Nestled in Kittatinny Valley is the town of Newton, New Jersey, surrounded by rural land on every side and providing shopping and supplies for the surrounding area. Home to the Sussex County Historical Society, Newton boasts several museums including the Hill Memorial Museum and Newton Fire Museum.
Not unlike other urban areas, residents of Newton are concerned about bed bugs and rodents. Most people who encounter bed bugs are younger renters, which describes many people in Newton, although bed bugs are a rapidly rising problem that affects many people every year.
Since often people travel from 30 minutes to an hour away to visit Newton, from New York City and surrounding areas, this exacerbates the amount of bed bugs in the city, particularly because bed bugs are so small and can be carried so easily without their host realizing it. Bed bugs can also often go months without food, meaning they travel and last for a long while without a host. Although they were almost eradicated, bed bug populations have risen by almost 50% every year across the world.
Besides bed bugs, rodents are a common problem in the area, living in walls and under floorboards. Vacant houses often act as a breeding ground for rats and mice, with rodents spreading out into neighboring homes when they’ve outgrown the vacant space. Rats, for example, can swim up to a mile, fit into a hole the size of a quarter, and squeeze themselves through a gap ¾ of an inch wide. Given that rats also breed quickly, with 8-12 rats per litter, the problem can get out of hand. Rats and mice also carry diseases, so neither they nor their feces should be handled by anyone other than a professional.

Masters provides excellent termite and small pest control. They have eliminated termites, spiders and other small critters which were in our home when we bought it in 2011. They have been there for us ever since.

Courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, timely. I have recommended Masters to quite a few people. I like that they use organic tick control – and it is very effective.

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.
