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.

Trouble with Carpenter Bees in your area?
Carpenter Bees can be considered a wood destroying insect, and if left alone for long periods of time they cause great damage that may be costly to repair.

We called Masters Pest Control last summer for a bee problem. Customer service is awesome! Adam was so professional. He explained the process of eliminating bees, which was fascinating. We learned a great deal from him. We were so pleased with the job he performed that we set up a service for him to come four times a year. It’s not often you find a company so honest and trustworthy so we recommend Masters Pest Control to everyone.
