Pest Control, Exterminator & Wildlife Removal in Saugus, MA
Serving Essex County since 1984
If there’s ever any question about what a wonderful place Saugus, Massachusetts is, know this: it was the birthplace of William Moulton Marston, who created Wonder Woman. If that’s not wonderful, what is?
Saugus also lays claim to the oldest barber shop in the country: George’s Barber Shop, owned and operated by the same family since 1902.
And speaking of history, Saugus was Saugus twice – first in 1629 and then again in 1815. The original settlement, named for the Native American word meaning “great,” was renamed Lynn and was eventually divided up into Nahant, Swampscott, Lynnfield, Lynn, Wakefield, and Reading. The current Saugus became a town in February 1815, shortly after Lynnfield did.
Did dividing up all that land do anything about the pests that occupied it? No, unfortunately Saugus kept all its pests. Pests like:
If you find a small nest along your roof line, you might be able to use pesticide on it or a broom to knock it down. But if there’s a big nest, don’t even think about it. Remember, unlike bees, wasps can sting over and over again. And if there’s a swarm, you’re in a world of hurt. The Colonial Pest technicians have special gear that will keep them protected while they deal with your wasp problem. So you don’t have to.
If you see little piles of sawdust, mostly around windowsills, it’s likely you’ve got carpenter ants. And if they’re in the wood – not eating it like termites, but tunneling through it – it’s possible they’ve already set up a nest. And if that’s the case, you should call the exterminators at Colonial Pest as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more damage they’ll do to your home.
