SAN DIEGO - Hearts Pest Management has joined the U.S. EPA's Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP), a voluntary program that forms partnerships with pesticide users to reduce the potential health and environmental risks associated with pesticide use, the company announced.

Hearts has pledged that environmental stewardship is an integral part of its services. The company said IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common sense practices.
