Pest Control Truck refers to a running gag, often represented by a Ford Econoline commercial van, featured during the opening sequence of every Bob's Burgers episode. Between the Grand Re-Opening, and the Grand Re-Re-Opening, truck pulls up in front of Bob's Burgers accompanied by numerous raccoons, squirrels, rats, and snakes. Similar to the Store Next Door, the truck features clever word play - often in the form of a pun - in the company name on the truck. After season one, a different company name and logo is shown on the side of the truck in every episode; the following is a list of these company names:

Trivia

  • Season 1 featured the same "Rat's all Folks! EXTERMINATORS" truck in every episode.
  • Bobs Burgers-Wiki Exterminator-Truck Jimmy-Pesto-Reflection 01

    Jimmy Pesto's reflection.

    Starting with the Season 3 premiere, Jimmy Pesto's reflection can be seen in the driver's side window of each truck as he looks on with a contemptuous grin from across the street.
  • In Seasons 1 and 2 there were only mice running towards the restaurant. From Season 3 until The Runway Club a whole variety of different animals are seen, and from The Itty Bitty Ditty Committee onward the animals change in relation to the pest control company name.
  • Starting with 3ASA production season episodes, all trucks have "exterminators" or "pest control" after the business name, apart from "Curiosity Killed the Rat", from "I Get Psy-chic Out of You."
