Windham is a city in Cumberland County. The township was granted in 1734 by the Massachusetts General Court to Abraham Howard, Joseph Blaney, and 58 others from Marblehead, Massachusetts. In 1737, New Marblehead Plantation was settled by Captain Thomas Chute. By order of the Massachusetts General Court, a fort was built in spring of 1744 on a hill in the southern part of town near the early center of settlement to offer protection during King George’s War. A 50-foot square blockhouse constructed of 12-inch thick hewn hemlock had an overhanging second story with firing ports and two swivel guns in watch posts on diagonal corners. The blockhouse was surrounded by a stockade wall of 12-inch diameter log posts 16 feet long. The single gate through the stockade wall was covered by a 4.2-inch (11 cm) bore 9-pounder cannon within the blockhouse.
It’s no secret that Windham has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. If you’re there during warmer months, make sure to head over to Seacoast Adventure for mini golf and a zip line. Take a cooking class at Armand’s Kitchen. Make sure your camera is charged as you walk around Sebago Lake, through Hacker’s Hill Preserve, and take in Babbs Covered Bridge. Also walk the halls of UNE Art Galleries. After a full day like that, let someone else take care of dinner for you! We suggest the one of the parmesans (veal, chicken, or eggplant – you can’t go wrong) at Rose’s Italian Restaurant. Year round, people flock to Windham to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Windham, 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. Windham 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 Donnabeth Lippman 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 Windham can help, including:
