Waterfront & Marina Management

One of the ways that Cottage Country Pest Control is different is in our approach to the lake. We live on the water. We care about the environment. And we will NOT risk damaging fish, wildlife or water quality by spraying over open water.

We will, however, ensure that your boathouse, marina and waterfront areas are treated for spiders... carefully and safely. We take the time to do things right.

Give us a call at (705)534-7863, or, if you're in the Peterborough area, you might prefer (705)742-6245.

Or email

And Another Question - Pets and Pest Control

The other question that people want to know the answer to is whether the products we use are safe for their pets (and kids, of course - but most of the people I have been talking to so far are living up here in cottage country and seem to have more pets than pes... kids).

You will - assuming that you have either (kids or critters) be happy to know that Cottage Country Pest Control makes very sure that the products we use are effective and safe.

We do ask that kids, critters, and anyone with health issues not be present while premises are being sprayed. For example, while spraying outside, we will ask that you keep any dogs inside. When doing interior work, if you will need to make arrangements for your kids and critters, we will make sure you know ahead of the time - and in most cases, that will be only for the length of time it takes to spray. Once it settles, everyone - four-footed or two - can return.

If you have questions about any aspect of the services we offer, please do give us a call, or email

How Many Sprays

Now that I am (pretty much) done school - for the time being - I have been manning the phones a fair bit.

Most frequent question, this week - after price, of course - is how many spider sprays are likely to be needed.

There is some variability in that. In normal years, anyway, "two or three" will often be enough to keep the spiders from taking up residence and ~decorating~ for you... this year, because of the mild winter and very early spring, it is more likely to be three, or even four.

Seasonal discounts are available; give us a call.

And really, don't wait. It is far preferable to treat before the spiders get well established and make a mess. You get better results.

Call us at (705)534-7863, or if you are in the Peterborough area, (705)742-6245.
