Johnston is a town in Providence County. The area was first settled by English settlers in the seventeenth century as a farming community. In 1759 the town officially separated from Providence and was incorporated on March 6, 1759. Johnston was named for the current colonial attorney general, Augustus Johnston. The first house of worship in Johnston opened when the Baptist Meeting House in Belknap was constructed in 1771. During the American Revolution Rhode Island’s only gunpowder mill was constructed in Graniteville, and the town hosted American General John Sullivan for a dinner in 1779 upon his departure from Rhode Island to fight in New York. In 1790 the Belknap School, the first public school in the town, was founded. In 1791 the Providence and Norwich Turnpike (today’s Plainfield Pike) was chartered.
It’s no secret that Johnston has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Sit down for a relaxing wine tasting at Verde Vineyards. Make sure to stop at Rhode Island’s best farm and best garden center (it’s actually voted on and they won) Pezza Farm & Garden Center where it’s currently owned by family-owned and operated by the fourth generation. For dinner, we recommend Pat’s Italian Restaurant. Get the agnolotti and the Rhode Island calamari. You won’t be disappointed. We also suggest the pear martini. Year round, people flock to Johnston to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Johnston, 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 Ocean State, Rhode Island is known for having everything from beaches to cities to forests. Johnston 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 Pawtucket, RI 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 what 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 wood areas around Snake Den State 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!
