Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions, originally known as Sandwich Isle Termite & Pest Control, Inc., was founded in 1997 by Michael Botha. Before moving to Hawaii in 1991, Michael grew up working for his family’s termite and pest control company in South Africa. His father, Peter Botha, owned and operated that company for over 40 years before joining Michael in Hawaii. Beginning as a one man operation in 1997, our company has grown to become one of the most successful full service pest control companies in Hawaii. We’ve accomplished this by providing outstanding customer service, offering fair prices and by guaranteeing all of our services.
At Sandwich Isle, we are the largest locally owned pest control company in Hawaii and do more pest management services than any other company throughout the islands. Why should you choose Sandwich Isle? Here are a few reasons:
Since 2011 we have ranked in the Top 100 Pest Management companies in the US (we are the only company based in Hawaii on this list)
We have more certified pesticide applicators than any other Hawaii based pest management company
Are the only pest control company in Hawaii with two Certified Entomologists on-site (Associate Certified Entomologist through the Entomological Society of America)
One of the only Quality Pro Certified Companies in Hawaii – which means that all employees go through intensive pre hire background checks, including drug and criminal background screening
In 2003, Sandwich Isle became Copesan’s Hawaii Region Partner. Copesan is an alliance of regional pest management companies that are united as a single entity for the sole purpose of providing quality pest solutions to business locations throughout North America. As a member of Copesan, Michael J. Botha was invited to join the Copesan Technical Committee, where we have the opportunity to network and share information with some of the industry’s leading entomologists and pest management professionals. This association with Copesan provides Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions all of the benefits of being associated with one of the largest national pest management companies in the world, while still operating independently as a privately owned and managed company. Our partnership with Copesan gives us the ability to service chain accounts anywhere in North America, including Canada and Mexico. We can provide standardized pricing, service protocols, training, reporting and billing nationwide. To learn more about this affiliation, please visit Copesan’s website.
"When Merle came the first day, I explained to him that we had a faculty member who had a rat phobia and he was very understanding. When he came to check the traps, he notified her that he was here to check the traps and she wouldn’t leave her office and wait until he was done. She was very grateful and thankful that he was so understanding. When any of our staff or faculty members had questions, he was very professional and answered their questions. Thank you Merle for being so patient with us. "
