Our gorgeous Charles River, stately trees and historic buildings make Newton Upper Falls one of the nicest villages in New England. For families and business owners, it has much to offer.

As summer draws to a close, mosquitos, roaches, spiders and ants will be less problematic. Keep reading to learn about common pests that might pose a new threat.
These tiny, oval, reddish-brown nuisances feed on the blood of sleeping humans.
Despite the horrifying pictures on the internet, most people don’t react to bed bug bites. By the time homeowners find the nasty evidence these pests leave behind, the bedbug population has swelled.
Since bed bugs have become largely resistant to most pesticides, it’s virtually impossible to eradicate them on your own using home methods.
Termites are similar in size and appearance to ants, and it takes a trained eye to make the distinction.
These destructive insects do billions of dollars in damage every year, and a single colony can multiply to around a million before you realize that you have a problem.
Termites like wood and plant byproducts for their cellulose. They set up shop underground and tunnel to anything that makes earth-to-wood contact, especially when it is adjacent to a home or business. Trees, unused construction materials and even mulch draw termites.
Stacked firewood is one of the most common examples, and it’s almost time to stock up. Store firewood well away from your structure in an elevated rack.
Our area has a diverse population of wildlife that includes squirrels, raccoons, beavers and even bats. Unfortunately, many of our furry friends carry diseases and damage property.
Rats, mice and squirrels are the worst offenders. They’re attracted to your home or office for its warmth, shelter, food supply and nesting materials.
Everyone knows what squirrels look like, but distinguishing rats and mice is a little trickier. In general, mice measure just 1 to 4 inches in length. Compared to rats, mice have larger ears and longer tails in proportion to their bodies.
There’s almost nothing that rodents won’t chew on. Wood, plastic, cement, drywall, aluminum and even brick are tempting. Electrical wiring poses special dangers because rodent activity can spark a fire or wreak havoc under the hood of a car.
Do-it-yourself methods are unsafe and usually ineffective. Rodent removal and prevention is a job for professionals.
