Pest Control in Fountain Valley

Fountain Valley Pest Control

Fountain Valley, CA – A Nice Place to Live

At Hearts Pest Management, our goal is to prevent pests from entering your Fountain Valley home while at the same time, protect you and your loved ones from exposure to harsh chemicals.

We understand the concern in regards to pesticide use and so we decided, many years ago, to develop an organic pest control plan.

We do provide a traditional, standard pest control service but we provide this plan with IPM (Integrated Pest Management) solutions as well.

IPM helps prevent future infestations with a little help from you, the customer, such as trimming branches away from the sides and roof of the house.

We are EcoWise Certified in Organic Pest Control!

IPM also includes treating only when and where necessary. In other words, our service professionals don’t just spray willy-nilly; they are very careful to protect beneficial insects by avoiding flowering plants. The standard pest control service covers ants, spiders, earwigs and many other nuisance insects.

For those with special needs or concerns, we have our certified green pest control service with organic and other low-impact options.

Our Residential Greenthumb Pest Control Plan

We have a variety of residential pest control services for Fountain Valley homes.

On the coastal side of Fountain Valley, where temperatures are lower, a bi-monthly service may be all that you need whereas for inland Fountain Valley residents, we recommend our Greenthumb maintenance pest control plan monthly during spring and summer, with the option of switching to our winter bi-monthly during the winter.

In southern California, people often think pests arrive only during the summer months but insects like the weather here too and are year-round.

For instance, ants are seen more during the summer but in the winter, after a bit of rain, all of a sudden you find trails of ants in your kitchen or bathroom.

You can learn more about organic and residential pest control on the following pages: Green / Organic Pest Control; Residential Pest Control.

Some pests respond to different types of treatment and product, that’s why communication is important. You and your Hearts technician are a team; he/she will keep you apprised of any potential pest issues.

Rat and Mice Control in Fountain Valley

Did you know that rodents not only contaminate but they also damage wiring? Rodent infestations generally require an exclusion – sealing up access routes the rodents used to enter your home. Sometimes it’s a hole in the wall behind a stove or by an air conditioner.

Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a dime!  There is simply no way of knowing how many routes there are or the cost until we inspect your property. The inspection is free!

Your technician will conduct a thorough visual inspection and provide you with a quote on that day, and if you are ok with the price, he can start trapping or set up rodent bait stations right away. Visit our page on Rat and Mice Control to learn more about our rodent control services.

Did you know that while some ants like sweets others prefer protein?

Ant and Spider Control in Fountain Valley

Ants: Ants are a year-round pest in southern California. You’ve heard of the invasive Argentine ant… invaders from South America. Well guess what? They’ve built a huge super colony in California, one of three in the entire world! Lucky us!

This particular species is hard to control by yourself because just when you think you’ve got them handled, another trail appears somewhere else in the house. Why? Because Argentine ants, unlike other ant species, have multiple queens.

When they feel threatened, one or more of the queens will break away from the colony and start one of their own elsewhere in your home.

Your pest control service professional can identify this and other ant species to determine the best treatment options. He or she, will also check for and treat any ant nests surrounding your home. Check out our page on Ants and Spiders for more information.

Spiders: Spiders are solitary creatures; unlike ants that live in colonies, spiders need to be seen to get at them. Our service technicians are experts at hunting down black and brown widows, the two most common spiders around the home that are toxic to humans.

We'll also remove webs and egg sacs and treat, at the same time, the spider's food source - insects.

A Buzz about Bees

Bees are never pests unless they are building a hive on or near your home! We care about beneficial insects!

At Hearts, we understand the importance of honeybees for our food supply and do our best to save them as much as possible.

We only treat bees when necessary; that is if they pose a threat to you or your family, if the hive is within 100 ft. of your home, and if they are making honeycomb and a hive inside your walls, crawl space or attic.

Below is a photo of what honeycomb inside of a home looks like – a real mess and requires a clean-out. For more information on how we remove honeycomb visit our main page: Hive and Honeycomb Removal

Old and fresh honeycomb inside a customer’s wall.

Once bees get inside your attic or crawl space, they will create a hive of honeycomb.

If you notice bees going in and out of a small hole or crevice of your roof, most likely they’re setting up home. Don’t wait until you have honeycomb dripping from your ceiling or someone getting stung.

Landscape Pest Control

Our approach to landscape pests is to first perform a physical inspection to properly identify the pests and then provide a plan of action to get your garden plants and shrubs looking healthy again.

Hearts treats a variety of landscape pests such as aphids, whitefly, fungus, sooty mold, mealy bugs, snails, and many other types of plant damaging insects.

Keep pests away from your prized plants with our landscape pest management.

There are other pests in your garden I’m sure you’re aware of, especially if they’re pulling your prized plants by the roots and into their burrows…gophers and squirrels. We provide a monthly service and inspection of your property to keep these rodents from destroying your landscape.

But first, whether it be rodents or insects in your yard, we do a free landscape inspection to determine your needs. Check out our page: Landscape and Garden Pest Control
