What We Do

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.

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. 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.


    "They have exceeded expectations. Highly recommend."
    Alley Bergemann, called before arriving on the day of the appointment, showed up on time, and took care of re-baiting the bait traps as needed. She is patient, polite and answered a few questions I had, all with a pleasant demeanor.

    "Always been amazed by the competence and professionalism of this company."

    Their man, Elijah was a gentleman and very knowledgeable professional. He took the time to carefully listen to me when I explained where the ant infestation was found. He explained clearly what he was going to do to address the issue.
