Ant Control in Rancho Cucamonga

Situated in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, summers are very warm but if you live or work here, you don’t need to be told about the weather! You know how hot it can get!

 

Starting in spring, ants begin their march indoors, not just one by one but colony by colony!

 

The most common and problematic ant species for Cucamongans, are the invasive Argentine ants.

 

Some ants prefer protein over sweets.

It takes a professional to get rid of Argentine ants, here’s why:

 

Argentine ants are hard to control with “Do-it-yourself” pest control methods because they can actually move their colony – within just a few hours!

 

These ants are escape artist. They will escape when feeling threatened or break off and start another colony. Argentine ants have more than one queen inside a colony which is why they can have multiple colonies in a given area.

 

Our service professionals will search out and eliminate ant nests.

 

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

 

Hearts' professionals are experts at identifying Argentine and other ant species and treat according to their behavior, likes, and dislikes.

 

For instance, some ants like sweets while others prefer protein, including grease!
We have both traditional and organic products to treat for and stop ant infestations.

Spider Control in Rancho Cucamonga

 

For the most part, spiders around the home like the common Daddy Long-legs typically seen in the corners of the ceiling are harmless.

 

So are the back yard Orb-weavers; their spider mouth parts (chelicerae) are too small to penetrate human skin. Plus, they get rid of garden pests by eating insects like aphids and caterpillars.

 

Good News?! The Brown Widow spider is less toxic and is slowly displacing the Black Widow.

 

The most important spiders to be wary of are the “Widow’ spiders. These are the spiders that require pest control. Both Black and Brown Widows are easily identified by the shape of an hourglass under their bulbous abdomens. The hourglass on the Brown widow is orange and the Black widow’s hourglass is red.

If you can’t see under the belly but you do see a cream-colored spiky egg sac, then you know you’ve got a Brown widow.

 

You’re probably thinking, “I am not about to look under a spider’s belly!" Understandable! We can help!

 

The Brown widow likes to hide under things such as patio furniture and outdoor toys. Black widows, however, are notorious for dark corners, especially in the garage.

 

Hearts will not only treat and eliminate spiders but remove (web dust) around the perimeter of your home as well.

 

Your service professional will advise you on ways to keep spiders from making your home their home.

Rodent Control

Eeeeeek! A rat!!!

 

Why a photo of snails instead of rats? Because rats are attracted to snails! They eat them! If you provide a food source such as a landscape full of snails, the rats will come!

 

Breathing in the smell of urine and feces through air vents can transmit disease to you and your family!

Rats and Mice

 

Both rats and mice can enter a home, new or old, through small cracks and openings left by construction workers or just regular wear-and-tear over time.

 

Hearts Pest Management provides pest control of rats, mice, gophers, and squirrels. We offer rodent inspections free-of-charge to Rancho Cucamonga residents.

 

No matter whether you live in a newer home or an older one, rats and mice will find their way indoors through small cracks and gaps left by construction and plumbing.

Did you know that rats eat snails? If you have a lot of snails, you could be encouraging rats to visit your property.

Roof rats are excellent climbers; they're opportunist and will take advantage of any tree branches near the roof to gain access into your attic. Once roof rats are in your attic, they’ll damage and destroy the insulation with their urine and feces.

Protecting Beneficial Insects – We Care!

Hearts’ realizes the importance of beneficial insects like this Praying Mantis.

Hearts Pest Management service professionals practice Integrated Pest Management for maintaining your garden landscape while at the same time, being mindful of the environment and beneficial insects.

 

Lady bugs, praying mantis, honeybees, and garden orb-weavers all help keep landscape pests at bay, however, being so small, there's only so much they can do!

Here's how we care!

 

Let me share with you a couple of instances how Hearts Pest Management’s technicians show they care for beneficial insects and the environment …

 

One tech accidentally sprayed near a praying mantis and although he was using organic products, he decided to pick her up and wash her off, just to make sure she would be ok! Ms. Praying Mantis wasn’t too happy, as you can see from the photo, but it really was for her own good. ...

 

Another tech (a supervisor mind you) told me he leaves orb weaver spiders alone in the landscape because they act like “miniature pest control agents.”
Ok, enough of the warm fuzzies about beneficial insects...

 

You’ve got ants or water bugs or rats and you want them gone!
Your Hearts Service Professional will eliminate the pests AND he/she will also search out the cause of an infestation proving suggestions on how to prevent future infestations.
