Portland Pest Control Reviews

No More Wasps!

"We had hornets swarming above the back door. We called Western and, within 20 minutes, a technician was there. He noticed they were swarming around the garage too so he treated there and above the door. Very reasonable price and I'm happy!"
- Peggy M.

Operations Manager - Portland, OR

I've had the pleasure of working for Western Exterminator Company for nearly 5 years. My experience in the pest control industry spans over 25 years. One of my favorite parts about the job is having the opportunity to work with customers and help solve and prevent their issues.

Bed Bug Control Portland

Bed bugs are tiny nocturnal insects that feed on blood. They prefer to sneak out of their hiding places and feed on humans. They often feed multiple times a night on the same person, leaving a neat row or arrangement of red bite marks come morning.

The tricky part about bed bugs in Portland, OR, is that they are hard to see and even harder to get rid of. That's because bed bugs can hide almost anywhere in a room. It only takes missing a couple of bed bugs with a treatment for a brand new infestation to break out. Western Exterminator is Portland's local expert in bed bug control, removal and prevention.

Contact us today and set up a property inspection to get rid of bed bugs on your Portland property.

Carpenter Ant Control Portland, OR

Carpenter ants are not quite like termites. Termites actually eat wood in order to survive. Carpenter ants destroy wood by burrowing into it, creating a network of tunnels for their nests and to nurture eggs and raise their young. Carpenter ants shove the wood shavings and sawdust out of the holes they create. Many customers do not become aware of carpenter ants until they notice rotted-away wood.

The Portland, OR, area is just the right kind of environment for carpenter ants. You may not realize you have them - at first. Signs of carpenter ants include chewing sounds, wood shavings, or small holes in wood structures. The wood-destroying insects can do serious damage to wooden structures and cost you a lot of money in repairs. Fortunately, Western Exterminator has local Portland carpenter ant professionals who can help.

Contact us today and tell us about the signs of carpenter ants you have seen. We'll get a pest specialist out to inspect your property and confirm the infestation. Western Exterminator will remove carpenter ants and provide methods and advice to ensure they don't come back to do more damage.
