Frequently asked questions about pest control

  • How much does pest control cost?

    There are many factors that determine the cost of pest control, which makes it impossible to give a fixed price for treating each pest.

    The price is determined by factors including:

    • Pest type
    • Extent of the infestation
    • Treatments chosen
    • Number of treatments required
    • Optional monitoring and prevention services
    • Size and type of property

    We will do an initial inspection and present you with a quote and recommendations for your specific pest problem. We will discuss our recommendations and options with you for you to choose the services you want. See more details on our pest control costs page

  • What is the pest control process?

    In Portland, working with your local Western Exterminator pest control specialist all starts with either contacting us via our website or calling our local office.

    Our specialists will schedule a time to provide a free property inspection. We then provide you with the results of that inspection, discuss the pest issues we find and what the recommended treatments are.

    You can then schedule a time for those treatments and any follow up treatments at that time or at a date of your choosing. The specialists will work with you to find the best time to provide the treatments and offer you assistance in preparing for their visit.

  • What is the best way to prevent pest infestations?

    The best way to prevent a pest infestation is to make your home as unappealing to pests as you can. Pests need food, shelter and moisture, so preventing them getting these in your property is a good first step. Maintaining your property so that there are no routes of access is also important. Check out our pest pages for advice on detecting and preventing pests, such as rodents, termites and ants.

    However, knowing what pests might find attractive about your property and where the weak points are can be a challenge. This may need professional help.

    The best way to find out how to stop pests is to contact your local Western Exterminator office and discuss pest prevention methods. Ultimately, signing up for a pest prevention program can save you money in the long run.

    Check out our Pestfree365 service to keep you home free from over 36 of the most common household pests all year long.

  • Do you offer green pest control?

    Yes we do. We know natural pest control is a priority in the Portland area, and we seek to use environmentally-friendly methods that are safe for both humans and pets.

    Western Exterminator was one of the earliest adopters of “biorational” materials (lower risk of adverse effects) and we use integrated pest management techniques, which emphasise prevention and environmentally friendly methods.

  • How do I get rid of bed bugs?

    Bed bugs are one of the most common pest problems in Portland. People inadvertently pick them up while travelling when the tiny insects crawl into clothing or luggage from an infested room. They are then carried into other hotels, apartments and homes where they crawl around at night to seek blood meals and places to shelter.

    For businesses, it is essential to have a monitoring program to detect bed bugs as early as possible before an infestation spreads. New bed bugs can be brought into your property at any time and they can quickly find places to hide and breed.

    Once you detect an infestation it is important to thoroughly inspect your property to establish the extent of the infestation. There are many places where bed bugs can hide. Our specialists are highly trained to inspect a property and determine the best available treatments.

    There are a number of treatments available to eradicate all the life stages of bed bugs, including non-chemical and chemical treatments.

    Check out our bed bug pages for more advice on detection and treatments to eliminate bedbugs.

    If you need help now, call us at 800-937-8398 to speak to one of our pest control professionals or contact us online.

Bed bug control in Portland, OR

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 online or call us at 800-937-8398 today to arrange a visit from one of our pest control specialists to inspect your property and provide a free estimate for eliminating bed bugs.

Carpenter ant exterminator in Portland, OR

The Portland, OR area is just the right kind of environment for carpenter ants. These wood-destroying insects can cause serious damage to wooden structures and cost you a lot of money in repairs.

You may not realize you have them at first. Signs of carpenter ants include insect chewing sounds, wood shavings, or small holes in wood structures. Fortunately, Western Exterminator has local Portland carpenter ant professionals who can help.

Carpenter ants do not eat wood like termites do. They tunnel into it to make their nests, 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.

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.
