Saco is a city in York County. This was territory of the Abenaki tribe whose fortified village was located up the Sokokis Trail at Pequawket (now Fryeburg). There was a settlement at the mouth of the Saco river, with homes and permanent cultivation, at the time of contact with Europeans in the early 1600s. In 1630 the Plymouth Company granted Thomas Lewis and Richard Bonython a charter to establish a town at Saco, with a deed that extended 4 miles along the sea, by 8 miles inland. Settled in 1631 as part of Winter Harbor (as Biddeford Pool was first known). The government of Maine, under Ferdinando Gorges, was based in the town from 1636 to 1653. It would be reorganized in 1653 by the Massachusetts General Court as Saco, which would be renamed Biddeford in 1718.
It’s no secret that Saco has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. During warmer months, make sure to head to Funtown Splashtown U.S.A. for thrill rides, water rides, and even bumper boats! Make your way to Saco River Farms for local meats, fresh produce, and even raw, healthy dog food! Maine is lucky to have several drive-in movie theaters including the Saco Drive-In. For dinner, we suggest Sea Salt Lobster. Who can go anywhere in Maine without getting some Maine lobster? But this place has seafood beyond just the lobster. Clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops – every way you can imagine. They even have amazing fried chicken. It’s a can’t miss. Year round, people flock to Saco to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Saco, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses.

As the Pine Tree State, Maine is known for having everything from cities to forests. Saco 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 Pepperell 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!
