Broadway Exterminating at 66 Rivington

Posted on: December 10th, 2010 at 6:18 am by

2010 is truly the perfect time to be an exterminator, what with bedbugs practically ruling the streets of Manhattan.  It seems almost every week another department store, movie theater, or government office building is infected by the itchy-scratchy critters.  Business is apparently good enough at UWS-based Broadway Exterminating that it’s opened a Lower East Side outpost. Except in this neighborhood there’s more to worry about than just bedbugs.  Rats run wild in the streets and cockroaches are so prevalent they should probably be considered domesticated pets.
