Editorial review from Citysearch 6/18/2012

Bedbugs are a nightmare, but the Absolute Death team is dream come true! Unfortunately I have had to deal with bedbugs several times over my nine years of living in the city. Once my building was infested. I decided to go with Absolute Death instead of having my super handle it. My apartment was clear after two treatments while other people in the building were still suffering weeks later. The last few times I have had a more stubborn infestation (my workplace was also infested and I think I was bringing them home repeatedly despite my precautions). Mike spent a lot of time on the phone with me and in person to trouble-shoot the problem. He asked extensive questions and used various techniques. While the last infestation was more difficult to eradicate, Mike's methods were ultimately successful and I would call him again in a heartbeat. He has always been professional, thorough, punctual and supportive. I honestly can't imagine going through this experience without having him to call. I trust Absolute Death completely and would recommend them to anyone dealing with this pest. Not sure what the deal is with Mr. RomanW down there, but having worked with Mike several times I can't imagine him engaging in the kind of behavior he is accused of in that post. I am pleased to see others have taken the time to write up the positive reviews this company deserves, and I'm glad to add mine to the heap! more

I dont know what these other people are 5/26/2012

I dont know what these other people are talking about but this was a terrible experience for me and there is a Better Business Bureau claim and a small claims court civil action pending. This all started when a very disrespectful service technician by the name of Mike came to the house. He could not take his eyes of my wife long enough to conduct his 5 minute inspection so after I asked him to focus he mumbled something and then continued. He did not find any bed bugs or insects but insisted that I need the service anyway. Since there were other good reviews I decided to go ahead with his recommendation. The appointment was scheduled, I took time off work and he never showed up. I rescheduled and he did not show up for the second appointment. I pre-paid for the service up front and have not received any money back despite several phone calls. I am furious and feel completed victimized. Please dont end up in the same situation. more

Excellent, reliable service! 10/1/2010

I've been using Absolute Death for over a year now and couldn't be happier with the service. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Mike is an experienced exterminator who always puts the customer at ease and gets results. They are also punctual and the organic sprays are greatly appreciated. I highly recommend them! more

Absolute Fabulous! 7/22/2010

I've used Absolute Death now twice and always with great results and incredibly fast, friendly and terrific service. They took care of a major ant infestation for me as well as wasp removal. This is the real thing! Local business with great professionals and personal care and concern. I couldn't recommend them more and have shared their name with all of my friends and neighbors. Pros: Do a great job and friendly, personal, professional service Cons: None! more

The Best I've Found 6/30/2010

I had bed bugs twice, in two different Brooklyn apartments. Both times it was a significant problem, and both times Absolute Death solved that problem. The first time I had bed bugs I had no idea what they were. I thought I had hives. After two months and one unsuccessful treatment with another company, I called Absolute Death and they were able to completely eradicate the problem in just one day. The second time, two years later, I was living in another part of Brooklyn and knew right away that I had bed bugs but my new roommates didn't believe me so it took 2 months again to convince everybody to let me bring in Absolute Death. Although we had to pack up our entire 2-bedroom apartment (no small feat) they came in and again took care of the problem. I had a slight recurrence a month later when I tried to reintroduce a suitcase into the room and they came back the day I called, used organic spray and solved the problem right away. I highly recommend Absolute Death. I'm living in Philly now and have bed bugs again and can't tell you how devastated I am that I have to find a new exterminator. And even now, I called and asked for help in knowing what to look for in a new exterminator and they gave me all the information I need. Although it's a huge pain to pack up the entire apartment, (it's literally like you have to move out and back in again in two days,) it was entirely worth it because the right problem was fixed immediately. I recommend Absolute Death to all my friends and family. I believe they are the best and most knowledgeable bed bug exterminators in Brooklyn. Pros: thorough, get the job done Cons: cost, preparations more

Absolute Professionalism 3/23/2010

No one wants to have bed bugs in their building...it never matters how they got there, just that they can be eliminated as quickly as possible. Our building made the decision to switch to A.D. after a previous company allowed a tenant to do partial treatments - laughable for anyone with bed bug experience. These critters are on the subways and you think they're not coming into your living room?! When we called Absolute Death for facts and estimates, Mike was very helpful and answered all of our questions - he even made sure that he was one of the technicians for our first treatment. Cooperation is the key in dealing with these little beasts...everyone needs to follow the same instructions in order for the treatments to be successful. Absolute Death provided a very simple and specific procedure for the building to follow to prepare. The technicians walked each tenant through their apartment, making sure that things were properly arranged for the treatment. I will recommend Absolute Death to anyone needing help with their bed bug situation. Pros: Provided very detailed instructions, Answered all questions more

Best Service! 3/9/2010

Firstly, Absolute Death has the best men on the job. Mike, in particular, is extremely insightful and clearly an expert in the field. He easily answered all of my questions while being thorough in his job. In the past, we have used several of the big name companies and they DO NOT compare to Absolute Death. The name says it all with this company and we are so lucky to have found them. I highly recommend them!!! And, ask to have Mike come out!! Pros: Experts in the Business more

Bad to Bugs and a lousy Customer Service Experience 2/28/2010

We had bedbugs and were treating them (not with Absolute Death) but when it appeared that the bugs were traveling, the Building wanted every apt. treated. They didn't like the idea of the chemical treatment we were using and so called Absolute Death for an organic solution. It was quick on the service call but the lead technician was patronizing and acted as though I was stupid for using chemicals. Obviously, they weren't told about our previous treatment and at first, didn't even want to treat our apartment. Pros: Others in the Building didn't mind Cons: We should have had Mike - more

Excellent Work, Great People! 11/13/2009

The owner took the necessary time to explain my options, listen to my concerns and answer my questions. I was fully informed. Pros: Cost competitive, Responsive, Empathetic Cons: I had mice! more

vermin angels 9/17/2009

Anybody who has had bedbugs in NYC knows how traumatizing the experience can be financially, emotionally and otherwise. Mike took every one of my frantic phone calls in good humor and is very knowledgeable. He spoke with me for at least 30 minutes when I first called. Unfortunately, my apartment had to be sprayed more than once; however, Mike was always available and on time to help. I couldn't recommend a better pest control service. You need someone to make you feel better throughout the process, and get rid of those tenacious beasts. Absolute Death goes above and beyond on both fronts... and has a great name! Make sure you ask for Mike! Pros: Excellent service more

best pest control service around 8/5/2009

I used Absolute Death on a recommendation and because I liked the name. They showed up on time and they totally knew what they were doing. They didn't just do a superficial extermination- they figured out the layout of my building (my adjacent neighbor is to blame and he used an inferior company) and gave me a price break on organic chemicals. Then they drilled and placed the products inside the walls and around my apartment to protect me from my neighbor. I have not seen a single (live) bedbug since. And when I needed documentation from them for my building to get reimbursed, they were really nice about providing me whatever I needed. I don't ususally write reviews of services online, but this company was so good I felt I owed it to them. I wouldn't wish bedbugs on anyone, but I can tell you I don't have them anymore, and I highly recommend this company. Pros: very effective service, polite staff, very good rates more

Lovely, Flexible, Understanding, Competant and Thorough 11/27/2008

I went through a terrible experience with an awful infestation that was caused by my building's negligence. It was both sudden and debilitating. A friend recommended Absolute Death. Mike scheduled an emergency appointment with me the very next day and gave me thorough instructions to prepare for his visit as well as tasks that I must follow through on to be sure of a complete extermination. He repeatedly checked in with me afterward to ensure my satisfaction and continued to answer every question or concern that crossed my mind. Not only did he do an excellent and highly professional job as an exterminator but he treated me with understanding and respect as a person going through a highly traumatic experience. If anyone should ask me for a company to recommend I would insist they call Absolute Death. more

Thorough Service at a Great Price! 11/14/2008

I recently discovered that I had a pest in my apartment and tried to treat the problem myself by using d-con traps and bait. However, to no avail, I finally decided to call an exterminator. I did a quick search in Brooklyn for exterminators and Absoulte Death was in the top of the search results. They came to my house on a Friday night and exterminated my apartment. I chose the Basic package which they installed in less than 30 minutes. They even got rid of a dead rodent that they found in my kitchen! They are fabulous and very personable! I would highly recommend Absolute Death for any pest control problems because they provide quality service! Pros: Quality service, friendly staff more

I hope you never have bedbugs, but if you do, I couldn't have asked for better service. 11/6/2008

They were knowledgeable and realistic about my problem. It was terrible and they told me right away that they would probably have to come back at least once. After one time, the problem improved significantly. I was still uncertain that all of the bedbugs were gone, so a few weeks later, they came back again. Since then, I have been able to live comfortably in my apartment again! Throughout the entire experience, they were always willing to answer my many questions, and I found that as long as I followed all of their instructions specifically, I was fine. I saw in some of the reviews that people complained about rashes from the chemicals, but I was told specifically not to let my bare skin touch areas that had been sprayed. I wore socks around my house and of course put a cover back over my futon. Another thing I noticed is that people complained that the problem wasn't solved or that they sprayed things that shouldn't be sprayed (a dog?). They specifically asked me to pack everything in to trash bags besides furniture and the like, so I don't know how this happened to people. The reality is that my whole experience with bedbugs was a complete nightmare and it was terrible having to leave my house to not be around the chemicals for a night and having to lure the bedbugs out to bite me and pack and unpack my stuff, but Absolute Death was realistic about how difficult it would be and in the end, did everything they could to solve the problem. If your bedbugs come back after using their service, it's probably a problem with your entire building and something that the owner needs to address. My landlord/owner were no help to me in the situation, and if it had come to that, I probably would have moved out. Luckily, that wasn't necessary. I don't know what else I could say except that I am thankful to Absolute Death for making my apartment livable again and for putting up with my many, many phone calls and obsessive questioning! Pros: Personal service - I usually spoke to one of two people - and basically, getting the job done. Cons: Literally, the only thing I can think of is that they are so busy answering calls that sometimes I had to call a few times to get someone on the phone. But I always did! more

absolute terrible service 6/22/2008

Cons: cannot solve problems, also have sticky fingers more

Bedbug hitmen 6/19/2008

Things became really uncomfortable when the people in my office realized that the bites they were getting were from a bedbug infestation. Needless to say, morale was low and people dreaded coming to work. After 2 unsuccessful visits by, in retrospect, clearly inferior exterminators, we called Absolute. After a 30 minute call in which I was given a detailed, in-depth briefing on bedbugs and their methods of eradication, I knew that I had found the right people. These guys are the real deal, very professional and very honest. The treatment had to be repeated a couple of times but we have been bedbug free for over 15 months now. In addition, we haven't seen any other pests either. This can't be good for ongoing business but it certainly justifies their price. I would recommend Absolute Death to anyone. Pros: Great service more

Nice to people, merciless to pests 4/21/2008

I've been visited by Absolute Death many, many times because I live in a place that is unfortunately ideal for bedbugs. Little by little, the bedbugs have been eliminated from each bedroom. The bedbugs in my room have been especially persistent, but so are the guys from Absolute Death. They are super friendly and nice. They are flexible with scheduling, even when they are booked. They return my calls and calm my fears. They answer a million questions every time we talk. They are thorough and professional. They know everything about the chemicals they are using and why. They honor their 30-day guarantee respraying policy, which I very much appreciate due to my repeat visits. I have suffered many other kinds of pestilence in my life and have often been treated like a leper or freak - such is not the case with Absolute Death. Even though I've had a bedbug problem for months, they are still really patient and not judgemental. I highly recommend them to anyone with a bedbug or other sort of pest problem. Plus their company name is both serious and hilarious. Pros: Knowledgeable, patient, flexible, reliable Cons: A little expensive, but not everyone needs to be sprayed as many times as me... more

Absolute Death Exterminators- Customer service excellence!!! 2/13/2008

I am writing to thank the guys at Absolute Death for helping me in a very difficult and stressful situation. I called them to come and treat for bedbugs when I started getting these very strange bites which were different from any bites I'd ever had before. I began to suspect bedbugs shortly after getting these bites. EVERYONE that I spoke to at Absolute Death was beyond helpful. They took alot of time speaking to me and listening to me and explaining what the process would be like. They answered all of my questions, never lost patience and followed through with everything they promised. They have perfected the art of customer service and I would not hesitate to use them again in the future. They stand behind their work and if you need them to come back, they are still as nice as they were the first time. Customer Service should be part of their name- thanks guys. Pros: Frank, Mike and Anthony are pros!! Cons: cant think of any! more

Bedbugs gone 2/1/2008

First of I called Absolute Death and Frank answered the phone he was very helpful with everything took his time to explain everything and the process with the bedbugs my wife and I had. He told me what I needed to know and also sent me an e-mail explaining the whole process. I couldn't believe there was some much work to get rid of these pest. As I called the next day Absolute Death came to my house and went to town with these pest wow I couldn't believe it. I like the the fact that they didn't waste time and started to exterminate these little pest. My wife was happy that we called Absolute death because now we live happy and pest free. I recommend these people to anyone I can't believe the service they provide for me. I would use them again for anything. thank you absolute death our home is safe again. more
