Portland is the largest city in Maine and the seat of Cumberland County. The Greater Portland metropolitan area is home to over half a million people, the 104th-largest metropolitan area in the United States. Portland’s economy relies mostly on the service sector and tourism. The Old Port is known for its nightlife and 19th-century architecture. Marine industry plays an important role in the city’s economy, with an active waterfront that supports fishing and commercial shipping. The Port of Portland is the second-largest tonnage seaport in New England. The city seal depicts a phoenix rising from ashes, a reference to recovery from four devastating fires. Portland was named after the English Isle of Portland, Dorset. In turn, the city of Portland, Oregon was named after Portland, Maine. Bunch of copycats.
It’s no secret that Portland has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Make sure to visit the last remaining observatory in the United States, the Portland Observatory. Take a ferry to Peaks Island and rent a bike – and make sure your camera is charged so you can take home the beauty of the area! Also visit the much-loved Portland landmark, Victoria Mansion. For dinner, you have a lot of choices. Portland has quite the culinary scene! We suggest Fore Street for meats and vegetables cooked over hardwood and apple wood fires. Get the calamari and the half chicken. You won’t be sorry! Year round, people flock to Portland to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Portland, 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. Portland 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 Allen 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!
