About Nature First Pest Control in Portland

“There has to be a better way”

That was my comment after a short time in the Pest Control Business.

My Name is Randy and I founded Nature First Pest Control in 1991. The book ‘Silent Spring’ was a best seller at the time, and I was fortunate to be in the Pacific Northwest where an awakening about the environment was occurring. I came across another book that changed my life. Common Sense Pest Control by William Quarrels. Mr. Quarrels is one of the founders of the Bio Integral Resource Center at U.C. Berkley. http://www.birc.org/

Dr. Quarrels  solid research and innovative methods changed the way I looked at the pest control industry. Integrated Pest Management, I.P.M. for short, was just starting  to be discussed, but not taken seriously, by the pest control industry.

About this tine another great resource group was getting started.
The National Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides in Eugene Or. http://www.pesticide.org/   It was from these, and other resources that I came to develop our ‘Least Toxic’ approach to pest control.

We are Child and Pet friendly. We use a  ‘Less is Better than More’  approach when applying any products including  the ‘Green  products’
We have no large volume spray rigs. We do not spray lawns or flowers or under bird feeders, near compost piles or garden areas.
We can often avoid spraying altogether by recommending some changes to the landscaping and adjoining fences and sheds.

My ‘No Contract Guarantee’ to you is simple. We will solve your problem with efficiency and safety while minimizing any impact on the environment. I am extremely proud of our exemplary  A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. And over 200′ A’ reviews with Angies List.
