Windham is part of Cumberland County with a population of over 17,000 residents. It includes the villages of North Windham and South Windham. It was settled in 1735 and granted township two years later. Population levels remained around 2,000 from 1820-1940, but began climbing for 30 years, and then tripled from 1970-2010.

North Windham lies adjacent to Sebago Lake and on the shore of Little Sebago Lake at the junction of US Route 302 and Maine Routes 35 and 115. These lakes attract many visitors for vacations and recreational activities during the summer months.

"I found Green Shield Pest Solutions from a google search and it had some of the best reviews in the area and I know why. They are great! [They] came out right away and assessed our rodent problem and walked us through the plan for the service for the year. Brian was able to find the holes where the mice were getting in and sealed it right away... We haven't noticed any activity so the traps are doing their job! 10/10 would recommend for pest removal needs."

"Joe and Nick have both been to my rental property now. They were both professional and so kind. The office is always so nice when I call as well. We will continue to use them and recommend to others. We have seen a drastic difference in just the first visit in both units and have been reassured that we can call anytime between services if we need anything! HIGHLY recommend this company!"

"Joe was the technician who visited on 8/21 for our quarterly visit primarily established for mice control. Joe provided excellent service. He was polite, pleasant, clearly explained what he was doing and was very thorough. He took the time to carefully inspect the area and identify openings that needed attention and attended to them (this has not been the practice of other technicians who have done quarterly visits, usually they refill the bait and seem to consider their task complete). He also explained the need to add additional equipment given the signs he observed. IMO he deserves a 5 star rating and his service was much appreciated and made me feel as if this is a service worth paying for (there have been times that I have doubted this in the past). Thank you Joe!"

"We are very impressed with Green Shield Pest Solutions! We have used another local exterminator and the inspection alone that Green Shield did was FAR SUPERIOR. Our technician, Joe, was terrific - very professional, great personality and went above and beyond to try to help us with our mouse issue. They are incredibly thorough, and their quarterly services include much more than what we found to be typical of other companies for the same costs. I highly recommend them!"

Tick Pest Control Windham ME Residents Trust

Unfortunately, Maine is home to a large population of ticks. Because of the abundance of trees, most Mainers are not surrounded by picket fences and thousands of houses in close proximity like many metropolitan areas. Most backyards are lined with wooded or brushy areas where ticks like to live. This means if you get close to the woods at any time during the summer, you will most likely encounter ticks.

Ticks can attach themselves to any part of your body or your dog’s body, being especially difficult to spot on dark-colored dogs. Ticks do not move quickly but when they attach themselves to you, it could create a tick infestation inside once the tick reproduces, laying their eggs near baseboards, windows, and the edges of rugs and curtains.

Be sure check you and your loved ones for ticks upon returning home from walking in the woods. Because ticks like areas that are warm and moist, don’t simply glance at your legs and arms but inspect places that collect sweat like under your armits and groin.

Lyme disease is a very real and horrible disease. You should see a doctor right away if you have symptoms such as fever, chills, body aches, headaches, fatigue, or a rash. Early diagnosis is essential to prevent any long-term problems associated with lyme disease.

To control ticks in the places nearby your home, Green Shield Pest Solutions is well-equipped to handle current or potential infestations, providing a barrier of protection around the treeline of your home and targeting landscaping and lawn.

Quality Service For Windham Pest Control

Not to be confused with termites, carpenter ants can also destroy a well-built home, seriously impacting its structural integrity. It’s a great idea to familiarize yourself with the difference between a carpenter ant, house ant, or pavement ant so that you are able to take action if needed.

So, let’s identify one. Carpenter ants measure up to a half-inch, and though they have gray or yellowish hairs, the basic black color is still obvious (except on red carpenter ants, which are smaller at about ¼ inch).

One of the best ways to identify a carpenter ant as opposed to a house ant of pavement ant is by the petiole, the nodes (or bumps) that connect the thorax and abdomen (2nd and 3rd parts). As you can see in the picture above, carpenter ants have one node. Pavement ants have two and house ants have one which is hidden by the abdomen (looking like they have none). See the carpenter ant guide here for more information on identification and treatment.
