Coffee Berry Borers In Hawaii

There are few bugs that strike as much fear in the heart of coffee growers like the coffee berry borer. It is estimated that this insect is responsible for nearly $500 million in coffee crop damage worldwide each year; and there is currently no treatment that will kill coffee berry borers that have already infested coffee berries. So, when these pests showed up in Hawaii in 2010, it created quite a stir. The DOA set up a quarantine zone on Big Island and mandated that all coffee beans moving off the island be treated; and the team here at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions acted quickly to assist state agencies in reducing the economic impact by setting up a treatment center in Kailua-Kona.

Pest Birds and Hawaii Businesses

Pest birds in Hawaii come in many shapes and colors. They also present many different problems for businesses. Some will create a disturbance by the sounds they make. Others will accidentally fly into machinery. Some are more dangerous to statues and buildings because their feces contain a corrosive agent. Others are more of a danger because they pick disease up from trash heaps and dumpsters and bring them into areas where food products are. Some even do all of the above. Here are a few things you should know about birds in Hawaii.

Are Centipedes Dangerous?

If you have been in Hawaii for any length of time then you have, no doubt, run into a centipede. These leggy creatures can be found pretty much everywhere in Hawaii, but they do prefer moist, damp, dark areas. When outside they are typically found hiding under leaves, brush, rocks, and other dark, damp places. They will venture inside homes and businesses whenever an opportunity to do so arises.
