IPM – The Key to Organic Pest Control

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the best way to get effective & organic pest control. Many pests can be managed by monitoring, adjusting their food & habitat, encouraging natural predators, or with other non-toxic pest control techniques.

Keith was wonderful to work with. He understood our concerns about traditional pesticide use and worked with us to find a solution that solved our carpenter ant issue without jeopardizing the health of our garden and pollinators. He's also a down-to-earth guy and wasn't pushy at all. Highly recommend.

I’ve had wasps living in my hot tub mechanisms for two years. I’ve tried opening it up to find their nest and using other at home remedies to no avail. I contacted pest and pollinators, and Keith come out and took care of the wasps in the same day, without needing to even take apart the hot tub. Would 100% recommend.

Keith is fantastic! He was on the same page as me when I asked for help with the ants, but wanted to be sure the spiders, bees & butterflies would be safe. We recently had a random infestation of moths that he helped identify & treat. Highly recommend!

Keith Chaloux

Owner / Operator • Pest & Pollinator LLC

For over a decade, Keith has been managing habitat around Portland Oregon. First as an ecological restoration crew for Ash Creek Forest Management LLC, he gained valuable hands-on experience with ecology & native plants.

In 2016, Keith was licensed for tree, turf & shrub care, wildlife control, and pest control for just about anything. From blackberry, ivy, spiders to rats, experience showed there’s a common thread. When native species are protected, the ecosystem seems to function better and do it’s own pest control.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) helps to protect the natural systems that sustain biodiversity.

In early 2021 he left Pioneer Pest Management to start Pest & Pollinator LLC with a mission to promote habitat restoration & provide safe IPM solutions in the pest control industry.

In his free time Keith likes to look at bugs in his organic garden, explore the outdoors, and stand in the front at local Portland shows.
