Burbank Pest Control

The City of Burbank, CA is most noted for film making. In the early 1900's, the movie industry chose Burbank for its expansive area of available land in which to build studio sets.

Burbank soon became home to large studios like Warner Brothers, Disney, ABC, and many others; including film processing, special effects and related media-type businesses.

Temperatures in inland communities like Burbank can become heat intensive, driving all sorts of pests indoors. Hearts Pest Management is different from most pest control companies in that we specialize in a holistic approach to maintaining a pest-free environment.

For our Green / Organic Pest Control program in Burbank, we encourage a monthly service, at least during the spring and summer months.

Ant Control in Burbank

Ants are a year-round problem for Burbank residents (and businesses).

Monitoring and inspecting your home for ants and locating they entry points is an important part of your Integrated Pest Management Program.

Our certified technicians will be able to search out colonies and identify ant species to determine the right kind of treatment needed. Different species of ants respond to chemicals and management practices separately and need to be treated accordingly.

It’s good to remember that ants play a beneficial role in the garden and environment. Once you become aware of the seasonal cycle of the ants in your area, you can prepare for annual invasions by caulking entry points.

Trimming shrubs and trees away from the home, and keeping moisture at a minimum will also help keep ants at bay. Preparation will make the spring and summer more pleasant – for both humans and ants.

Orb-weavers are beneficial garden spiders that make huge but very intricate webs.

Burbank’s Spider Control

You know the big scary looking spiders that hang out in the middle of those huge, perfectly round, orb webs, the ones that stretch between tree branches?

When we think of spiders, it’s usually an image of an orb-weaver that appears in our minds (or tarantula, thanks to the movie).

Beneficial Spiders

If you can just get past how big they are and look closely at the beautiful webs designed by these miniature architects, you may appreciate what they do for your garden landscape.

Orb weavers come in different colors and sizes and act like little pest control technicians, eliminating pesky garden insects.

Other beneficial spiders include wolf spiders and jumping spiders. They can run and/or jump at a rapid pace to hunt down insects, including the ones in your home.

Not So Beneficial Spiders

There are two spiders of medical importance in southern California, the brown widow and the black widow spider. Both make messy, Halloween-type webs and both have an hourglass shape under their bellies.

Brown widows are easily identifiable by their orange hourglass and cream-colored, spiky egg sacs. This spider tends to build her web under things such as patio furniture, and playground equipment.

Black widow spiders, on the other hand, have a bright red hourglass and create webs in dark corners of eaves, closets, cabinets, windowsills, piles of wood and most especial, cluttered corners of a garage.

Widow spiders need to be eliminated on contact and their egg sacs destroyed. If you have a lot of spiders, it’s because you also have a lot of insects – their food source. Hearts will treat for both spiders and insects plus remove any accessible webs around the perimeter of your home.

In the meantime; here are some of the things homeowners can do to keep spiders from coming indoors:

Caulk any cracks and crannies to keep not only spiders out but ants and mice too.

Sweep at least twice a week, knocking any webs down found in corners and in the garage.

Check under patio furniture; brown widows love hiding under there with their spiky egg sacs.

Let your Hearts Service Professional know where you’ve seen spider activity.

I’ve had a few issues, all different and all at different times, and the staff at Hearts always helped me resolve it. Even when I thought I had tried everything to get rid of an ant problem one time, and a rodent problem another time, the guys at Hearts were able to resolve the issues with a level of expertise and knowledge that you can’t really understand until you see them at work.
