To Whom It May Concern:
I have been using the American Extermination Plus, Inc. company for a little over a year now. Our ant problem had been going strong for a couple of years before we called for help. During the course of our first year, I watched Cody, our American Extermination service person, go above and beyond the call of duty in an effort to try an eradicate the infestation in our home. He has always been extremely polite and thoughtful in our home, as well as informative with the measures he was using. I have left Cody alone several times to spray around our home and his level of professionalism and integrity are something I am very much impressed with. When Cody felt he needed a fresh pair of eyes on our exceptionally bad ant infestation, he called his supervisor, Larry, in to brainstorm new ways to combat our problem. Both gentleman have shown me what true customer service is all about. I would not hesitate to recommend American Extermination Plus, Inc. to family and friends and have passed out brochures to my neighbors hoping they too would use this outstanding company.

Our Technicians participate in on-going educational opportunities through the Oregon Pest Control Association and from our product suppliers, as new treatment procedures and products are introduced we are always looking for ways to improve the service we provide. Keeping up to date with regulatory changes is important so customers can be confident that we value them and want to keep them safe.
American Extermination Plus, Inc. performs thorough inspections before talking about treatment programs and prices. The pest inspection is essential to solving pest problems and in determining the type of pest management services needed. Many details are considered before a treatment plan and cost for services can be determined. Protective and corrective measures must be integrated into treatments to keep pests from causing significant problems. Once the Pest Control Professional has an idea of the measures and cautions needed to treat an infestation they will be able to provide an appropriate recommendation for treatment and a quote for the service. This method emphasizes inspection, detection, correction, and protection using low – impact pesticides applied in a manner that minimizes exposure and risk to non-target areas. IPM is an environmentally sensitive way of managing pests. Nonchemical treatments, proper sanitation and pest-proofing will increase the success of pest management programs and treatments.
The initial treatment is the most comprehensive treatment targeting pests where they live. After this we may perform regular service on monthly or quarterly scheduled follow up visits to monitor and provide additional treatment as needed. It is also possible to have service between scheduled visits by calling our office. It is important to have 30 days between any treatment to allow the products time to work. You may cancel your program at any time after the first year, we ask that you please do so in writing and allow 30 days advanced notice. This can be done by sending a letter through the mail or by sending an email to our office with the appropriate information. Although we hope that you will continue your program we understand that circumstances change. Reminder postcards are mailed to inform you of upcoming service, allowing you time to schedule an appointment for indoor service as needed. We encourage setting these appointments, using this time to communicate to the technician what you have noticed and where. This is helpful information used to solve your pest issue. If indoor service is not scheduled we will perform outdoor service and no appointment is necessary.
We offer four service plans to meet your extermination needs. Every situation is evaluated by a state licensed and company certified technician. After a thorough inspection, the technician will develop a treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
(Each Service covers listed pests only)

Using the Safest Products Available
Though we have committed to using the safest products available no pesticide is entirely safe and each person’s level of risk tolerance is different. Every pesticide is toxic if the exposure level is high enough. Minimizing the amount of pesticide used and selecting lower toxicity products reduces exposure helping to minimize the hazards associated with using pesticides. Experiencing health problems from a pesticide depends on the toxicity of the pesticide and the amount of exposure. The EPA has an article about the level of risk and I recommend reading this to gain better understanding about pesticides and the risk levels assigned to them. The pesticide label reflects research and information with the proper procedure for applying products, in what mixture, how much and where it is legal to place the product. This is information that pest professional’s must know. Using these products responsibly in combination with Integrated Pest Management is a commitment American Extermination Plus, Inc made the day we opened and still make today.
Environmentally friendly or safe
Please don’t be fooled by claims that “products are environmentally friendly or environmentally safe” The very nature of pest control, in and around the residential homes and commercial establishments, must alter the environment to create an area that is not open to occupation by unwanted pests. If applied properly, low-impact pesticide applications will not hurt the larger environment and will only effect the immediate area of treatment. We do this in a manner that does not do serious damage to the environment and as mandated by the Federal authorities. In some cases, we can alter the environment with no sprays at all such as door sweeps, caulking, spider sweeps, traps, and other methods.
