All about Tewksbury

Tewksbury is a town in Middlesex County, first settled in 1637 and officially incorporated in 1734. Home to the Shawsheen River, Tewksbury sits just southeast of Lowell and about 21 miles north of Boston. Located in a marshy lowland between the Merrimack and Concord rivers, Tewksbury plays hosts to many industries – mainly manufacturing.

With high-quality schools, accessibility to major highways, several parks, and plenty of restaurants and shops, Tewksbury is a go-to place to set down roots for growing families as well as professionals who want to be close to Boston for their commute but can’t afford the big city prices.  

Tewksbury shares borders with Lowell, Andover, Dracut, Billerica, Wilmington, and Chelmsford. While a great place to live, this community 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, maybe you’ve been playing host to an increasing number of wildlife, such as squirrels, bats, raccoons, birds, opossums, gophers, skunks, deer, red and gray foxes, fisher cats and coyotes.

While Tewksbury may have its share of busy roadways, subdivisions, business hubs, and dense populations, wildlife in all its forms is a common sight here thanks to the many wooded areas that define the community.

Interesting facts about pests in Tewksbury

From spiders to mice, we have seen it all in our years of eradicating pests in Tewksbury. That means we known which pests like to hide out here and we also know the most effective way to get rid of them.

    • · Tewksbury, like the rest of Massachusetts, has a pretty significant gray squirrel population. You’ve probably spotted them all around your property and darting across roads on your way to work. They may seem harmless but they carry diseases such as rabies, Powassan virus and tick fever. They take things a step further and make holes in your home’s exterior so they can gain entry. By extension, this also allows other critters to get inside.
      · Raccoons, woodchucks, skunks and opossums are destructive nuisance pests that can do a number on your property. Because wildlife like these are being forced closer and closer to semi-rural areas like Tewksbury due to the many new housing developments being constructed, you will likely have many more sightings of these critters as the years wear on.
      · Old New England towns like Tewksbury have many older wood structures that entice termites. Problem is, many homeowners don’t know they have an infestation of termites until the integrity of your wood structure has been damaged and compromised. Our pros know how to spot the signs.
      · Bats may be beneficial to the ecosystem because they feast on insects such as mosquitoes, they carry diseases such as rabies, and their droppings can spread respiratory illnesses such as Histoplasmosis.
      · Not all birds are migrating birds that head south when the cold weather hits. Pigeons, woodpeckers, blackbirds and crows stick around all year long, causing a nuisance with their annoying presence and droppings.

We witness firsthand all the seasonal pest challenges that Tewksbury homeowners face each year. Some wildlife species (i.e., opossums and raccoons) don’t hibernate, which means they are active all year long. Rodents are a year-round problem as well, preferring to hide in your home when the temps plummet. Summer belongs to hornets and wasps, while daytime in March and May is when eastern subterranean termites swarm.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    about Pest Control in Tewksbury, MA

    Check out the most common questions we get throughout the year from our beloved Tewksbury clients:

    Why do I need chimney caps and vent covers?

    Chimney caps keep pests and nuisance animals out of your chimney and home, extending the life of your chimney flue. Rainwater can wash out the mortar joints that hold your chimney liner together, which will require costly chimney relining. It’s less expensive to install a chimney cap than a liner. Vent covers bring the same benefits.

    In general, how long can I expect pest control treatment to work?

    This depends on the type of pest involved as well as the extent of the infestation. It will also depend on the type of the treatment, product or technique we use. For example, spraying a yellow jacket nest and scraping it off the side of your home gives you immediate results. But with rodents, ants and termites, we use baits that the insects have to eat and carry back to the colony. This takes more time for them to die.

    Do you offer real estate inspections in Tewksbury for home, condo, multi-family or business purchases?

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

    Why can’t I try to get rid of the pest problem on my own?

    No one’s saying you can’t try, but you probably won’t be successful. This is especially so over the long term or with highly resistant pests such as cockroaches that have been known to survive nuclear blasts. Our experts can ensure faster, more effective, and longer-lasting results thanks to the tools, products, techniques and experience they arrive with. This gives you a higher chance of eradicating the pests in question the first time.

    Do you use safe treatments for my family and pets?

    Yes. In fact, we use eco-friendly products that won’t harm your pets or kids wherever we can. If stronger treatment methods are called for, we will always tell you about it beforehand so you can prepare.

    Who will I speak to when I call?

    When calling us, you will speak directly with the owner, Brendan Walsh. He is here to 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.
