I used to love seeing squirrels come up and nibble on the feed I'd put out in our bird feeder. Well, let's just say I didn't love seeing them as much when I went up into my attic after hearing some scratching around up there. Turns out I was fully infested and they were everywhere. Trent was amazing and walked me through every process explaining it all before taking action. I couldn't have asked for a better, more personalized experience. He gave me his cell number and was always professional and polite through the entire process. Thanks to Trent and the whole Dr. Critter team.

Davenport is a city in Polk County, Florida, United States. The population was 2,888 at the 2010 census. While the city of Davenport itself is very small, the area north of the city close to Interstate 4 and US 27 is experiencing explosive growth. It is part of the LakelandWinter Haven Metropolitan Statistical Area. The current mayor is Darlene Bradley, who is serving from 2015 to 2017.
The settlement in the area now known as Davenport was established in 1838 when the U.S. military set up Fort Davenport during the Second Seminole War, about 12 miles north of the present site of Davenport. The fort was one of a number built at 20 mile intervals along a trail from Fort Brooke to Fort Mellon. The fort only lasted a few years. The fort was named for Colonel William Davenport, who served as the local U.S. commander in the war. There is no known documentary evidence to support an alternative claim that the city was named for a railroad conductor.
