Matamoras, Pennsylvania is a modest borough in the NJ-NY-PA Tri-State area. Matamoras is the eastern most municipality in all of Pennsylvania! Originally part of Westfall Township, it was incorporated as a borough in 1905, taking its name from the Mexican city of Matamoras.
Attaching Port Jervis, New York, and this borough is the Mid-Delaware Bridge, also known as the Port Jervis-Matamoras Bridge. This bridge has a very long history that dates back over 150 years! In 1852 the local Milford and Matamoras Railroad demanded that the successful Erie Railroad build a bridge that could carry both freight and traffic. Eighteen years later that very bridge was destroyed, and then rebuilt by Port Jervis businessmen in 1872. In 1875, that bridge was damaged when an upstream ice dam broke apart. This bridge held out until 1903, where it was destroyed by a severe flood. The last iteration came in 1939 when the R.C. Ritz Construction Company built the bridge for a fourth time, where it still stands to this very day.
Pests in Matamoras
Being that Matamoras is covered at every angle by either woods or the river, it makes it a hotbed for pests. Pests will sneak into households and won’t leave until you do something about it. A common pest in this area is the bed bug, which as the name implies, lives mostly in beds. People who have bed bugs say that they will wake up with three bite marks running down their arms, legs, chest, or neck. Bed bugs are one of the most difficult pests to get rid of; they’re very abundant and very tough.

This is the first time I’ve hired services for pest control, but I couldn’t have been happier with the service. Bob (the owner) came to our home to conduct a free and thorough evaluation of our situation. He was prompt, courteous and very patient answer my many questions. He provided a detailed proposal explaining my options and recommended treatment. Bob’s online services made it extremely easy to confirm services without any hassle. Bob’s team all provided the same high level of competence, professionalism and care when answering the phone, scheduling appointments and applying the treatments. Any business owner would do well to model themselves after Masters Pest Control. I would hire Masters Pest Control again without any hesitation and I recommend them to anyone with any pest control problem! Thank you to Bob and his entire team.
