Toxic and Harmless Spiders

In the Glendale area, Black and Brown Widow spiders are the only spiders of medical importance.

They are toxic to humans but usually only bite if threatened or accidentally crushed next to human skin.

Black Widow Spider

Black widows spiders are toxic to humans; note the red "hourglass."

Black Widows tend to like dark corners and will only bite if they get caught next to one's skin and/or feel threatened.Other spiders such as orb-weavers, jumping spiders, and common grass (funnel-weaver) spiders are harmless and beneficial for the garden and landscape.

Some are hunters like the jumping spider that seek out their prey and others like the orb-weaver and grass spider use a 'sit-and-wait" technique to obtain their meals.

Brown Widows are easily identified by their cream-colored, spiky egg sacs and an orange hourglass. This widow likes to hide under things like patio furniture.

For the most part, other spiders found around the home and landscape are fairly harmless; their spider mouth parts are too small to penetrate human skin but they "help" by eating garden insects that destroy leaves, flowering plants, and vegetables.

Grass spiders make sheet-like webs with tunnels.

Grass Spidersunlike black and brown widows that hide, grass spiders make their webs right out in the open, all over the landscape.

Grass spider webs are easily observed in the spring and summer, especially after an early morning dew.

The female makes the web and waits patiently within the funnel portion until an insect gets tangled in the upper, sheet-like area, then she scurries out to bite and paralyze its victim.

Since the grass spider's mouth parts are so small, she can only penetrate small insects, not humans!

Pest Control for Spiders

Black and brown widows eat a variety of insects and can be controlled by treating their food source – either with traditional pesticides or organic methods. It’s important to web dust frequently, especially during summer.

Widow spiders are solitary and like to hide in dark, undisturbed places. Females not only produce about 300 eggs per sac, they can store sperm to create up to 10 egg sacs over several months, that’s 3000 spiderlings a year!

Hearts Pest Management professionals are experts at finding widow hiding places and eliminating them on contact. Our technicians will also web dust any webs found around the perimeter of your home or business.

Ant Control in Glendale

Summers in Glendale are very warm (by Californian standards) and in the winter, the evenings can be quite cold.

During spring and summer, ants start marching into homes, not one by one but colony by colony! The most common ant species and a problem for Californians is the invasive Argentine ant.

Argentine ants are hard to control with do-it-yourself methods because they can move their colonies within hours to either escape when threatened or take advantage of a new food source. This species has more than one queen and will often break off into multiple colonies.

Did you know that ants spread diseases such as salmonella and staph? They can spread these diseases throughout your home when they come inside in search of food and water!

The most effective pest control and permanent solution is to find and treat the Argentine ant nest. Queen Argentine ants must be eliminated to properly eradicate a colony.

Hearts Service Professionals are experts at identifying this ant species and finding their colonies, in and around your property.

Landscape Pest Control in Glendale

Aphids are often green in color, depending on the species, with long slender mouthparts that they use to pierce and then suck out fluids from tender parts of plants, usually the leaves.

Large populations of aphids will cause leaves to discolor, turning them yellow.

The honeydew an aphid emits from its rear is a sticky substance that can cause a black, sooty-looking fungus to grow on leaves and stems of plants.

Leaf with aphids and whiteflies

Aphids and whiteflies damage leaves of trees and shrubs.

Besides damage to plants, aphids are a two-fold type of pest because the more aphids you have, the more ants come around in search of the sweet honeydew aphids provide.

In exchange for the honeydew, aphids are protected by the ants and are actually "herded" into safe areas.

This ant behavior is called "farming" and gives an ant colony a stable food source. If you treat for aphids, you´ll have fewer ants.

Giant whiteflies on leaf

Giant Whiteflies on Leaf - Whiteflies resemble a powdery substance.

Whiteflies are another landscape pest for Glendale residents.

Many homeowners grow beautiful hibiscus trees which whiteflies tend to gravitate to and cause damage.

If you´ve noticed a powdery substance on the leaves of your tree, or plants, it´s a sign you have whiteflies.

Hearts Pest Management is able to identify various landscape pests including whitefly and treat as necessary. We provide landscape inspections free-of-charge for both residential and commercial properties.

Rat and Mice Control in Glendale

Rats and mice multiply very quickly; their urine and feces can cause health issues for you and your family.

Just breathing in rodent urine and fecal matter through vents leads to diseases such as hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, leptospirosis, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, which according to CDC (Center for Disease Control) "poses a particular risk for pregnant women."

In Glendale, the roof rat and the Norway rat are the most troublesome of rats. Hearts Pest Management offers free rodent inspections.

We provide trapping, exclusion work (blocking of access points), and attic clean-outs. If necessary, Hearts will also replace damaged insulation.

Bee and Wasp Control in Glendale

The Western Yellowjacket tends to build its nest underground which creates a raised bubble in the surface of the soil.

If you see wasps flying in and out of the ground, you´ll want to stay away from the nest, stepping on a yellowjacket´s nest is how many people get stung while mowing or gardening. Only a professional should rid your landscape of any underground nests.

Other wasps such as yellow paper wasps build their nest in the eaves of a home or patio.

Bee gathering nectar

Honey bee gathering pollen. Note the pollen "basket" on her left hind leg.

If very small, they can be knocked down with a hose but the stem needs to be scraped off or the paper wasps will come back to rebuild.

Larger, active nests should be removed by a professional. Hearts provides free wasp inspections for Glendale customers.

Honey Bees are very important to our food supply, without honeybees pollenating our crops, we would have less of everything.

Hearts only treats, if necessary, for bee hives either with honeycomb in the home or within a hundred feet.

Hearts Pest Management provides free inspections for landscape pests, wasps, bees, roaches, and rodents. General pests can be treated organically if desired. These include ants, spiders, crickets, Oriental roaches (water bugs) and outdoor fleas.

Indoor fleas require a traditional treatment to ensure that the eggs are eliminated as well as the fleas.
