Upland Pest Control

Upland, California gets pretty warm during the summer months but pests tend to be year-round rather than seasonal in this Mediterranean climate. Hearts Pest Management practices both organic and traditional pest control to keep your home or business pest-free.

Upland in 1906!

Upland is one big ant hill – Argentine ants have built a super colony in Southern California, one reason why you have ants winter, spring, summer, and fall!

Spiders, ants, earwigs, big ugly water bugs, and fleas are constant invaders. Although, some parts of the year, these pests can be a bit more prevalent.

For instance, flea infestations usually happen in the late summer, spiders galore in the fall, and of course, ants in the spring and summer but did you know ants are winter pests as well?

Ant Control in Upland

You may think you don’t need pest control in the winter, not so … while ants come indoors in search of water during the hot summer months, in winter, they come inside trying to get away from the water, viz. - rain.

It’s not just food and water ants search for, they can infest your plants as well.
Ants are “farmers” of aphids; they herd aphids underneath leaves to protect the aphids from predators. They do this in exchange for honeydew aphids expel from their rear-ends!

Hearts Pest Management can treat for ants with our “Greenthumb,” organic service program. Our professionals are experts at identifying ant species and determining where their nests are located.

Spider Control in Upland

Brown and Black widows are the two main spiders of concern, since both are venomous. The Brown widow is less toxic than the Black widow and is becoming more common around the home, especially under patio furniture.

Orb-weavers are harmless, beneficial garden spiders.

Both spider webs are easy to identify; messy, Halloween-looking webs. Black widows have a red hourglass shape on their bulbous behinds and brown widows have an orange hourglass.

Toxic Widow Spiders!

Another way you know it’s a Brown widow is by the female’s spiky, cream-colored egg sac.
If you have a lot of spiders, it’s because there are many insects around your home for them to feed upon.
We treat for spiders and their food source.

Rats and Mice

Rats and mice can be a nuisance throughout the year but they reproduce in the winter which means they are very motivated to find a cozy attic for nesting.
Mice and rats will go after bags of food, such as cat or dog food. To protect your pet food, keep it in tightly sealed containers.

Hearts provides Upland residents and business owners free rodent inspections. Inspecting the property and attic is the first step if you have indoor rats.
Your service professional may recommend trapping and blocking off access points where the rats or mice have made their way inside.

Rat Fact: The odor of urine coming through vents can trigger allergies, especially in children because their immune systems are still developing.

It’s important to get a rat infestation under control not just for preserving the home from damage but for the safety of your family. Rats and mice are known carriers of diseases such as the Hantavirus.

Hearts’ service professionals are EcoWise Certified in organics. We care about beneficial insects like this Seven-spotted ladybug!
