its size.
It’s no secret that Peaks Island has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Be sure to rent some bikes and bike the island to view the beautify and splendor that is Casco Bay. Visit the 8th Maine Regiment Museum to soak up the history of the area. Make sure your camera is charged because you will get pictures you will want to frame and hang up all year round. For dinner, we suggest the double fried fish sandwich at Jones Landing. Year round, people flock to Peaks Island to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Peaks Island, 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. Peaks Island 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 Trott Littlejohn 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 Peaks Island can help, including:
