Rat and Mice Control in 4S Ranch

Open areas of natural habitat means more chances of rats and mice finding their way indoors. If you hear noises in the attic or the walls, there’s a good chance you have rats.

Not very long ago, 4S was just that – open areas of chaparral teeming with wildlife. Once building began, it wasn’t unusual to see a coyote traversing neighborhood streets or inside apartment complexes in broad daylight.

Rats and mice are a common pest issue for 4S Ranch.

Rats and Mice carry disease that can be transmitted to humans just by breathing in the smell of their urine or feces. You may wonder how that could possibly happen but it can – through air vents.

Damage in attic by roof rats

Attic with damage to flooring and insulation from rats and mice.

An infestation of rats or mice in your attic or crawl space can mean insulation soaked in urine, feces on the floor of the attic and areas of nesting all lead to breathing in unhealthy air.

If you think you may have rats or mice inside, we provide rodent inspections free-of-charge! At Hearts, we do full rodent trapping and remediation, exclusion, and clean-out of attics and crawl spaces.


Landscape Pest Control

Gophers damage the lawn and destroy prized plants. We can help!

Hearts Pest Management is unique in that every employee is required to obtain both a structural AND a landscape pest control license. Plus, many landscape pests can be treated with our green maintenance program.

Hearts treats a variety of landscape pests such as aphids and whiteflies, scale insects, mealybugs, snails, fungus, and powdery mildew, just to name a few. …

Your Hearts service professional is a consultant when it comes to treating landscape pests.

He or she is trained to do more than “spray and leave” but instead, inspect your garden each service and keep you apprised of any landscape issues and provide preventative tips on how to keep your home and garden looking healthy, beautiful, and pest-free.


Spider Control in 4S Ranch

San Diego’s 4S Ranch has a plethora of different spider species from orb-weavers to wolf spiders and daddy long-legs, jumping spiders and sac spiders but two spiders of concern for your family and pets are the black and brown widow spiders.

Yellow and Black Orb-weaver

Garden Orb-weavers are beneficial pest control agents.

Black and brown widows build messy, Halloween type webs unlike the beautiful, intricate ones created by garden orb-weavers. Both widows like to hide; black widows build their webs in places that are dark and undisturbed such as the corners in a garage, wood piles, and behind furniture.

Brown widow spiders, on the other hand, tend to build their webs under places like patio furniture, outdoor toys, and yes, even swing sets. You can spy a brown widow easily by her spiky, cream-colored egg sac.

Hearts not only treats black and brown widow spiders but destroys the egg sacs and removes webs (up to the first level). For more information on widow spiders, please visit our page on Spider Control.
