Maynard homeowners can be troubled by mosquitos, particularly near the Assabet River. These bugs are not just an annoyance; they can carry deadly diseases. As a Maynard exterminator, we can help rid your home and yard of these dangerous bugs.

As the cold New England winter approaches, mice can seek a warm place to reproduce, which they do rapidly. They can squeeze into your home through the smallest of spaces and once they’re inside, they don’t like to leave!

Maynard History and Pests

Maynard was incorporated in 1871, having previously been known as Assabet Village. It was named for Amory Maynard, who installed a carpet mill and large dam on the Assabet River in 1947. The Assabet Woolen Mill made the plurality of wool for U.S. military uniforms in the Civil War. The woolen mill later changed ownership and was finally closed in 1950.

In 1957, a small company called Digital Equipment Corporation moved into town. As the technology caught on and the company expanded, it bought the entire mill complex, and Maynard became known as ‘the mini-computer capital of the world.’

Maynard has its share of historic homes which can be plagued by carpenter ants. These big, black ants like to chew on old and damp wood, so you may see them near your deck or patio, regardless of the age of your home. If they get inside, you’ll find them in the kitchen or bathroom.

Boxelder bugs are another pest you may see. You’ll recognize them by their distinctive yellow and red markings and the red stain they leave when squished. They may swarm your home, then disappear quickly but reappear suddenly. They’re very strong and can force their way inside through your window seals.
