Gerry Weitz, Hearts Pest Management President and Owner – Hard at work!

Origins and Perspective

Gerry Weitz worked in senior management at two of the best run American companies, ADP and Ernst and Young.

When the dot.com crash of 2001 caused Gerry to reassess his career, he drew on his experience with these best of breed companies.

He was also able to utilize his prior experience in human resources and from his earlier life, farming.

Once he saw a small pest control company with potential, Gerry consolidated his life experiences around a new venture in pest control.

He evolved a philosophy of pest control unique to the industry, creating the “Consulting” pest control technician, trained to provide added-value, to “Continuously Improve the Way it’s Done!”

Hearts Pest Management became the first EcoWise Certified company in southern California in 2006, demonstrating leadership and determination to better the profession and service.

In our devotion to our employees, we seek to be the Starbucks of pest control, with the best benefits and the best career programs, ultimately creating a consulting pest control staff passionately concerned with fulfilling your every expectation. The San Diego Union-Tribune recognized us for this devotion in:


Pest Control Company “A Good Buzz” Written by the San Diego Union-Tribune

Growth and expansion has enabled us to be a major presence in the Southern California pest control marketplace.

As of January 2012, we have grown well over 1000% since inception in January 2002. Our company has strived to retain the personal touch of a small entity in relations with customers and employees, while striving for excellence and consistency of service as the organization expands.
