Who We Are

For more than 75 years, Big Blue Bug Solutions (formerly New England Pest Control) has been providing effective and responsible solutions for residential and commercial pest problems.  And, although our name has changed to Big Blue Bug Solutions, we are proud to carry on our longstanding tradition of protecting New England homes and businesses with the most comprehensive pest control services available in the region.  We are fully licensed and insured and our uniformed technicians are ready to assist you with courtesy and discretion.  

Started in 1935 by Leonard Y. Goldman, our Rhode Island pest control company has grown from a small, local company to one of the largest pest control companies in southern New England.  Today, President and CEO Stephan E. Goldman, son of the founder, continues the tradition his father began and has been joined by his sons Scott and Brian.  

Headquartered in Providence, we are also well known for our distinctive landmark, the Big Blue Bug, a celebrated Rhode Island icon since 1980.  Learn more about Nibbles Woodaway, the Big Blue Bug.  We also operate an office out of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and employ approximately 75 people.  

What We Do

While many people know us because of our rooftop icon, Nibbles Woodaway, aka the Big Blue Bug, the truth is many thousands know us by our reputation for unmatched pest control services.

Insect and pests are part of our lives – for the most part unwelcome.  There are nearly 100,000 species of pests and many of them can make your life unhappy.

Big Blue Bug Solutions provides a wide range of pest control services for both residential and commercial properties.  To that end, we continually conduct education seminars to keep our technicians up to date on the latest changes in our industry.

At Big Blue Bug Solutions, we take pride in our professional and environmentally responsible approaches to pest control.  With a 75-year reputation for excellence, we take our jobs very seriously.  Pest infestation is serious.  Our promise is our guarantee that your pest problem will be eliminated.  No more bugs.  Period.  

And like Nibbles always says, “Ask about our guarantee – or get bugged by someone else’s.”

Testimonials

One day last month I saw hundreds of flying bugs coming out of a spot where my house's foundation meets my patio. They were very unnerving and I worried that I had termites - flying termites. After googling them, I knew I had to call someone. Who but the Big Blue Bug people, right? It was about 4:00 in the afternoon. I phoned and got an appointment for between 8:00 and 9:00 the next morning. At 8:15 your technician, Phil, called and said he was on his way. He arrived promptly afterward and looked at the baggie full of bugs that I had collected. He instantly knew what they were and much to my delight he proclaimed them citronella ants! He gave me a short lesson on the physical differences between ants and termites and told me that no treatment was necessary. I thanked him profusely and I meant it. Not only was your company available immediately, but Phil was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. I was also impressed that he did not try to sell me a treatment that I did not need. I was clearly worried at first and I realize that another company could have taken advantage of that fact and easily convinced me to pay for something that I did not need. Not the case with NEPC. I would like to commend both New England Pest Control and specifically, Phil, for a job well done. If I ever need a pest control service again I will absolutely call on you. Also, I will be recommending your company to everyone I know who is looking for an honest company when it comes to pest control.
Thank you so much for your honest and reliable service. Have a nice day!
