Research in the last several years has provided Los Angeles customers with organic options for pest control.

Now you have options when it comes to keeping pests from taking over your living space – You get to choose pest control that is friendly for your home, family, and pets without subjecting your loved ones or the environment, to toxic chemicals.

Pesticides and the Health of Your Family

The information age has brought much in the way of enlightenment to consumers. Pest control is just one of many products and services that bring a question to our mind, “Is this safe for me, for my children and what about our pets?” Conventional pesticides are generally synthetic materials that directly kill the pest. People can be exposed to a pesticide by breathing it in, getting it into the mouth (accidental eating or drinking), or by contact with the skin / eyes. Although pesticides are intended to harm just the targeted pest, if not used correctly, they can also harm people and the environment. This begs the question, “Is your technician certified and well-trained?”

Children are more susceptible to pesticide exposure than adults.

Pesticides affect people differently. Children may be more sensitive compared to adults because they have smaller bodies, they breathe in more air and play in yards and on the floor, not to mention small ones putting objects into their mouths. Other people at risk from pesticide exposure are asthmatic individuals, those with immune disorders or undergoing cancer treatment, and some that are just more sensitive in general. It depends on the type of pesticide and the amount of exposure for it to affect your health. Some pesticides affect the nervous system. Others may irritate the skin or eyes. Some may be carcinogenic. Others may affect the hormone or endocrine system in the body. All good reasons to choose to organic pest control!

At Hearts, we understand how pets are part of your family and should be protected from harsh pesticides that might make them sick. Going organic eliminates the need to keep pets away from treated areas.

Choosing the Right Pest Control in Los Angeles

Be careful when choosing your pest control company. Not all Los Angeles pest control companies are certified in organic pest control. Hearts Pest Management has been recognized by California’s EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) as an IPM Innovator for our leadership and creativity in advancing the use of reduced-risk programs in pest management. What’s the difference between “Green” and “Organic?” Organic infers that the product or service is “natural.” An organic pesticide is a product produced in accordance with The Organic Act and its regulations. Organic pesticides are made up of materials that occur in nature but just like natural products such as arsenic and boric acid, organic products are also considered “toxic” because they are able to kill insects. So even with organic, you don’t want to overly saturate the areas being treated.

Hearts Pest Management is recognized by California’s Environmental Protection Agency as an innovator in Integrated Pest Management.

Green products or services are defined as having the ability to protect or improve the environment. Just because something is labeled as “green” doesn’t mean its “natural.” There are, however, a wide range of products, both natural and synthetic, that have a low toxicity rate making them safer to use than traditional pesticides.

Practicing Integrated Pest Management the Hearts’ Way

At Hearts, our organic pest control service is made up of a combination of organic products and IPM (Integrated Pest Management) methods to control insects and rodents. For example, many pests can be caught with glue board traps, snap traps or they can be mechanically eliminated (physically removing spider egg sacs, eliminating webs from eaves with a web duster, etc.), all non-toxic options. Sharing our knowledge of preventive measures is also a non-toxic way of keeping insects and other pests from coming indoors. Your Hearts service professional may make IPM recommendations such as cutting back trees from touching the roof and shrubs about 12 inches away from the house. Another preventive method may be to refrain from over-watering, especially potted plants where gnats and mosquitoes often lay their eggs.

Argentine ants are difficult to control with Do-It-Yourself methods but they can be – with our organic program.

Is organic pest control more expensive? The answer is yes but not by much. Just as you pay more for organic produce in the supermarket, so do you spend a few extra dollars on organic pest control – but, the cost is often out-weighed by the peace of mind that you receive knowing you and your loved ones have less exposure to chemicals.

How We Do It

The techniques of organic applications for controlling pests are strategic and targeted. They require experienced, certified professionals, to administer the products. This is why Hearts Pest Management is proud to offer you our knowledgeable and experienced EcoWise Certified technicians who can provide alternative options when it comes to pest control.
