Changing Portland Pest Control For The Better.

We’re facing a challenging future. Sustainability depends on making the right decisions for the environment. Pest & Pollinator was founded on the belief that there’s more we can be doing now to improve ecological & pollinator safety for Portland pest control services.

Together, let’s change the way we do this.

Mission

Our mission is to empower the most ecologically responsible pest control and backyard habitat management in order to better protect the safety of pollinators, wildlife & the environment. We believe in actively promoting sustainability, climate resilience, regenerative gardening & habitat connectivity for a more abundant and biodiverse future.

We aim to achieve this by continually diversifying and expanding knowledge of local ecosystems, and the biology of the organisms we want to protect & the ones we want to control. We hope to create new networks for ecologically forward community outreach, education & partnerships.

We provide the environmental experience and industry leading services necessary to help people achieve the healthiest home habitats possible, guaranteed. Our ecologically intuitive pest & wildlife management, rodent exclusion, regenerative soil & plant health care, and habitat restoration services are designed to achieve these objectives. 

Vision

In both the habitat restoration and pest control industries, opportunities to change the status quo are continually revealed. We hope to lead major systemic improvements in invasive species management with our interdisciplinary approach.

Pest & Pollinator LLC is creating a new model of urban pest management that dramatically reduces pesticide pollution using IPM. We demonstrate the value of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as the guidelines for the safest AND most effective nuisance species management. We will use education, engagement and outreach to change the way people think about residential, commercial and municipal nuisance and invasive species management. In order to reduce pesticide pollution to protect pollinators, we need to understand why people use pesticides in Portland, in order to find better, more ecologically safe solutions.

Every pest control situation is a great opportunity for outreach and engagement. We will encourage, educate and apply ecologically responsible habitat & land management practices for landowners. In this way we imagine Pest and Pollinator LLC to create a more robust and functional network between the pest management and conservation communities. We envision more conversations where they are seldom had in order to create realistic expectations, proactive solutions and safer management strategies. 

Values

We believe that urgent action is needed to address climate change, habitat degradation, loss of biodiversity. Conservation of priceless threatened species and pristine natural resources should be a priority for all. Unfortunately for many industries business as usual often means we are doing more to contribute to these issues than actually fixing them.

Every customer who chooses to work with Pest & Pollinator LLC will be significantly reducing urban pesticide pollution & non-target exposure, promoting healthy native ecosystems and contributing to the development of a better, more regenerative pest management system.

Every customer will be invited to become part of the solution even further by opting for habitat restoration and soil and plant health management. If enough landowners and neighbors enjoy the benefits of a native, biodynamic backyard ecosystems then habitat connectivity will begin to provide natural self-managing services as well as sustainability and climate resilience for the entire community.
