Historic Wilmington, MA

Wilmington is located in Middlesex County and has a population of 23,000 and counting. First settled in 1665, this town wasn’t officially incorporated until 1730, taken from parts of Woburn, Reading, and Billerica. This vibrant bedroom community is just 40 minutes from the capital of Boston – a straight shot down 93 South.

With high-quality schools, accessibility to major highways, several parks, and plenty of restaurants and shops, Wilmington is a desirable place to live and work. In fact, BusinessWeek once called it one of the most affordable suburbs in the state.

But Wilmington is not immune to the same pests and wildlife that threaten other nearby communities. Your house or place of business may become home to unwanted insects and rodents, such as mice, rats, hornets, wasps, ants, and termites. Or, perhaps wildlife has begun invading the sanctuary of your yard, such as squirrels, bats, raccoons, birds, opossums, gophers, skunks, deer, red and gray foxes, fisher cats and coyotes.

Despite the town’s close proximity to major highways, subdivisions, and business hubs, wildlife is not an uncommon sight here in Wilmington – mostly due to the high concentration of wooded areas.

Interesting facts about some pests in Wilmington

With so many years of experience eradicating pests in Wilmington under our belts, we know a lot about which pests call this place home and how to most effectively get rid of them. 

  • Seasonal pests such as bees, wasps, ticks and mosquitoes, come out in droves in the summer. Beaver, raccoons, squirrels, and bobcats remain active during New England winters. And even though some migrating birds hit the highways when the cold weather descends, there are still many species of nuisance birds that stick around, such as pigeons, woodpeckers, blackbirds and crows.
  • Stinging insects plague Wilmington homes and businesses in warm weather, such as yellow jackets, paper wasps and bald faced hornets. These common aggressive wasps are native to Massachusetts and Wilmington by association, and they can make your backyard parties and gatherings very unpleasant if a hive is left to get out of control.
  • You won’t find many venomous spiders in Massachusetts, unless you run into the rare Northern Black Widow (one of the most venomous spiders in the country). For the most part, you’ll only encounter grass spiders, cellar spiders, wolf spiders and orb weavers in Wilmington.
  • If you have a mouse in the house, it’s most likely a house mouse, deer mouse, or a white-footed mouse. They are nocturnal animals, so you likely won’t see them with your naked eye. You may spot their droppings or hear them in the attic, though.
  • Skunks are most active at night in summer. Baby skunks are born in April and May, which means they start venturing out of their protective dens in mid-June. Beware letting Fido go too far off leash when on your walks after sunset.

Seasonally, we face many challenges here at Best Known Pest Control. Some wildlife species, such as opossums and raccoons, remain active throughout the year and don’t hibernate. Rodents are also a year-round nuisance because they seek shelter in homes when it gets cold. Hornets and wasps are a problem in summer and early fall. The eastern subterranean termite, common to this region, swarms during the day time between the months of March and May.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Pest Control in Wilmington, MA

We get lots of questions from our fan base in Wilmington, but here’s a look at the most common:

When will I see results after my initial pest control treatment?

This varies widely with the type of pest you have, the treatment method, and the product or technique used. For example, spraying a yellow jacket nest and scraping it off the side of your home gives you immediate results. But when it comes to rodents, ants and termites, we use baits that the insects have to eat and carry back to the colony. That takes more time.

I’m buying a home. Do you offer real estate inspections in Wilmington?

We offer VA/FHA Compliant Real Estate Pest Inspections for buyers looking to purchase a home, condo, multifamily or business in Wilmington.

Why should I hire a professional pest control company instead of just doing it on my own?

Hiring a pro will ensure faster, more effective, and longer-lasting results. We have the right tools, products, and techniques to rid you of your problem the first time around. When pest control is approached in a DIY manner, it usually takes a much longer time to get rid of the infestation, if at all. You may end up spending more money and time on this endeavor than if you just hired us in the first place.

Are the treatments you use safe for my family and pets?

Wherever we can, we use eco-friendly products that won’t harm your pets or kids. In cases where we need to use stronger treatment methods, we will advise you of that and let you know areas to avoid.

Who will I speak to when I call?

When you call Best Known Pest Control, you will speak directly with the owner, Brendan Walsh. He will answer all your questions and discuss your pest issue in detail, then determine whether a site inspection is needed before giving you an estimate and scheduling service.
