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.

What’s Making Noise in my Walls?

  • If you’re hearing noises in the attic; mice, roof rats, Norway rats, birds, bats, fox squirrels, Douglas squirrels, and Eastern gray squirrels are frequent intruders. If you hear noises in the walls, it is likely a rat or mouse.
  • In crawlspaces and other areas, Norways rats & house mice are common invaders with raccoons & opossums a close second.
  • Occasionally rabbits, California ground squirrels, Douglas squirrels and even chipmunks visit peoples’ crawlspaces through damaged foundation vents.

Although each of these animals have territorial behaviors, it is actually fairly common for two pest animal species to occur in the same house. To properly diagnose and treat animal pest issues, you may need inspection & monitoring by a trained wildlife control professional.

Try the Knock Test

Next time you hear the noise in the ceiling, try giving a few loud knocks on the wall closeby. If the noise suddenly stops, this may indicate a rodent pest like rats or mice. If the noise only stops for a moment, then continues or doesn’t stop at all, it’s more likely a squirrel or larger wildlife. This method can give us some idea of what kind of animal control might need to be done.

Natural Wildlife Repellents

Most urban wildlife has evolved alongside us long enough that they’re mostly used to all the smells we are. For this reason, natural animal repellents with garlic, chili, peppermint, ultra-sonic devices, or even pet odors & predator urines seem to be partially- or non-effective. Fearless urban wildlife may not even be deterred by hazing with loud noise or lights.

Friendly + Proffesional.

Rodent & Wildlife Control Facts &  Tips

  • Regularly inspect your foundation vents, mud sill & dormer corners for chewing or other evidence of rodent & wildlife damage.
  • Enclose compost bins & chicken coops on all sides to prevent issues with animal pests. Bring pet food dishes inside at night.
  • Eastern gray squirrels and fox squirrels are invasive species from the East coast.
  • Invasive squirrels can replace our native species; Douglas and Western gray squirrels in less than 10 years where they’re introduced.
  • Rats are predators of mice, so a mouse in the walls might mean it’s avoiding a rat that moved into the attic or crawlspace.
