Chester is a town in Orange County, New York that was settled in the 1700s by Europeans. A village by the same name was formed in 1892 and is located in what is considered Downtown Historic Chester. This town and village hold the honor of being the birthplace of “Philadelphia Cream Cheese.” Other than this the town is also known for producing Clover Brand, Cow Brand, D’isigny, Fromage De Brie, Neufchatel, Star Brand and World Brand dairy products. The Erie Railroad chose Chester to be one of its stops. Chester’s dairy products soon traveled across New York.
Phil Gregory, a local farmer, prospered greatly because of this. He was able to provide New York City with 240 quarts of milk a day. Which earned the railroad $1.20 in freight charges. This number would eventually increase to 300,000 quarts of milk a day. Which in turn earned the railroad over $1000 in daily profit. Today, this town makes up 25.20 square miles (2.1 of which is the village) of the 839 square miles of Orange County and has a population of around 11,944 (3,957 live in the village).
Pests in Chester
With the amount of dairy being produced, consumed, and shipped from Chester, there is no surprise that a pest problem could arise at any moment. A mouse infestation is one of such problem. Mice are a type of rodent that tend to seek out warm places to live that provide a lot of food. This makes Chester’s dairy farms and factories the ideal spot for these pests to live. These mice will not only eat the products produced at these places but will also cause damage to the location. They tend to chew holes into the buildings as wells spread disease. With that said you are probably wondering how to get these vermin out of your business.
Leaving a mouse trap or two around could lower the amount mice at your location. But this will only help in a small way. Buying a cat could also help out but could cause issues of its own. When all other mouse extermination tricks fail, that is where we at Master Pest Control come in. Our expert rodent control specialists are trained to take out any infestation, no matter the size.

Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Did not try to “over sell” services that were not needed. Called Masters for possible termite sighting (which they pointed out we did not need) but they found carpenter ants in another location of our house which they serviced the next work day. Just serviced yesterday so will defer final comments until we see results.
