We've worked with Keith since he started, and he's been extremely attentive, kind, and responsive. We've had a few pest control companies over the years, and none of them have effective or personable!

Very happy with the service provided, highly recommended! We had some squirrels getting into a gap behind the gutter of our house. Keith came out quickly, did a thorough inspection of the whole property, placed some steel wool in gaps and set traps. The traps worked as planned and he came back a couple days later and did a great job sealing up the house once we knew they were taken care of.
We were happy to meet with Keith Chaloux, Owner of Pest & Pollinator LLC today. We had noticed an infestation of house ants while working on a remodel. He was prompt in getting back to me after I contacted him yesterday and set up an appointment to come by today. After surveying our property and identifying the area requiring treatment he was able to set bait on the spot! Such great and timely service was much appreciated. Susan B., SE Portland

We reached out to Keith at Pest & Pollinator based on a recommendation from a friend who knew we were dealing with a growing ant invasion. He stopped out, listened, and gave us options for how we wanted to proceed. Keith also checks back in to make sure that what he did actually solved the problem and even came back to reapply and give us a few baited traps should the ants start coming back again later. All in all, great friendly service - we'll definitely be using him again.

We worked with Keith and are grateful for the work he did for us! We had a dead raccoon in our crawlspace that needed to be removed asap. He was professional, able to safely take care of the job same-day and helped scope our property to identify rodent access points to prevent this issue in the future.

About Me

Independent. Locally Owned & Operated. Portland Small Business.

Licensed. Bonded. Insured. Certified.

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 member for Ash Creek Forest Management LLC, he gained valuable hands-on experience with ecology, native plants, and botany.

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. Integrated Pest Management is the method to work with nature to create safe solutions for pest & invasive issues.

In early 2021 he left Pioneer Pest Management to start Pest & Pollinator LLC with a mission to promote habitat restoration in Portland backyards, provide safer, more eco-conscious pest control and to elevate IPM in the pest control industry. In November 2022, Pest & Pollinator became the first Green Shield Certified pest control company in Oregon.

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.
