Riverside is a neighborhood in the city of Providence, the capital and most populous city in Rhode Island. Riverside, known as Cedar Grove until 1878, was originally a farming and fishing area. The streets south of the Maze are named for trees. Riverside most notably became a tourist attraction in the late 19th and early 20th century due to the presence of Crescent Park Amusement Park, known as the “Coney Island of the East”. The 50-acre park operated from 1886 until 1979 and was famous for its Rhode Island Shore Dinners, the Alhambra Ballroom, where famous Big Bands played, and the bustling midway which included roller coasters, kiddie land, rides, and games. Although the park in now gone, the famous 1895 Crescent Park Looff Carousel has been preserved and continues to operate every summer. The Carousel is nationally recognized as a true masterpiece of wood sculpture. Originally built as a showcase for prospective buyers, it is the largest and most elaborate of Looff’s works of art.
It’s no secret that Riverside has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Walk the halls and take in the current exhibits at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art. Visit the African elephants, the wallabies, the cheetah, the giant anteater and more at the Roger Williams Park Zoo. Don’t forget to ride the carousel while you’re there! Take in a show at the Providence Performing Arts! After a full day like that, we suggest heading over to Union Bar & Burrito for dinner. The burgers, tacos, and seasonal drinks are worth every calorie! Year round, people flock to Riverside to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Riverside, 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. Riverside 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 Crescent 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!
