The Best in Pest Control
Jackson Exterminators is an honest, family-owned business that has proudly served the Portland metro area since 1973. The person you speak with on the phone will be the one who shows up at your door. We are committed to our customers and have a long-standing knowledge of Oregon's peskiest pests. You can rely on us to respond in a quick, friendly and efficient manner with pest solutions that are healthy for your family, your business and the environment.
We won't ever sell you anything you don't need. Our goal is to help you eliminate your pest problems, both in the immediate and the long-term. Our commitment is to you.
Covid-19 may now be a part of our vocabulary and none of us have become "experts" overnight. We will continue to follow Homeland Security, CDC and WHO guidelines and use common sense to do what is right around you, your family and the general public. As we face today's new challenges, we will keep to our mission to help protect the health and safety of our community and our customers. During this crisis, we are taking every precaution we can to mitigate the risks to you and to us. We will be performing exterior defensive services whenever possible and will leave insect bait stations to be used inside as needed. For those that must have interior service, we will increase our PPE by including shoe covers, a respirator as needed and keep a safe distance while inside your home or establishment. We will not send anyone to your home or establishment that is sick, and we ask that if anyone is sick we can either reschedule or cancel the appointment.

It all came down to a coin toss. Dick Jackson wanted to leave his corporate job and start his own business, but because of a non-compete clause, he and his family needed to move at least 400 miles away. Having family on both coasts, they couldn't decide where to go. Heads meant West and tails meant East. Heads it was.
In 1973, Dick moved his family from Waterloo, Iowa, to Portland, Oregon, and began Jackson Pest Control, which became Jackson Exterminators, Inc. (JEI) in 1994. Dick sold the business in 2006 to his son John Jackson, who currently owns and operates JEI.
Jackson Exterminators serves the Portland and Vancouver, Washington, metro areas and provides expert pest control solutions tailored to each customer's needs.
Safe, Environmentally Responsible
Historically, pest management solutions have included a high proportion of chemical sprays. As technology has improved and customers have demanded less toxic measures, Jackson Exterminators has responded. We are highly trained and experienced in the use of effective but minimally invasive products. We strive to solve pest problems in environmentally sound ways through bait, trap and enzyme treatments. If necessary, we will use appropriate chemical measures. Our commitment to safe and environmentally friendly practice is a cornerstone of our company.
