Who We Are

We are world famous for our distinctive landmark: The Big Blue Bug. The 58-foot termite replica watches over New England from the roof of our Providence Headquarters. Learn more about Nibbles Woodaway, the Big Blue Bug

What's more famous than our Local Icon? Our Iconic Service! For more than 80 years, Big Blue Bug Solutions has built its name by protecting homes throughout New England with the most effective and responsible pest control solutions.

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

For more than 80 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.

Big Blue Bug Solutions provides a wide range of pest control services for both residential and commercial properties. To that end, we continually conduct educational 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. 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.
