Pests Common to this Area
Ticks. As most residents and regular vacation visitors know, ticks are an inevitable plague that must be combated with tick control in Augusta, Maine. Wearing heavy clothing with long sleeves and leggings is a good measure, but ticks can still occasionally find their way past such defenses. Given the risk of contracting Lyme disease from an infected tick, many individuals often choose to preempt the problem, particularly during the late spring, summer and early fall seasons, with professional tick control for heavily infested areas such as expanses of bushes and tall grasses near homes and tourist cabins.
Mosquitoes. Still more numerous are the droning masses of mosquitoes that infest the thousands of small, stagnant bodies of water in Maine. These tiny bloodsuckers are annoying enough as it is without the added risk of West Nile Virus, which has appeared in Maine and other states over the past few years, as well as Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). These nasty infections are best avoided by keeping local mosquito populations under control, and Modern Pest Services offers a HomeCare Mosquito Program designed especially for homeowners and others who wish to stay on top of the problem before it becomes unmanageable or hazardous.
Wildlife. Another burden of pest control in Augusta, ME includes the abundant wildlife that find their way into homes and businesses. Raccoons, bats, squirrels and certain species of birds all account for their share of health risks and property damage.
Programs. Our HomeCare Green Program is also effective at managing a wider range of 60 common pests, including carpenter ants, rodents, and stinging insects. Modern’s ecocare commercial pest services also administer pest control to area businesses to deal with birds, mice, rats, flies, cockroaches and bed bugs. While biting, crawling, chewing armies of insufferable and damaging insects such as bedbugs, carpenter ants, fire ants, ticks, mosquitoes, cockroaches, hornets, field mice and other pests, account for sheer numbers.

Boasting numerous nearby lakes, rivers and forests, the greater Augusta area in Central Maine constitutes a beautiful region for hiking, fishing, and kayaking. Augusta is the capital, and home to the Maine State House. It’s also home to Viles Arboretum, a 224-acre park and botanical garden that contains hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing trails. Local colleges include the University of Maine at Augusta, and Colby College and Thomas College in nearby Waterville. Belgrade Lakes, a chain of seven lakes and ponds, is a popular fishing destination 25 minutes from the capital. And just an hour from Augusta are the oceanside towns of Camden, Rockport, and Lincolnville. All three are known for their shopping, dining, and parks. Camden Hills State Park boasts sweeping views of Penobscot Bay, and on clear days, Cadillac Mountain. While the warmth of summer typically attracts the heaviest waves of tourism to the region’s coastal area, residents experience cold and snowy Northeast winters. Winter may be a temporary reprieve from swarming pests that are more active during the warmer months, this is the time when wildlife and rodents may seek the warmth of your home. Also, keep in mind that preventative pest control is beneficial year-round to keep those summer pests from being a problem in the future.
