Magic Exterminating Pest Management Review

Our Overall Rating (4.2)

Company Review

Founded in 1960, Magic Exterminating has served the five boroughs of New York as well as Nassau County in Long Island. Now on its second generation of family ownership, it is still committed to providing the best pest control service possible to New York and Long Island.

Field technicians for Magic Exterminating are trained and educated in the Integrated Pest Management System of eco-friendly techniques. The business is certified with the IPM Institute of North America and Green Shield Certified as well. This company also employs three entomologists to review field documentation and direct a quality assurance program.

Magic Exterminating’s Perimeter Defense Program uses preventative measures to keep bugs out first. Technicians remove habitats, seal entry paths, and remove food and water sources. When techs arrive for the free onsite inspection and price quote, a complete course of action is determined and discussed with the owner. The website for Magic Exterminating has no pricing information available.

Not only is the yard and outside of the structure treated, but the entirety of the inside with focus on the most infested spots.  Magic Exterminating treats for bugs such as ants, bedbugs, roaches, termites, stinging insects, and mice. 

Magic Exterminating also offers a seasonal protection program. It treats all the pests that bother New Yorkers during specific seasons such as paper wasps, ladybugs, and moths. 

Magic Exterminating promises to return for interior treatments at no charge if the pests remain present in the structure after initial treatment.

Most reviews of Magic Exterminating are favorable. Many compliment the field staff’s knowledge and thoroughness in their work. Quite a few also mention the effectiveness of the service and how complete the exterminations are.

Of the few negative comments, most were directed at the telephone and customer service staff. There were a few complaints of rudeness and ineffective service. Another common negative complaint is the price. A few customers claim it is higher priced than other residential pest control services in the area.

Magic Exterminating also helps maintain rodents and errant wildlife in an ethical, environmentally friendly way. Field techs use traps and bait to lure raccoons, opossum, rodents, and birds and then safely relocate them to a natural world environment.

Part of the wildlife management service is to thoroughly inspect the structure and landscape for trouble spots. This could include a safe place to dwell, food and water supplies, and easy entry into the structure. In the case of nesting birds, decoy predators are effective as are the sounds of prey animals.

Magic Exterminating also offers chemical fumigation, if necessary. Their goal is to treat badly infested areas and protect the belongings inside in a safe and ethical manner. All fumigating services are properly documented, aerated, and monitored to stringent state standards.

Overall, this company has some strong ratings and a loyal consumer base to back it up. The negative remarks are sparing and all deal with small resolvable issues. The effectiveness of Magic Exterminating is never in question.
