All about Concord

Located 20 miles west of Boston, Concord MA was the first inland settlement in Massachusetts in 1635, and was the historic scene of the first battle of the American Revolutionary War in 1775. This birthplace of the nation is where the “shot heard ‘round the world” was fired. Concord is steeped in history, home to the country’s greatest literary and transcendental minds. In fact, authors Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bronson and Louisa Alcott, and Nathaniel Hawthorne all lived and wrote right here in Concord.

As a result, you can visit many historic and cultural resources in the area, such as The Concord Museum, Emerson House, Minuteman National Historic Park, Old North Bridge, and Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Concord is also home to an excellent public school system as well as a variety of private schools.

But despite being an historic, picturesque New England town, Concord has its fair share of the same pests and wildlife that invade other nearby communities. And, as with any other area town, Concord residents and business owners will need to avail themselves of pest control services every now and then. Nuisance insects and rodents, such as mice, rats, hornets, wasps, ants, and termites – or even invasive wildlife, such as squirrels, bats, raccoons, birds, opossums, gophers, skunks, deer, red and gray foxes, fisher cats and coyotes – may seek out the shelter and warmth of your home or business. Don’t let them settle in!

Concord’s vast green and wooded spaces act as havens for wildlife and critters who will seek shelter in your home when the weather gets too cold or they want to breed in peace.

Interesting facts about pests in Concord

Like anywhere else in the area, there are common pests that threaten Concord’s homes and businesses, such as:  
  • Termites: Common in Old New England towns like Concord, termites are drawn to the many older wood structures here. The integrity of your wood structures are often compromised before you even know of their presence, which is why early detection is key.
  • Seasonal pests: hornets, wasps, ticks, and mosquitoes invade in summer, and in the daytime in March and May, eastern subterranean termites swarm. Other pests are around all year long, such as opossums and raccoons, and rodents will burrow their way into your home when temps get cold.
  • Gray squirrels: These furry creatures may look cute and harmless, but they carry diseases such as rabies, Powassan virus and tick fever. They will chew through your home’s exterior to get inside, or squeeze through cracks after jumping onto your roof. These holes provide entry points for other pests as well. 
  • Anopheles mosquitoes: These are very common in Concord, with mosquito season stretching from May to September.
  • Cockroaches: While not as prevalent as other areas of Massachusetts, Concord has a moderate density of cockroaches. The most common species found here in MA are German, American, and Oriental cockroaches.
  • The American carpenter ant: These happen to be the most common ant species in the state, causing costly destruction as they forage, build, and maintain their intricate tunnels and colonies.
  • Deer mice, white-footed mice, and Norway rats: These are all common sights in Acton, and they all transmit Leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, and typhus.
Our experts can handle all these pests and more, no matter what season it is. Call us for a free, in-home estimate and customized home protection plan.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Pest Control in Concord, MA

Our Concord clients are naturally curious, so here’s a look at the most common questions they have for us:
How are pests getting into my Concord home?
There are many ways, and it depends on the pest. Mice, roaches and ants will get in through tiny cracks and crevices in search of food and shelter. Seal all gaps on your exterior, and maintain shrubs, firewood, decorative rocks, and other landscaping regularly. Spiders and ants use trees, shrubs, and gardens to make their way into your windows and cracks in brick siding. Most pests are drawn to moisture, dark and damp areas, and food crumbs.
Do you perform real estate inspections in Concord for home, condo, multi-family or business purchases?
Yes. If you’re thinking of buying a home, condo, multifamily or business in Concord, we will perform VA/FHA Compliant Real Estate Pest Inspections.
Is preventive pest control really necessary?
Absolutely. A preventative plan is the only thing that really works year round, as pests will keep coming back season after season. Ultimately, you want your home to remain protected when they arrive. This is why we encourage customers to sign up for our annual Home Guard Plan.
How fast do treatments work?
Depends on the pest. Removal and spraying of a hornet’s nest under an eave is immediate, but setting bait for termites and ants takes a while as they first have to eat the poison, then bring it back to the colony.
Is DIY pest control treatment worth the hassle?
Sometimes, but we recommend getting professional treatment so you don’t waste your time and energy. Waiting for a DIY treatment to work also gives pests time to multiply, which worsens the scope of the problem. Plus, some pests are highly resistant to DIY treatment, such as cockroaches. Professional treatments are faster, more effective, and longer-lasting thanks to the tools, products, techniques and experience we bring. We give you a higher chance of eradicating pests for good the first time.
When calling Best Known Pest & Wildlife, who will I speak to?
You will speak to our owner, Brendan Walsh. He will start with a phone consultation to determine what the problem is, then determine whether a site inspection is needed before giving you an estimate and scheduling service.

Client testimonials for Concord

Here at Best Known Pest & Wildlife, we value our awesome customers in Concord and surrounding towns! Check out what they think of us:

“Brendan totally solved our mouse problem in one try. Unlike our previous service, which just scattered traps and bait all over the house, Brendan figured out all the ways the mice were getting in and fixed them. After sealing off all the access points, no more mice were caught in the traps, confirming the problem was solved. On top of that, he’s a really nice guy to have around. Thanks for everything!”

– Max A.

“Brendan was awesome to work with. Really cared about his work and my satisfaction. He was honest and able to get rid of my attic mice the first time around.”

– T.H.

“Brendan is a straight up guy, a real gentleman and tells it like it is. I didn’t feel like he was trying to hose me, like other pest control companies who are solely about the money! Plus he’s a veteran and owns his own company! I would recommend him all day long!”

– Nick I.

“Would highly recommend Brendan and BK Pest & Wildlife to anyone in need. I reached out to Brendan needing service and in no time he had squeezed me into his busy schedule. In less than a week we were able to come up with a few options to get rid of any pests in the house. After applying Brendan’s suggestion, I can confidently say that the pest issues are gone! He was prompt, responsive, accommodating and followed up to make sure we were fully satisfied. Thanks again!”

– Marcos A.

“I absolutely recommend Brendan for any unwanted guests. We had a few mice and he came, inspected the house outside to find many entry spots where they were coming in. Brendan quickly sealed up the house from the outside and then set traps inside. The mice were gone within a few days. There has been no sign of any over 2 months and now he came sprayed the foundation for bugs, spiders etc. Brendan is the best in the business and I’m more than willing to spread with everyone he’s the one to call.”

– Roberta C.
