I have not seen a spider, ant, bee, etc. in my house since I started using Proof Pest Control. The technician is always efficient and unobtrusive. I would definitely recommend them!

This was our second time we used your services. Last year one-time application worked great – we had very few bugs. I hope this year will be the same. The technician was professional and courteous.

Sudbury Geography and Pests

Sudbury Entering SignSudbury is a suburban community located 30 miles west of Boston. When the town was incorporated in 1639, it included most of present-day Wayland and Marlborough. The town’s highest point is Tippling Rock, from which the buildings in downtown Boston can be seen on a clear day.

Although the town includes only 0.3 square miles of water, mosquitoes are a problem for many residents. Many people seek out a Sudbury pest control company to eradicate these pests so that they can enjoy outdoor activities in the summer without being bothered by these common pests. Box elder bugs can also be a reason to call a Sudbury pest control company; these bugs often appear in large numbers and then disappear, only to return again. They can make their way through window seals and infest the interior of your home.

One of Sudbury’s claims to fame is that its postal zip code is 01776, which many residents see as a nod to its role in the Revolutionary War. The Sudbury Historical Society maintains that the assignment of that particular number was a coincidence, but urban legend has it that the postal service was unable to decide whether it should be assigned to Lexington or Concord and chose Sudbury in order to avoid conflict.

Sudbury History and Pests

Sudbury has a rich history that dates back to its incorporation in 1639. During King Philip’s War from 1675 – 1678, Sudbury contributed the most militia of any colonial town. The town’s militia later participated in the Battle of Lexington and Concord in 1775, in which the British Red Coats were surprised by the upstart colonists. The town is home to the historic Wayside Inn, the country’s oldest operating inn, memorialized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s Tales of a Wayside Inn.

Henry Ford purchased the Wayside Inn in 1923. Ford also purchased the Redstone Schoolhouse in Sterling, Mass., which was said to be the inspiration for the nursery rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb. He moved the schoolhouse to the parcel of land on which the Wayside Inn sat and built a picturesque chapel and a grist mill in the same area.

Sudbury retained its rural character until after World War II, at which point rapid population growth and the expansion of industry into the area made it a popular suburban residential area. Raytheon, a major defense contractor, built a research facility in Sudbury, and Digital Equipment Corporation, a pioneer in minicomputers, opened a large plant in nearby Maynard. The town became a popular place for employees of these large companies to raise their families.

The town has a mix of antique homes and new construction, nearly all of which are wood-framed. This makes the area particularly susceptible to carpenter ants, which chew on wood but do not eat it as termites do. These pests are especially fond of old or damp wood, which makes them a problem for Sudbury’s beautiful older homes. Sudbury pest control almost always includes treatment for carpenter ants.

The town is still seeing significant new home construction as property values and demand continue to rise. New construction and renovation often displace mice, which can seek shelter in nearby homes and are very difficult to get rid of once they get into your home. As a local Sudbury exterminator, we have the best methods to rid your home of rodents quickly.
