Vernon is a wooded region is northeastern Sussex County, New Jersey. Beloved for its natural resources, including the Appalachian Trail, Wawayanda State Park, and the Wallkill National Wildlife Refuge, Vernon is a perfect refuge for people vacationing during the warm summer months.

Nevertheless, with summer heat comes summer pests. For example, many of Vernon’s abundant trails and forests contain ticks. Ticks are a common, yet dangerous trail companion. They are carriers of both Lyme disease and Powassan disease, which are transmitted to humans through tick bites. Preventative measures to limit exposure to ticks are critical as these diseases can negatively impact quality of life.

Fleas are another pest common to Vernon and the surrounding areas. Though generally less dangerous than ticks, fleas are able to reproduce rapidly and quickly become pervasive. They lay hundreds of eggs at a time, and feed and travel on rodents and other wildlife common in the area. Accordingly, Vernon’s wooded areas are an ideal breeding ground for fleas, which then enter into homes via mice, rats, squirrels, and pets.

There are several preventative measures you can take to avoid ticks and fleas while hiking, fishing, and enjoying nature. To prevent bites on exposed skin, CDC recommends using products with ≥20% DEET.

Long sleeves and pants are also crucial to preventing tick and flea bites. Additionally, treating your clothes with permethrin will prevent these pests from clinging to fabric and hitching a ride home with you.

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.
