Homegrown Poway Pest Control Service

How Hearts Pest Management Came to Be – A Personal Journey

Dear customers and neighbors, I have lived in Poway since 1999, when I came to California with my wife. I have always loved the beautiful landscapes not far from my home in Poway’s Bridlewood community.
  Lake Poway
When the bottom dropped out of high technology in the “dot.com crash,” I explored new fields, combining my expertise in management and technology with a love of the outdoors and agriculture that I developed in my youth. It was on this rainbow covered hilltop garden that I first planted bare root trees and called a company named Hearts Pest Management to help solve a gopher problem that inspired me to purchase a small pest control company that would grow like the trees in my garden into full bloom.

EcoWise Certified Pest Control – CAL EPA Award Winning Green Pest Control

Our company has become a leader, not just in Poway, but throughout the region. We were the first company in southern California to achieve an environmental practices certification called EcoWise Certified. This is a government based certification that demonstrates our unique credentials in organic and green pest control. In fact, we recently won the coveted California E.P.A. Innovator Award in the area of Integrated Pest Management. No other southern California company has ever won this award from the California EPA!

The Employees of Hearts Pest Management

I take pride in all the employees that have come to work for me. We have experts in residential pest control, landscape pest control and commercial pest control. I don’t think you will find another team with so many combined skills to meet all your pest control needs. As you review our customer videos and the customer testimonials, you will find that we get many rave reviews. Hearts Pest Management Staff At Hearts, we provide our largely “blue collar” employees with “white collar” benefits rivaling even the best and well-known firms. In addition to the usual employee benefits, we provide unique bonuses for reaching health and education goals. This approach to our employees lets you, our customers know, that the person coming to your house is entering with a positive, can-do and caring mindset that will result in better pest control service and a better and more memorable experience with your pest control advisor.

Hearts Pest Management – A Complete Pest Control Solution Provider

People come to us for complete pest control solutions that they cannot find anywhere else, such as for total decontamination and cleanups. Many families find that rats and mice are totally out of control in Poway and the result is a totally contaminated attic with bad air quality. Well, Hearts will totally clean up the attic, vacuum and re-insulate! Bees are a common problem in town. Bees commonly fly above the canyons in wind channels and nest in attics and walls of homes that overlook orchards and landscapes with plenty of nectar. Grant that we will never remove bees unless they are posing a danger to people. Bees are dangerous in the wrong locations and can easily inflict life threatening and very painful stings. Should you have gopher problems…. well who doesn’t!…. we have the answers with total control ground baiting or fumigation.
For bed bugs (which are becoming a serious problem for upper income folks who travel the world), we have a very comprehensive program. Almost all birds carry bird mites. Fortunately, we have probably the only experts in the eradication of mites and parasites in San Diego. Of course, like every other town in San Diego, the reputation is that we live on an ant hill. In addition to our organic program, we offer a variety of effective pest control schedules to treat for ants, spiders and other common home invading insects. We are here to find the right combination of schedules and price ranges to meet both your tolerance level of pests and your budget. We are extremely appreciative of the trust and commitment shown to our pest control services in Poway. With gratitude,

Gerry Weitz, President
