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.
