Posted: Updated:

You may think bed bugs are so 2010, but they still exist, so much so that Animal Planet wants to help New Yorkers by fixing the problem. The catch? The result will be some sort of reality show, of course.

Brooklyn365 received the following note.

[ED. NOTE: The original announcement from the show has been updated to clarify that there is no guarantee of free services.]



A new series on a major cable network is looking to solve pest problems and infestations in all 5 boroughs. They’ll set you up with an accredited local pest control company that will tackle your pest problem, and follow the process of making your home or business pest-free. They’re looking for severe pest infestations of any kind, from cockroaches and bedbugs to rats and raccoons. No infestation is too severe for their team. All correspondence will be kept strictly confidential AND they won’t even need to mention or show the name or location of your business or home/apt. This is a great opportunity to have some of the best experts in the business put an end to your infestation.

If Interested, please send an email to with a brief description of your infestation along with any photos/documentation of the problem (if possible). In the subject line of the email, please indicate what kind of pest you’re having a problem with.
