About The Killers

The Killers was founded in the spring of 1982, and since then, their philosophy has always been total pest elimination, not pest control. Our goal has always been to provide the best service available and to do what’s right for the customer while taking the environment into consideration.

Rick Bock purchased his first two offices in 1991 which are located in Salem and Newport. He has worked hard to successfully reach his goal of offering customers the best service around.  Rick hired Matthew White in the fall of 1994 where by Matt started inspecting homes and setting up services for customers. After a lot of hard work, Rick was able to purchase the Portland Metro offices in home-bottom1995. In the spring of 1996, Matt was promoted to Manager of the Portland offices and Head of Operations in 2001.

Rick and Matt have helped develop some of the best people in our industry with their hands-on approach and continued training. Rick and Matt’s principles are, and have always been, to provide superior service and to use the best products available.

The Killers has continued to grow every year and we credit this to the efforts of our great staff and their willingness to strive to be the best in our industry.

Rick and Matt are now co-owners of The Killers. With our staff and over 4000 customers believing in us, Rick will be retiring after 20+ years in the industry. With Rick’s anticipated retirement, it was necessary to fill the manager position at our Newport office.

Our pest control company was founded on the principles of:

  • Pest Elimination (not control)
  • Safety In Products
  • Properly Executed Inspections
  • Quality Service

Pest Control Portland

Pest Control Where Pests are Eliminated

Rather than simply control pests on your property in Portland, we make sure the pests are completely eliminated. At The Killers, we handle a wide variety of different pests, taking care to remove them from your home or office in Portland and ensure that they do not return. When you call us for your pest control, you are getting over 30 years of dedicated service in the Portland area.

Having operated in the Northwest for that length of time, our technicians have the expertise to deal with any type of infestation. We fully inspect your premises and discover the location of any infected areas. From there, we determine the best course of action for your unique problem.

Being able to identify the specific insects and rodents that live in the greater Portland area and knowing their hiding places and habits allows The Killers’ exterminators to design a specific pest control plan that will thoroughly eliminate the infestation.

These pest control plans ensure you get the right one for your concerns as well as your budget.

We are proud of our company and proud of the work that we do. We look after our customers while also being sensitive to the natural environment. When you need pest elimination you can count on, call The Killers.

  • Hi Killers, thank you for working with me on my pest problem. Having customers in the restaurant seeing pest problems isn't good. Keep up the great job.
  • Paul, Thank you for coming to spray the back of the house. We appreciate the superior work you do.
  • My service with the killers has been great. I would recommend them to anyone that needs a pest service.
  • Wanted to let you all know that Paul did an amazing job on the ants at my home. It's good to have a company that really cares.
  • Paul is an awesome tech and does an amazing job on our pests. I hope it's possible for him to always be our service tech.
  • Thank you for treating our house for ants and spiders. I noticed a big difference the next day and now it's been a week and what a difference. Victor did a great job and was very personable and a great person to represent your company. I would recommend you to any of my clients.
  • Gus did a great job at our house the other day. I wanted to let you know that Gus was amazing at killing the bugs and interacting with the kids as I have a daycare. You have a great employee there.
  • Hello there, I recently had your company out to our house for termites and other bugs. I've seen your trucks and thought they were funny. I'm glad I didn't shop around because you guys did a great job. Paul was very pleasant to talk to and took care of our pest problem. Thank you, Tracy Beadles
  • Gus stopped by to check on how our pests were doing without even us having to call. He's a great tech and my wife said he always does a amazing job.
  • Dear Killers, I'm writing this to let you know how much we appreciate the job Paul did underneath our home. It was not an easy task but he got in there and took care of it.
  • Kyle, Marge called to say that you did an exceptional job yesterday. She said that she hasn’t seen the ants since you treated for them so she wanted you and your boss to know. Great job!
  • Called in to compliment Randal. Mr. Vandehey is a licensed pest applicator for his job and says it is obvious that Randal knows what is doing. He was extremely impressed with how professional and thorough he was. Kudos to Randal!
  • Hey Randle, Great Job. Always nice when you have a peer give you kudos. Great job!
