Masters Pest Control provides Pike County, PA residents with exceptional pest control customized to their environment. Our knowledgeable technicians and staff are well-versed in identifying and removing northeastern Pennsylvania’s common household and garden pests.
Pike County remains one of Pennsylvania’s seven completely rural counties. Its forests are home to an abundance of wildlife, including several pest varieties. Mosquitos, ants, and termites are just some of the critters that populate the region’s hilly woods and wetlands. As the seasons change, homeowners throughout Pike County are likely to see the telltale signs of pests.
At Masters Pest Control, we have over 35 years of experience providing pest control services in Pike County, Pennsylvania. We know the pests common to the region’s varied environments and seasons. Here are some of the pests we treat in different communities across the county.
Milford, PA: Milford, the County seat of Pike County, is nestled between wooded, sloping hills and the Delaware river. Given the surrounding rural area, Milford residents encounter spiders, ants (especially carpenter ants), termites, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and mice. I will often say to folks in the area that are concerned with carpenter ants that “finding carpenter ants in Pike County is like finding leaves.”
Matamoras, PA: Like Milford, woods border Matamoras borough to the south and the west. The Delaware River runs along the north and east, however, bringing with its flowing waters different kinds of pests. Termites and carpenter ants are a particularly common household pest in Matamoras. River basin soil and lots of trees make for perfect conditions for wood damaging pests.
Dingmans Ferry, PA: Dingmans Ferry is in the heavily forested area of Delaware Township, which runs along the Delaware River separating Pennsylvania from New Jersey. Given the region’s woodlands, carpenter ants and termites are a frequent threat to homes. Make no mistake that there is no shortage of mice, ticks, and stinging insects in Dingmans Ferry too.
Hemlock Farms, PA: Situated in Lords Valley, Pennsylvania, Hemlock Farms features sprawling woods and peaceful lakes. The forested area provides ample ground for fleas and ticks to multiply. Though small, these pests pose a risk to both residents and pets if they find a way into the home. Stinging insects like yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps also pose a threat in Hemlock Farms. Less of a risk to people, termites and carpenter ants can be a significant risk to homes in Hemlock.
Shohola, and the surrounding area is the rural setting for those that like to be in touch with nature. This picturesque countryside community offers peace and tranquility, but it comes with a cost, and that cost is greater exposure to wood damaging insects like carpenter ants and termites, and household pests like mice and spiders.
We know there is nothing more tranquil than the sound of nature beyond your front door. Still, there may come a day when nature’s pests cross your threshold. If and when pests enter your home, call Masters Pest Control. Our exterminators are polite, friendly, and experienced in treating Pike County’s household and garden pests. We are happy to answer your questions and will proudly treat your home as our own!

We have been with Masters approximately 10 years. We get the year around service package, 4 visits with any follow ups we may need. They have always been responsive, professional and pleasant.
Carla & Don S. – Shohola, PA
We called Master’s because we regularly had mice in our basement. The initial inspection seemed thorough, the technician knowledgeable, and everything was explained. We have been happy with the service so far; it was money well spent. We would definitely use Master’s again.

We have used Masters before for an interior Borate treatment and chose them again for a termite monitoring program. Their employees are professional and knowledgeable and their office staff is pleasant to work with.
