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 lots we can be doing now to improve ecological & pollinator safety for Portland pest control services.
Let’s change the way we do things.
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, people, kids & pets. We believe in actively promoting sustainable practices, climate resilience, regenerative gardening & the connectivity of native ecosystems 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.
In both the habitat restoration and pest control industries, there are many opportunities to change the status quo. We hope to continually improve current urban nuisance & invasive management practices with our interdisciplinary approach.
Pest & Pollinator LLC is creating a new model of urban pest management that dramatically reduces pesticide usage using IPM. We demonstrate the value of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as the guidelines for the safest AND most effective nuisance species management. We can 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, and provide more ecologically safe options.
Environmental outreach to landowners is a necessary element of residential & commercial pest control. We will encourage and apply ecologically responsible habitat & land management practices. 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.
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 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.
