Rockport is a city in Knox County. Rockport, or “the River”, was settled in 1769 by Robert Thorndike. Goose River Village (as it was known until 1852) was originally part of the Megunticook Plantation, incorporated in 1791 as Camden. Shipbuilding, ice harvesting, and the manufacture of lime were important early industries. In 1817, three hundred casks of lime were sent to Washington, DC for use in the rebuilding of the United States Capitol, which had been damaged by the British during the War of 1812. In 1852, the citizens of Goose River voted to change their village’s name to Rockport for its rocky terrain. On February 25, 1891, Rockport officially split from Camden because of a dispute over the cost of constructing a bridge. The town of Rockport was born and from Camden it took half the population, three quarters of the land, and most importantly the profitable lime and ice industries.
It’s no secret that Rockport has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Take in a performance at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. Make sure your camera is charged as you visit the many beautiful landmarks in Rockport including Motif Number 1, the Twin Lights on Thatcher’s Island, Rockport Breakwater, and Halibut Point State Park. The pictures you will get will be frame-worthy! And you won’t believe your eyes at The Paper House – where everything is made of newspaper. It’s truly one of the most unique sites you’ll ever see. For dinner, we suggest 18 Central Oyster Bar & Grill for (of course) some of the freshest oysters you’ll ever have but also roasted mussels and BBQ chicken and porcini creamed spinach. Year round, people flock to Rockport to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Rockport, 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. Rockport 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 Cramer 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!
