Pest Control, Exterminator & Wildlife Removal in Roslindale, MA
Serving Suffolk County since 1984
Originally known as “South Street Crossing,” Roslindale picked up its name from John Pierce, a local, who said that the area reminded him of Roslin, Scotland. “Rozzie,” as it is affectionately known by locals, has very ethnically diverse neighborhoods and a resurging local shopping district, after decades of empty storefronts and vandalism.
One noteworthy Roslindale boy is Billy West, the talented voiceover artist responsible for bringing to life the animated characters Ren & Stimpy, Doug Funnie, Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, The Red M&M, Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Popeye, Woody Woodpecker, and Buzz, The Honey Nut Cheerios Bee.
Animated bees like Buzz are not a problem in Roslindale. Real-life bees, and other insects, most certainly are. Insects like carpenter ants.
Carpenter ants are found all over the world, but they are recognized as the number one wood destroying pest in New England and cause more damage to structures than termites. There are several species of these ants that may be infesting and damaging your home. The most common one in the New England area is the black carpenter ant. They grow to ¼” to ½” (0.6-1.3 cm) and are most active at night. They are often mistaken for termites, but the appearance of swarms of black insects with wings is a good indication that you need to find an experienced carpenter ant control or termite extermination service immediately.
