Pest Control in Malibu

Southern California’s increasing environmental awareness has the residents and business owners of Malibu wanting more than just an exterminator to provide pest control. They want a company with “Heart.”

Beautiful Malibu – 21 Miles of Scenic Beauty!

Families want safer ways of controlling ants and spiders and other pests without worrying about their children or pets being exposed to chemicals.

At Hearts Pest Management, we put you and the health of your family and pets first, that’s why we’re called a “Company with Heart.”

At Hearts Pest Management, we specialize in Green / Organic Pest Control because we care not only about the environment but also the health and welfare of your family, employees, and pets!

Hearts’ Service Professionals are EcoWise Certified in organic applications.

Our “Greenthumb” maintenance program has products that have been approved by EcoWise Certified, an environmental, health-conscientious company that sets green standards and practices prevention-based pest control.

Because of the unique topography of Malibu in which coast meets mountainside, we recommend a monthly Greenthumb service to provide maximum, green pest control benefits.

Hearts provides a variety of pest control services for homeowners including organic pest control.

We do, however, provide regular pest control for general pests but we still treat only where necessary, and we inspect your property for preventive pest control recommendations upon each service.

Residential Pest Control in Malibu

Sunny southern California has pest problems year-round. Just like humans, pests love the mild winters and warm summers too.

On the coast, spider webs may be more prevalent than inland. On the mountainside and inland areas, rats and mice are an issue. We can help!

Hearts’ service professionals are EcoWise Certified. They employ a variety of common sense techniques to control pests effectively, providing prevention-based pest control that minimizes the need to use pesticides.
Some of the general pests our Greenthumb maintenance program treats are:
  • Ants and Spiders
  • Earwigs (pincher bugs)
  • Oriental Roaches (waterbugs)
  • Outdoor Fleas

We also provide pest control for landscape pests, many of which can be treated organically.

Here are just a few of the types of landscape pests and fungi we treat:

  • Whiteflies
  • Aphids
  • Mealybugs and Scales
  • Powdery Mildew and Sooty Mold
  • Snails
  • Crickets

Spider and Ant Control in Malibu

Spiders: Living on the coast, you may have noticed a lot of spider webs that constantly need knocking down. As soon as you do, more appear overnight.

Residents living on the coast of Malibu notice more spider webs. This is because of a behavior spiders have called “ballooning.”

Here’s why; spiders have a behavior called “Ballooning” which takes them across town to other neighborhoods.

Young spiderlings climb up high on a plant, tree, or fence and then they release a single strand of thread that gets caught up in winds coming from the ocean.

The ocean currents send these baby spiders sailing right into your yard or porch where new infestations begin.

Many spiders are harmless but their webs can be unsightly. Hearts’ service technicians not only treat for spiders, they de-web and remove any egg sacs as well.

Ants receive honeydew from aphids in exchange for protection by corralling aphids onto the underside of a leaf, away from predators.

Ants: During summertime, ants arrive in droves looking for food and water… then in the winter, they come indoors to get away from the water – rain! Needless to say, ants are a year-round problem.

It’s true, ants do have their place, aerating the soil and eating decomposed matter but once they start coming inside your home, they definitely become – pests!

Hearts has both traditional and organic pest control to keep ants at bay. Check out our main page for Ants and Spiders where you will find information on specific ant and spider species.

Hearts cares about beneficial insects like this praying mantis. One of our service technicians found this one and carried him to safety before treating.

A Word Regarding Beneficial Insects: Many of our Malibu customers are concerned about the environment and the welfare of beneficial insects such as ladybugs, bees, lacewings, butterflies, and praying mantids.

This is why we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM) solutions to pest control.

methods often prevent the need for chemicals. Your service professional will provide you with tips on how to keep pests from entering your home and destroying your landscape.

When your technician treats for ants and spiders around your home, he is careful to avoid flowering plants even with the organic products, and only treat where necessary.

Rat Control in Malibu

Special ordinances in the City of Malibu prohibit the use of baits for controlling rats. However, we provide weekly or bi-weekly rat trapping for Malibu residents and businesses that have rodent problems.

Malibu pest control can be challenging because of the different pests that are attracted to both coastal and mountainous regions.

Our Malibu customers living in homes tucked away in the mountainside tend to keep up with the town ordinances of “no baiting” and prefer our rodent trapping maintenance plan.

Hearts Pest Management is a strong presence in Malibu; you may have seen our trucks with the big “Heart” on the side.

Just know that we are near at hand to provide weekly or if you prefer, every other week trapping for rats and mice.

If you find you’re hearing noises in the walls, attic, or crawlspace of your home, you probably have rats inside that need to be trapped and an exclusion done to block off where they got in.

We provide trapping and remediation, exclusions, and clean-outs for indoor rat infestations.

Commercial Pest Control in Malibu

Restaurants have a special need for pest control, especially for roaches, flies, and mice.

When it comes to having your own business, a good name (and review) is important. Let us help keep your pest problems under control, so you can keep your good name!

Hearts provides pest control for Malibu restaurants, coffee shops, retail establishments, and more!

Many of our commercial customers opt for our Greenthumb maintenance plan to ensure the health of both employees and customers.

Here are just a few of the types of commercial pests we treat:

Drain flies and gnats, roaches, bed bugs, ants, mice and rats, and water bugs.
