My training at Hearts Pest Management

My name is Marco A. Ramos and I am a part time landscape technician who just recently started working for Hearts Pest Management. So far, my experience has been great. This job has lots of similarities with my recent landscaping job but it also has many differences, many of which I am still learning about.

My training so far has been great and thanks to John Chi and Duke Phan, I have been able to learn, laugh, and enjoy helping customers with their pest problems. These two individuals along with my employer, Gerry Weitz, have helped me on my journey to success in the pest management business.

HeartsPM Selected for EPA Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program

Hearts Pest Management, based on a record of past IPM (integrated pest management) accomplishments and a firm commitment to the goals of IPM, was approved for membership in the U.S. EPA’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP).

This new membership will provide Hearts a new avenue to share and learn additional ways to reduce the potential health and environmental risks associated with pesticide use. By joining, Hearts has pledged to be guided in all its’ actions by “environmental stewardship” as an integral part of pest management. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of non-chemical strategies as well as pesticide focused strategies to assure best outcomes for both our clients and the overall welfare of our environment.

EPA’s Frank Ellis states, “I am pleased that Hearts Pest Management is taking a leadership role, along with our other members, in working with the EPA on environmental stewardship.”

White Velvet Ants

This female White Velvet Ant isn’t an ant at all…..she’s a wasp! Velvet ants look like big hairy ants but they’re actually solitary living wasps. The female has no wings and so, sad to say, she cannot fly but she sure can move fast. Thistledown Velvet Ants blend in with the creosote bush because of their white hair which mimics the fuzzy “fruits” of the creosote. Read more
