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!

## Pest & Pollinator: Saving our sanity (and our rental property)! **5 stars, no question!** Pest & Pollinator isn't just your average pest control company – they're **eco-conscious heroes** who saved our rental property from a critter catastrophe! Let's just say, when we discovered unwelcome guests (of the creepy crawly variety) had taken up residence, we were at our wits' end. But Pest & Pollinator, with their **calm expertise and innovative approach**, turned the tide in record time. **Here's why they deserve every star under the sun:** * **Quick response:** They were at our door within 24 hours, ready to assess the situation. No waiting in pest purgatory! * **Thorough inspection:** They didn't just spray and pray. They meticulously identified the culprit, their entry points, and potential nesting spots. They even explained everything in a way we could understand (no entomology jargon here!). * **Eco-friendly solutions:** We were thrilled with their **commitment to sustainable pest control**. They used targeted, natural methods that kept our furry (and not-so-furry) friends safe while eliminating the unwanted ones. No chemical cocktails or harmful residues – just peace of mind. * **Follow-up and prevention:** They didn't just disappear after the initial treatment. They followed up to ensure the problem was truly gone and even offered tips on long-term prevention – like sealing up potential entry points and creating a welcoming environment for natural predators. **The result?** Our rental property is pest-free, our tenants are happy, and we can finally sleep soundly knowing Pest & Pollinator has our back (and our walls)! **If you're looking for pest control that's effective, eco-friendly, and simply fantastic, look no further than Pest & Pollinator. They're the real deal, and they'll have you singing their praises (pest-free, of course!) in no time.** **P.S.** Bonus points for their friendly and professional staff! They made a stressful situation a lot less so with their positive attitude and clear communication. **Thank you, Pest & Pollinator! You're our new pest-banishing BFFs!**

About Me

Locally Owned & Operated. Portland Small Business.

Keith Chaloux

Owner / IPM Specialist • Pest & Pollinator LLC

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

In 2016, Keith was licensed for tree, turf & shrub care, wildlife control, and pest control for just about anything. Feeling mixed feelings about being an exterminator, he called on his experience with native habitats. When native species are restored, the ecosystem seems to function better and do it’s own pest control. IPM is the technique to work with nature to create safe solutions for pest & invasive issues.

He started Pest & Pollinator in 2021 to promote IPM in Portland backyards,  and to provide our community excellent pest control service while eliminating chemical hazards to the ecosystem.

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. Give him a call or email to learn more from an IPM specialist in Portland.
