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.

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!!!

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!

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.

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.

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!
