We found a hole in our roof. We were afraid squirrels had chewed through. We called this company and they came out promptly. Upon a thorough inspection owner Brandon found no evidence of squirrels in our attic. The inspection was free, and our piece of mind is priceless.
Very impressed with Brandon and his company!

Noah kills it. Literally. I have a phobia of rodents and Get Smart was recommended to me by a friend. I’m so grateful. A father and son who know their business and do it well. I can’t recommend enough. They came in with a plan, got right to it, and my problem is gone. Thanks guys.

Brandon and his team are absolutely AMAZING!!!

At the end of November 2021, I discovered a horrific problem in our basement. RATS. I tried to convince myself that it was not a big deal. We tackled the problem on our own for a month, until I started doing research. After realizing this was not one or two rats running around, a family friend of mine told me about Get Smart Rat Solutions. I called Brandon and he came to assess how bad our problem was. After placing cameras around the basement and looking around, Brandon discovered there were three generation of rats living and burrowed in our crawl space with tunnels throughout the basement, including multiple nests with babies, throughout our backyard. To my absolute shock, these rats had been occupying the crawl space for more than five years!

To say the least, I was disgusted and completely devastated. Brandon assured me he could handle the problem and help make sure the rats did not come back into the basement. After clearing out the entire basement, Brandon started his process. From start to finish this process took about two months. Once Brandon saw there was little to no trace of rats, he and his sons came in and worked their magic! They completely sanitized, cleaned, filled tunnel access, and laid down a plastic barrier in the crawl space. I felt so much relief going in the basement and seeing how clean it was after the disgusting mess the rats left.

I signed up for the ongoing monthly maintenance and not one rat has returned to the basement and that has been well over a year ago.

I cannot be more grateful for Brandon and his team. The moment I met them, I knew they were good people with our best interest in mind. They genuinely cared. Which, in my opinion, speaks volumes when you’re dealing with such an uncomfortable situation.

Thank you, a million times over, Brandon!!!! 😊

Get Smart Rat Solutions is the company you want to hire to solve your rodent or ant problem! We live out in the country and so we just thought it was the norm to have to live with mouse droppings around our house..in our kitchen cupboards and our bedroom closets! Well, I was wrong! I was at a family Christmas party and and I overheard someone say that they had had Get Smart Rat Solutions out to their house because they were dealing with mouse droppings. I listened in on their conversation and when they were done I asked Brandon about some things at our house. I told him we currently had an extermination company coming out quarterly because we had a bad ant problem, they had gotten it under control by spraying the exterior of our house. Brandon asked if we would be willing to give his company a try… and see if the ants and rodents would go away with the methods his company used. We decided to give his company a try. We called his wife Amber the next day to make an appointment. Amber was professional and pleasant to talk to and she got us in right away! Brandon was out later that week to do an thorough inspection of our house including taking cameras up into our attic and leaving them there for a week to see where the mice were running back and forth and into our kitchen cupboards. He also set up boxes with bait in them around the outside of our house and in different places around the inside of our house. He told us he would send someone back in about a week to check the boxes and refill them. He was so thorough and so informative! We leaned so much about rats, mice and ants than we ever knew or wanted to know! Our next visit was from Noah, Brandon’s son who also works for the company. Noah was very pleasant, a fast worker , but he was very efficient and was very knowledgeable and explained to us what was happening when we were surprised when he found all of the bait boxes empty! Noah filled the bait boxes back up again and explained how it worked again…because Brandon had done that a week ago, but of course we forgot! Noah didn’t get frustrated with us, but instead he took the time to explain what would happen and how the process works. Noah told us someone would be out in a few weeks to check the bait in the boxes. This time, Asher, Brandon’s oldest son, came out to help us. Asher also did an amazing job! It’s evident that these kids have listened and watched their dad and have a passion for what they do! Asher was in and out of here in no time! He changed out the bait, answered some of our questions…Asher was also very knowledgeable, which was nice! A few weeks after we noticed the mouse droppings had died down and the problems had gotten better! I then unfortunately noticed ants around our sink and shower in our bathrooms! I immediately called Brandon! He said that they were looking for water. He was on it and came out and took care of it! I told him that our old exterminator would spray around the perimeter of the house every 3 months. Brandon said that they should never be using any chemicals around or near your house. He said his company doesn’t use any chemicals to control pests. We haven’t seen 1 ant since he was out here to take care of the problem! We told Brandon back in December that we would give his company a try, we have since cancelled our old extermination company and we are saving $400 a year with our yearly contract that we have with Get Smart Rat Solutions! So, if you are looking for an honest company who is reliable, well priced, professional, family owned and run then I would say get smart and go with Get Smart Rat Solutions you won’t be disappointed!

Get Smart has been an amazing blessing since we first started using them like 5 years ago. My husband was away hunting when I found that mice were making a home in my minivan thanks to our neighbors extensive garden that’s as bringing them in. I legitimately panicked. They came and not only dealt with my minivan but also our entire property, they come back and continue to provide amazing service. Their experience and expertise really improves the outcome. I’m incredibly thankful to continue to share great things about them.

These guys were great, they got a small dog size rat and quick and they responded so quickly, everyone else kept wanting me to take an appointment for days later, really nice too

These guys know rats so well, you'll be tempted to check for a tail. They've been extremely helpful, honest, and reliable, servicing over a dozen units for us in the Portland area, including rentals and our own home. Rats are just "a thing," everyone gets them, and knowing you have someone great to call when it happens makes everything easier.

Brandon is a open and honest guy. He will look you in the eye and tell you the truth! I will highly recommend his service over any other pest control service. He is not out to get your money like other pest control companies. Brandon want to do the job and do the job right! His inspection is free, while other company’s will charge you over $100 to inspect , when you already know the problem. It’s like you know you need brake pads for your car, why pay the mechanic to tell you what you need . At times he can get busy, but when he say he’s going to be there, he will be on time and ready to work . His communication is top notch and Amber is on his side to inform you if there’s an issue .

I HIGHLY recommend Get Smart! So I advise you to get Smart about using this company.

Brandon was AMAZING. I called in a panic at 7:00pm the night before Thanksgiving after hearing something strange in my bathroom and seeing a rat emerge from my toilet! I had seen this in movies but didn’t realize it was something that actually happens. Brandon was at my place within an hour and a half (I called after hours - the night before a holiday - an hour and a half is SO FAST).

Brandon was extremely professional and explained how he was going to remove the rat and why he was doing the things he was doing to prevent this from happening again. I’m still traumatized (I’m terrified of rats) but he helped to put my mind at ease by giving me a ton of tips to prevent any kind of rat intrusion again, and also explained the psychology and physiology behind the conditions that would lead a rat to climb/swim through the sewer into someone’s home. Brandon also did a walk through of my entire condo (he even pulled out my stove to check for access points/droppings/conditions that could lead to another uninvited rat) and went down into the basement, and walked the perimeter, and gave recommendations about sealing potential access points, and explained why the rat traps our building is using are not as effective as they could be (not in a salesy way - he didn’t try to sell me additional services, he just wanted to make sure that I knew how to best protect myself).

I expected him to show up, grab the rat and be out the door in five minutes - but he was a true professional and far exceeded my expectations.

I hope to never have a need for his services again, but I am SO happy to know exactly who to call should I ever need anything rodent related.

Great company! They don’t take advantage of customers and are respectful, polite and accommodating! The owner came today for our monthly visit and could have charged me for a service I didn’t really need, but didn’t! Not many times do you hear of people not charging when they get the chance. It’s very obvious that he cares about the customers first and money second. The video he posted in June is very true to how he and his employees run their business. I HIGHLY recommend this company for your pest needs.

Professional, knowledgeable, efficient, thorough and prompt service by the entire team. Despite an unpleasant problem of raccoons, mice, and ants all taking up residency on our property, Get Smart Rat Solutions has environmentally sound answers to each critter problem. Grateful to have this local resource so readily available.

Sue BialostoskySue Bialostosky

Am very impressed with this company. Not often do you run into a company that is this professional, honest, offers fair prices, and guarantees their work. Had a problem with raccoons under my house, they were able to handle it in a way that I was very happy with, no complaints about having to crawl under the house, arrived on time (even planned to show up during a hail storm until I called them and suggested we reschedule!) Also they are very knowledgeable about the animals they deal with and besides that, they are a family owned, local company.

Brandon has serviced both our homes in Camas and Wilsonville. He is super knowledgeable and dependable. His prices are fair and very competitive. He isn’t afraid to go underneath houses into the creepy crawl spaces to check out what goes on in those dark areas! If you are in need a pest control be sure and give Brandon a call!

Brandon Clark was hired to eliminate rat problems at our Portland home and our home at the beach. He is extremely knowledgeable in rat behavior and the science behind eliminating rats from living spaces. He began by explaining how he was going to train the rats away from my house over the course of a year. He then eliminated the rats in the crawl space and secured the entry points. Brandon and his son Asher removed all the rat-soiled insulation from the crawl space and acid washed the wood to remove the scent so the rats don’t return. We have not had any return of the rats to our crawl space in the past year. We have had problems with rats at this house for 30 years! Their crawl space work was impressive and the entire area was left very clean. Brandon and Asher are great people to work with. They are friendly and approachable and do what they say they will do. Prices are reasonable too.

At the beach house, they did the same plan for rat mitigation, but noticed severe carpenter ant damage in the house foundation. Brandon and Asher brought this to our immediate attention and developed a plan to eliminate the rats and carpenter ants, reroute and eliminate standing water under the house and replace the rotten posts and beams. This was a difficult task as many cubic yards of dirt and debris had to be removed from under the house and you cannot stand up in the area. Their prices for the work were extremely reasonable and the crawl space looks amazing! The rats and ants are gone too.

When we realized that rats were dying under our house, we knew we needed help. We called on Brandon at Get Smart Rat Solutions. He looked around our crawl space and reported that many rats had been making their home there. Brandon brought his team and did a thorough job of cleaning out our crawl space and disinfecting and spraying the whole area. They sealed off all existing access points to keep the rats out.

We were very pleased with Brandon’s prompt response and businesslike approach. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in pest control. We are pleased to recommend Brandon and his team.

I’ve been working with Brandon for several years and I’m so pleased with his work. I was having an epic rat infestation in both my yard and basement /crawlspace. I had tried other pest control companies and also had exhausted all of my DIY tricks. It was very traumatizing!

I contacted Brandon on a friends referral. He and Asher came out and did a comprehensive clean up of my basement, including removing years of hormones that attracted other rats. They also put wire all around my house ensuring rats could not get in. This has truly been life-changing. I live in North Portland and feel confident that I am receiving the best service possible. Brandon really knows his business and clearly is taking the extra measure to research and understand the habits of rats (and humans) that can influence rat Populations. Lastly, I really like him and Asher, as people . Super friendly, easy to talk to, and very accommodating.
