THE PEOPLE SPEAK

Andy Linares is a man of the highest integrity with a strong sense of honor. I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Andy on a host of projects while I was the editorial director of PMP magazine, and I am here to tell you that Andy will deliver on what he promises. It's rare these days to find a business partner in which you can have absolute trust — but Andy Linares is just such a partner.

Frank Andorka, OH

2012 was my favorite Expo so far, and I have attended 9 of them! The spirit was incredible! Everyone came together in the wake of hurricane Sandy to prove that New York is the greatest city in the US and Bug Off leads the pack in NY-Style Events!!!
Jacque S., IL
Great meeting, Sir. It was a privilege to be included as a speaker. Your event should serve as a model for how it can be done. You engaged both the audience and the exhibitors. Both groups got value for the time and dollars spent to attend. Well done!
Jeff McGovern, FL
Andy is a very good contact to have. He makes sure all of his staff is fully informed in pest control. We invested in our staff and sent them to Andy for pest control training.
Jesus M., NY
Great place to learn just about everything there is to know about pests. A wide selection, consistently stocked and helpful, knowledgeable staff.

~Jose S, NY

They were really helpful when I had bug problems in my house. And were even considerate enough to orient me on what was the best solution for my problem.

~Eduardo M.

This is the greatest and most helpful company when it comes to bugs/pests and how to effectively deal with them.  All the workers are very well educated, helpful and understanding.  They never try to sell you tons of products, you leave with exactly what you need every time!

Erica J., OR

As far as I'm concerned, Andy and the guys at Bug Off are the go-to resource for everything related to pest control. They stock a complete supply of pest control products and are not only highly knowledgeable about their uses/efficacy but can explain in both English and Spanish. Being a relatively new applicator, I was guided to Bug Off by some of the most respected experts in the business, and now I've come to depend on the courses, advice and networking opportunities offered by Bug Off -- especially the annual professional Pest Expo. Hands down, Bug Off makes me better at my job.
Maryellen Nugent-Lee, NY

Andy's the man and a true exterminating legend.
Lawrence P

 

Andy is very informative and helps out whenever it's needed. They always have the supplies my company is looking for. I truly enjoy working with him.
Karen A., Staten Island, NY

 

I just wanted to thank you for putting on an awesome training and product seminar. I must say that the knowledge base and participants you had available greatly improved my arsenal for pest control here on our campus and I really thank you for hosting this event. Again, thank you for a wonderful seminar and I look forward to the next one.
