Ms. Fortney, a southern California customer says, “Hearts Pest Management really knows their business. Dave took care of my major pest problems. He is a super guy, very pleasant, prompt, and professional. He saved my hedge from the bugs that were threatening it, saving me a ton of money I’d have spent replacing it. He was very knowledgeable and informative about my other pest problems, and he inspires great confidence in his recommendations. He has my complete trust. Thanks, Hearts!” (We have lots more testimonials here).
We are very fortunate to have staff who live garden pest control. We don’t simply treat plants, we learn to know and appreciate them. When we come visit your garden, we come with a smile because we love what we do.
1. Customer-Focused Plan Selection:
Our staff takes special care to ask and listen to the many factors that determine the best treatment plan for you. Factors include your desire for prevention, safety, the micro-climactic conditions conducive to pests, sanitation and infestations in surrounding properties, areas of the yard or acreage to be covered.
Responding to your requests, we offer weekly, monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly plans! Other plans can be tailored to meet your needs.
Our staff will listen, as you describe your daily routines. We work closely with you to determine the best day of the week, best time of day, who needs to be available during treatments, how to circumvent workers and loved ones (children, pets, elderly, pregnant women) during visitations. We will take care of the pests on YOUR schedule.
We respect just how busy you are. We always offer: Set week and day with pre-notification. Time of day arrangements can be made.
We offer pricing to meet your budget. You choose the number of visits and the associated price. We do not lock you into the schedule that is most profitable for the pest control company, as is often the case. You choose what fits your periodic and yearly budget requirements. (Treatment results will vary based on frequency of treatment).
Our goal is to provide added value to the customer, not available anywhere else in the pest control industry.
We look for the brightest and train our technicians to view themselves as consultants. Our â€œconsulting technicians are patient, knowledgeable and ready to provide best-of-practice treatment. Many pest control companies seem to be satisfied to have low trained, low paid, easy-going technicians who spray and go. At Hearts, our technicians are put on a path to achieve higher-level triple certification in structural and landscape pest management, and IPM (integrated pest management).
Ethics is intrinsic to every aspect of our training, from sales to service to teamwork.
Our jobs can be routine, but when our customers need that extra TLC, they get it from someone who cares. Our customers are often surprised how dynamic and not routine our jobs are. Because we are always inspecting, we find the unexpected. When our customers ask us to reach into our bag of in-depth knowledge, they know they can count on us to provide correct and complete answers to their pest problems. And they know we are ready and able to handle the most difficult jobs.
Ultimately, our job is to take studied risks, under all the necessary safeguards, so our customers may enjoy a happier and healthier lifestyle.
Common landscape pests that we treat include:
- gophers and squirrels
- powdery mildew
- white fly and sooty mold
- ants and spiders
- rats and mice
- clover mites, spider mites, assorted mites
These landscape pests should be treated forr the sake of your yard and garden, but many will surprisingly become indoor pests that drive you crazy!
Our broad-spectrum landscape tree and shrub program supplements our basic structural pest program to provide the best all around protection for insect invasion of valuable home and garden space. Our program is designed with careful consideration for the seasonal cycle of trees and shrubs: dormancy, flowering and fruiting, as well as heat, and its effect on treatment.
We can also provide valuable lawn care services that will enhance protection against infestations and result in healthier foliage.
- pruning services
Our pest control service is tailored to your situation, with the flexibility to provide foliar treatments, soil drench treatments, and systemic micro-injection treatments for trees and shrubs.
Before applying pesticides, we will consider factors such as:
- whether your trees and shrubs are fruit baring
- the proximity of trees and shrubs to other property owners
- the urgency of treatment
- desired frequency
Hearts Pest Management is specially certified in the Mauget micro-injection technique.
Many of our customers choose maintenance coverage for gophers, which are a common pest in Southern California. Gophers create extensive economic damage to lawns and gardens from bottom-up, eating massive amounts of root material daily. Exterior maintenance baiting or trapping for rats and squirrels protects gardens from top-down damage, as they love to eat fresh fruit …just before you have a chance to pick it off the tree!
Nowadays, people serious answers about the health risks associated with pest control. Child and pet protection are a serious concern of families, when it comes to yard care. Plans are made with every family to coordinate treatments to protect their loved ones.
Our Focus on Organics program eliminates many concerns, but coordination and partnership with customers is still very important. While our systems for landscape pest management is geared to low impact and organic treatments, specific programs may require higher dosage or toxicity treatments.
All our programs are based on the principle of applying the least amount of pesticide that will effectively do the job.
ll our programs involve a strong focus on site inspection and active monitoring, which is why we complete a specially designed worksite safety evaluation form, to protect all parties for the liabilities and hazards associated with pest control treatments.
California Rabbits and Rabbit Pests
California environmental protection laws prohibit pest control companies from exterminating rabbits. They are a critical part of the food chain and are therefore under special protections. So what can we do? We do offer repellents and we have some recommendations. You can learn more about rabbits and better understand what can be done here:
