Keith was super prompt, knowledgeable, considerate, and professional - only started using this business but I'm confident we will have good results!

We just moved into our new home and discovered an obscene amount of spiders in our basement. Luckily, Keith answered our call and swiftly came to our house to take care of the spiders. He was super friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. I’m grateful he uses sprays that are pollinator friendly, and he even sent links for local nurseries that sell native plants! He also gave recommendations for keeping spiders away from the home. All in all, a great experience. If you are eco-conscious, but also don’t want creepy crawlies taking up space in your home, I highly recommend Pest & Pollinator!

We had a rat infestation in our house for about a year and we tried to take on the job ourselves and it was brutal. The rats kept outsmarting us. We didn't want to hire one of the big name pest control companies in our area because all their treatment options also target butterflies, honey bees, humming birds and other desirable "pests". We hired Keith from Pest & Pollinator LLC because he only targets the undesirable pests. After only 3 treatments, our home is now free of rodents and our garden, flowers, butterflies, honey bees, dogs, cats and goats are still thriving because Keith's treatment techniques have a high specificity to only kill the target pests. I recommend Keith to anyone who has a pest problem and also cares about the environment. He thinks like a pest and is able to outsmart them while avoiding collateral damage.

We had a rat die in our crawl space on a trap so we called Keith to inspect where the rat entered the house. He quickly identified and fixed the location and explained that it was just a single rat instead of an infestation. Throughout his visit, he showed the utmost professionalism and deep knowledge of rodent control. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone dealing with pests in Portland.

I greatly appreciated the fast and thorough response. We suddenly had a terrible smell in our house that we discovered was linked to the crawl space under our house. When we reached out Keith was able to come the next day and the smell was gone with in 24 hours. He also provided us a thorough assessment and plan on how to keep this from occurring again. The plan was executed with success at a very reasonable price. Thank you!

Keith is a pleasure to work with and we've been working together to get rid of some ants. Treatment is still in progress, but so far so good! He is on time, doesn't rush and is happy to explain all of the details of what he's doing. Very knowledgeable and friendly!
