Nature First Pest Control Portland Oregon
Pest Control Services for Portland Area Homes and Businesses
Eco-Effective GreenPro Certified Pest Control Services
Pest Control Company in Portland Oregon using Sustainable, Organic, Natural and Green methods to safely exterminate pests.
27 Years ago, we named our company Nature First Pest Control because we knew that our Portland friends and neighbors were looking for a green and more organic choice in pest control services. We took a different path than the rest of the industry. While there were many commercial accounts that required long term programs with monthly visits, most homeowners in the Portland area really did not need that type of service. The treatment methods that were the industry standard in most of the country were literally overkill for pest control in Portland. We embraced the idea that spraying anything is always the last step in a thoughtful process that starts with asking the right questions. First we identify, and when possible, fix the environmental reasons for your pest problem. On this site you will find dozens of conditions discussed that contribute to, or directly cause, insect and rodent problems. You will find that we are knowledgeable, helpful, and patient when we give you information and advice about your situation.
Safe Pest Control Services For Portland
When necessary to protect you, your pets and property, we may use products that are on the “Low Impact Pesticide List” and the “Reduced Risk List”. The pest control industry has made huge advances in the safety and efficacy of products approved for home use. We now know so much more about the biology and relationships between insects, rodents, and the eco systems that we are all a part of. As an example, building a home on what was a bare field, creates a micro climate that encourages some pests, and discourages others.
Our Natural Pest Control Treatment Process
Every property we service is unique, and so is our pest treatments. If you see a pest truck drive up with a big tank and spray rig, you can bet that almost all their customers get the same spray, in the same concentrations, in the same ways. That is very efficient and cost saving, to the other company. Our equipment of choice is a one-gallon hand sprayer, not two hundred gallons of the same mix for everyone.
We don’t believe in laying down chemical barriers
If we spray the foundation of your house, we do not want to force the insects that are already inside to stay inside. We will use products on your foundation that the insects will not detect. Insects freely walk across our treated areas. In this way we achieve a much bigger impact on insect populations than with traditional treatments. And, with a lot less product use.
Pest Management Services
Common sense is the most valuable tool in natural pest control, and it isn’t so common. You must be a detective to be a good pest control technician in this area. A one size fits all approach is not sufficient here.
Wasp, Hornet and Yellow Jacket Control
Fall in Oregon brings out the most aggressive behavior from bees and wasps. These nests are at their largest and the workers and guards are very aggressively defending their territories. Wasps are traveling long distances to hunt for protein to raise new queens for next year. These yellow jacket queens will hide over winter and start totally new nests next year. Destroying wasp nests now will prevent some new nests near that location next year.
We have observed two new pest invaders arrive in Portland over the past 27 years. Odorous house ants have invaded to the extent that they have displaced most of the native carpenter ant species. These pests are hard to control, and they require a whole green approach for ant pest control to exterminate them. When you call Nature First for ant control, we tend to ask a lot of questions. We do the detective work necessary to protect the environment and minimize the amount of control product we use, and where we use it. Learn more about or ant control solutions here.

Portland Rat Extermination Services
Roof rats arrived in Portland a few years ago and have become a huge issue. Roof rats often use the holes that squirrels have opened on your roof. Removing rats from your Portland area attic can become complicated. Rats usually have access to the entire house when they enter via the roof. We control these pests in your Portland home in a logical sequence designed to avoid making rats trap shy.
Pet Safe Rat Control and Extermination
Rat control requires great detective skills. We often crawl around a house on hands and knees to locate all the rodent entry points. Denying rats an entry to your structures, is the first and most crucial step in eliminating them. This painstaking inspection process helps us provide Eco-Friendly, natural and pet safe rat control and pest extermination.
We are the only Portland Exterminators to guarantee the results for one year!
We offer “NO POISON” total rodent control with long term warranties. We never put poison bait boxes around your house. This is a temporary band aid to a much more serious problem. We use contraceptives, instead of poisons, combined with a new humane trap system to control the rodent population explosion.
Stay away from any pest control company that puts out bait and assures you that the rodents will leave your house and go to water. This is total BS. We use no bait. We seal the entry points, trap the invaders.

Crawl Space Cleaning and Rodent Exclusion Guaranteed
We offer crawl space cleaning and repair services for our customers who have discovered that rats and mice have damaged their crawlspaces and attics. Nature First always inspects the attic of a home with a rodent problem. We know that a rodent invasion in the basement makes it likely that we will find the attic insulation has also been damaged.
