NEW YORK — New York pest management professionals Jimmy Tallman and Michael Morales of Magic Exterminating (a New York City and Long Island based company) are the stars of “Rat Busters NYC,” a new series that premiered last week on the Animal Planet

According to a press release from the Animal Planet, the new program “invites cameras to see just what's 'rat'tling New Yorkers. These Brooklyn-born pest experts strip away the city's protective veil as they bring the reality of the army of vermin that are a part of The Big Apple's immense population to light — and they're everywhere — from warehouses and small businesses to apartments and single-family homes, from the Upper East Side to Tribeca and crawling all over Brooklyn and Queens! Six hour-long episodes of “Rat Busters NYC” follow service managers Jimmy and Michael, a comedic dynamic duo with a brother-like kinship, as they tackle rat families bigger than their own, and other metropolitan pests like roaches, mice, bed bugs, raccoons and pigeons.”
