Parsippany, N.J.-based Western Pest Services, a subsidiary of Rollins Inc., will expand to southern New Jersey and Pennsylvania with the acquisition of Abalene Termite & Pest Control.

Abalene Termite & Pest Control opened in 1927. Owner Ulrich Blumenthal and his son Daniel have built the company over the years in and around Mercer County. Abalene Termite & Pest Control serves residential and commercial customers in the area of central New Jersey and parts of Pennsylvania.

The acquisition will enable both companies to broaden their service areas. A news release about the deal says it will also allow the companies to retain the family feel of a neighborhood provider but with the perks of a larger company with more resources.

“Acquiring Abalene Termite & Pest Control is definitely a great thing for the company, but even more so for their customers,” Pat Porcella, regional manager of Western Pest Services, said. “We are happy to be able to bring the customers at Abalene the service they have come to expect — plus the rest of the services Western offers. It’s definitely a win for everyone.”

Since 1928, Western Pest Services has provided quality pest control services to local homes and businesses in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.

According to the news release, Western Pest Services was interested in acquiring Abalene Termite & Pest Control “because of their fast, dependable and honest pest control services … along with their customer-first approach.”

Western Pest Services is proud to welcome Abalene Termite & Pest Control into its portfolio of companies and looks forward to continuing to bring their customers the level of service they have come to expect, according to a new release.

Western Pest Services Celebrates 85 Years

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A novel study of honey bee genetic diversity co-authored by an Indiana University biologist has for the first time found that greater diversity in worker bees leads to colonies with fewer pathogens and more abundant helpful bacteria like probiotic species.

Led by IU Bloomington assistant professor Irene L.G. Newton and Wellesley College assistant professor Heather Mattila, and co-authors from Wellesley College and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research, the new work describes the communities of active bacteria harbored by honey bee colonies. The study, which was conducted at Wellesley College in 2010, is also the first to identify four important microbes in bee colonies that have previously been associated with fermentation in humans and other animals: Succinivibrio (associated with cow rumens), Oenococcus (wine fermentation), Paralactobacillus (food fermentation) and Bifidobacterium (yogurt).
Newton, who joined the IU College of Arts and Sciences' Department of Biology last year, said the research suggests honey bees may take advantage of these beneficial symbiotic bacteria to convert indigestible material into nutritious food and to enhance protection from pathogens.

The research identified, for the first time, important food-processing genera in honey bee colonies: Succinivibrio and Oenococcus were the dominant genera found in the study, and there was 40 percent greater activity of the probiotic genera Bifidobacterium and Paralactobacillus in colonies that were genetically diverse compared to those that were genetically uniform. Genetic diversity is created in a colony when a queen mates with many male bees, an act that is known to improve colony health and productivity.

"We don't yet know what's causing colony collapse disorder, but colonies that succumb to it suffer from a broad range of problems," Newton said of a phenomenon that the U.S. Department of Agriculture says has taken about 34 percent of the overall U.S. honey bee population each year since 2007. "What we observed in our work was that there was less likelihood of potentially pathogenic bacteria showing up in genetically diverse honey bee colonies compared to genetically uniform colonies."

The team was able to sample and then classify over 70,500 genetic sequences for bacterial genera from 10 genetically uniform colonies and 12 genetically diverse colonies by analyzing a specific molecule found in RNA -- a first for examining honey bees and their symbiotic microbes. Their study is the largest of its kind -- the single-largest analysis of newly identified active microbes ever to be identified in honey bees. In addition, they revealed that those microbes were more diverse in genetically diverse colonies (1,105 unique bacterial species) compared to genetically uniform colonies (781 species).

"What we found was that genetically diverse colonies have a more diverse, healthful, active bacterial community -- a greater number and diversity of bacterial sequences affiliated with beneficial genera were found in genetically diverse colonies," Newton said. "Conversely, genetically uniform colonies had a higher activity of potential plant and animal pathogens in their digestive tract -- 127 percent higher than workers from genetically diverse colonies."
Newton's co-author, Heather Mattila, has been investigating the benefits of genetic diversity for honey bees for years and was thrilled to have Newton's microbial expertise incorporated into the project.

"This is an exciting result because it gives us insight into how individual bees and their symbionts can enhance the overall health of a colony when it is genetically diverse," Mattila said.

It is yet unknown how genetic diversity within a colony generates and maintains more diverse and healthful bacteria. A honey bee colony is a eusocial superorganism -- thousands of worker sisters work together to execute all tasks needed by the whole. Honey bees may benefit from the bacterial symbionts that they host by increased resistance to colonization by pathogens or through the production of nutrients by these microbes. Newton and Mattila believe the work has clear implications not only for how colonies are managed worldwide but also for the evolutionary advantages that polyandry (mating with multiple males) holds for eusocial honey bees.

"We are particularly interested in these results, and think the public will be too, given the alarming honey bee colony losses in recent years due to colony collapse disorder, as well as the role that these pollinators play in the security of our food supply," Newton said. "From what we've found at this point, I guess you could say that when you are living with 40,000 of your closest relatives, it pays to be genetically diverse."

Co-authors with Newton and Mattila were Wellesley undergraduates Daniela Rios and Victoria Walker-Sperling, and Guus Roeselers of the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research. Funding was provided by Wellesley's Brachman Hoffman Awards and a grant from the Essex County Beekeepers Association, Massachusetts.

Western Pest Services

Western Pest Services is a pest control company in the Mid-Atlantic[1] with commercial, residential and fumigation divisions. The company is headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey and has locations throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.[2] The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rollins Inc.[3]


Western was founded by J.E. Sameth prior to the Great Depression in 1928.[4] Sameth was the technician, his sister was the customer service representative, and his father handled sales. Today, the company uses Integrated Pest Management for consumers and industries such as health care, education, and food processing. In 2004, Western Pest Services was acquired by Rollins Inc.[5] and went from being a privately owned company to a public company.[6] Prior to the acquisition, Western Pest Services was ranked as the 8th largest company in the industry.[7]

Western's name[edit]

J.E. Sameth considered several names, including Eastern, Western, National and Federal. Sameth named the company by pulling the name “Western” out of a hat.[4]

Brand evolution[edit]

  • Western started out with the cowboy and cowgirl branding. This was a natural tie with the company name.
  • In the 1950s the cowgirl was dropped, and they went with the “branding cowboy.” Also, it went from “Western Exterminating Co.” to “Western Termite and Pest Control.”
  • In the 1970s they dropped the cowboy and went with a “hockey sticks” brand image.
  • In the 1980s “caring people, caring solutions” was added.
  • In the 1990s a teal backdrop was tried
  • In 2005 they switched to their current company branding[6]

Locations and branches[edit]

Western has 18 branches in five states.[2]

Industry involvement[edit]

Western’s founder, J.E. Sameth, was one of the founders of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), the industry's educational affiliate, in 1933.[8] The NPMA publishes trade material, holds certification conferences, and has state chapters.[9]

Sameth was also one of the six original founders of Copesan in 1958.[10] Copesan was a company formed by small, family-owned companies.

Western’s Commercial division is a member of industry associations, including the American Council on Science and Health, American Institute of Baking, BOMA, and the Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association.

Western Pest Services Management reviews

No direction whatsoever

Pest Control Technician (Current Employee) - Springhouse, Pa. - February 13, 2018

I was given 2 days of training and placed in a truck and put on the road with no real grip of what the day to day operations, procedures or scope of services were. I was not in the same account twice in 2 months. Every day was like groundhog day. I would be sent to hospitals, schools, apartment complexes,and other very large facilities with no contact info, no idea where to report, who to report to,or where the equipment or areas to treat were. And to top it off the allotted time to complete jobs was absurd. No self-respecting technician worth his weight in salt could make a dent in the pest problems he was faced with in the accounts this company targets.

The management are truly charlatans. There is no clear direction, no communication. The culture is awful. Morale is low. They care nothing about the field level employees, and worse yet, their customers. I quite literally would not know when I was starting work any given day until halfway through the day before, making work-life balance non-existent. It is a horrible experience to work for Western Pest Services. I cannot warn you strongly enough to stay away from this place.


They only pay you from the time you start your first job until the time you leave your last, no matter how long your commute is..
