Just because termites don’t appear to be around any longer, it doesn’t mean they are gone. Termites in Hawaii are like the bad house guests that overstay their welcome. Some states get a reprieve from the house-eating pests, but not Hawaii. Hawaii’s climate is perfect for termites, and it allows them to be active all year long. So, while you may think they are gone, termites are still hiding away in your walls and under your floor. Here are the top five signs that tell you when termites have moved in.
You are at the post office mailing some letters and happen to glance over at the wall that contains numerous ‘most wanted’ posters. You see the usual suspects, those wanted for robbery, murder, and such; but then something unusual catches your eye. It’s not a person pictured on one of the posters, it’s a termite! That’s right; it’s not just common criminals that you have to protect your home and family from. You also need to protect them from the dangers and damages of termites - 2017’s most unwanted pest!
Many people fear fumigation because it relies on the use of pesticides to eliminate a pest problem, such as termites, cockroaches, or bed bugs, in homes or businesses. Fumigation is an extremely effective pest control method; and in some cases, it is the only reliable method that will completely eliminate an infestation. The professional pest control specialists from Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions are certified applicators specializing in fumigation in Hawaii and ensure the safe delivery of fumigation services.
There are some states where termites are much less of a problem during the winter. Freezing temperatures, frozen ground, and a thick layer of snow, keeps subterranean termites dormant, deep in the ground. And, while there may be snow on the peaks of Big Island, there is not likely to be any snow cover in your yard this winter. That means termites aren't going to be dormant at all. So, if you want to protect your little slice of Hawaiian paradise, you're going to need to have ongoing termite protection.
