Portland pest control company removes rats
"The last time I had rats, I tried catching them in a rat trap and letting them go so I didn't have to kill them, but I only caught about five, and I had hundreds," Dolan says. "I looked on Angie's List and found Affordable Pest Control. I saw 'affordable' and thought, 'That sounds good!'"

Description of work "Joe [Daley, the co-owner] gave me an estimate for getting rid of rats in my backyard and under my deck. He and his son, Matt [Daley, the co-owner], placed traps with peanut butter, but when they returned the next week to check their box traps, my dog had moved them, chewed them and interrupted the process. Joe took the box traps, screwed them to cement blocks and brought them back. The dog left them alone when he couldn't move them. Joe caught the rats and disposed of them over the next month."
Member Comments "He didn't charge me for the unsuccessful time that my dog interrupted. He charged $200, with a $25 Angie's List discount. Joe and Matt are honest, reliable and got the job done without trying to scare me into unnecessary services, as other pest control companies have done in the past. I recommended him to my neighbor. I'll use Affordable Pest Control if the rats come back as they seem to do every couple years, due to a big field behind our home."
