For more than 30 years, The Bug Man has been treating Portland homes invaded by eight-legged, six-legged, and four-legged pests. We take the time to understand the situation, develop a plan, and make recommendations to keep your home free of pests in the future. We look for long-term solutions, not short-term fixes.
Each situation calls for a different plan of attack. We take the time to talk to our clients, inspect the interior and exterior of the home, and devise a personalized plan. There is no one service that applies to every pest. Spiders differ from bed bugs, which differ from rats and mice.
We are also concerned with the well-being of your home and family. Our integrated pest management services give us the tools to treat your home the right way. Our eco-friendly pest control systems are safe for the environment and safe for you. In some cases, we may not need to use products of any kind.
We understand how difficult it can be to be forced outside of your house for any amount of time. That’s why we developed a system that is safe for you, your family, and even family pets. Our system is designed to create as little disruption to your day to day life as possible.
However, there may be times a certain product may be harmful to pets that are free to roam around the house. We will alert you to where those products are how to keep your pets from coming into contact with them. That’s why a whole-home inspection is needed: So we can devise the best plan for your situation.
Although nobody wants to be inundated with bugs and other pests, it is not The Bug Man’s desire to kill everything in the vicinity of your home. What we want to do is make your home inhospitable to the creepy crawlies.
This has more to do with what you can do in and out of the home to prevent bugs or rodents from making a home in your home. For example, if you have an open bag of dog or cat food in your pantry, that’s an all-you-can-eat buffet for some insects and mice.
Instead, put the pet food in a container with a lid so it’s not exposed. On the outside of the house, we’ll let you know of potential problem areas. Perhaps you have trees that overhang the house or bushes that are growing right up to the siding of your home.
These give easy access for pests to find ways into your home. For Portland area pest and rodent control, it’s more than just spraying chemicals and hoping for the best. Along with these external and internal steps, we use 100% EPA certified products to help control the pests already in the home.
We understand all of the good insects do for the ecology of the Pacific Northwest. But we also understand that a trail of ants on your kitchen counters can be quite alarming. Once they find a food supply, they’re more than happy to make a home. We’re here to serve them with environmentally friendly eviction papers.
The Bug Man services include single and multi-family residences and commercial buildings, schools, food-processing facilities, and more.
